Native perennials sourced from Spence Restoration Nursery, Indiana’s premier native plant supplier since 1998, will be a primary emphasis of the plant sale. The plants will include those suitable for rain gardens, butterfly gardens, and as primary pollinator food sources. Also available will be landscape flowers, spring-planted bulbs, and miscellaneous trees and shrubs. Experts are on-hand during the sale to answer questions and guide selections. The proceeds from the sale will benefit ongoing gardening efforts at the site. Maple syrup and volunteer-produced jam and jelly will also be available for purchase, and members of Friday Musicale will provide music inside the 1892 main house which will also be open to visitors.
