You’ve made plans for a butterfly/pollinator friendly garden, the plant list is complete and now you’re on the hunt for where to buy native plants.
There are several native plant sales coming up this spring, some with pre-order options. If the plant sales don’t offer everything you need, there are native plant nurseries in the area that might be able to fill your wish list.
