WALPOLE, N.H. – The Cheshire County Conservation District has extended the order deadline for their 2019 Conservation Plant Sale. Orders are now due to the district no later than Feb. 26. Community members should browse their 2019 catalog for offerings of fruit trees, berries, shade trees, shrubs, groundcover, perennials, medicinals, summer blubs, wildflower seed mix, and local mushrooms. Shipping costs are included.
Many of the species we offer are native, attractive to pollinators, and drought resistant. For this reason, they are healthy, hardy plants adapted to our local growing conditions and beneficial to both the grower and wildlife. Once established they require less watering, fertilizers, and pesticides, saving you time and money. Join us for “Supporting Pollinators in Your Backyard,” a workshop that may inform your purchasing Friday, Feb. 22, 4:30-6 p.m., at the Hannah Grimes Center in Keene.
All proceeds of the plant sale help to cover operating costs of the CCCD and will benefit conservation efforts in Cheshire County. Thus, in addition to improving your landscape you are helping fund conservation projects in your local community. For more information and to receive order forms, contact the Conservation District office at 603-756-2988 ext. 115 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
