Go green this year with a visit to the annual Wildflower, Native Plant and Seed Sale. Native plants are adapted to local growing conditions, requiring less water and intensive care in the garden. Many attract songbirds, hummingbirds, and butterflies along with beneficial insects. In addition, local plants can tolerate local insect pests, and not bring foreign insects into your garden creating more issues.
For a full list of plants offered at the sale, check here. All plants are carefully nursery-propagated, most by Conservancy volunteers. Wildflower seeds from the Conservancy Garden, hand-collected, cleaned and packaged by the volunteers, will also be sold.
Don’t forget to visit the Wildflower gardens outside the Brandywine River Museum and take a stroll along the Brandywine River. Families with young children will find the path easy to navigate, though not stroller-friendly. These paths are part of the Brandywine Struble Greenway, a planned 30-mile long green corridor of varying width, stretching from the Delaware state line at Chadds Ford to the state-designated Pennsylvania Highlands Mega-Greenway in the north.
