Mark your calendar’s for the Land Trust’s Annual Native Plant Sale!
Saturday, September 23 from 9 am to Noon at Bainbridge First Baptist Church
Stock up on beautiful nursery grade plants for your yard or garden and support the ongoing efforts of the Bainbridge Island Land Trust.
Why a Fall Plant Sale?
In 2016, the Land Trust held its first ever Fall Native Plant Sale. Due to its success we have decided to transition our annual sale from spring to fall in order to offer nursery-grade plants at optimal planting time! Planting during the wetter fall months helps increase plant vigor by reducing transplant shock and watering requirements. Our native plant collection includes a variety of ground covers, shrubs, and trees.
Why Native Plants?
Native plants are best suited to our unique northwest environment. They are built to withstand our long wet winters, and our dry summers and are shown to be more resistant to disease. They require less maintenance overall and help improve habitat and water quality across the Island. View the full selection of plants below!
Early Access for Land Trust Members
