2018 Spring Plant Sale

Onondaga Audubon and Habitat Gardening in Central NY (HGCNY) will once again host a spring plant sale.

This year’s sale will include the 2018 Birdy Dozen plus the 10 plants we featured on the 2017 list.

Like last year, this is a PRE-ORDER sale. Plants can be picked up on Sat., May 19 in the Westvale area (or by other arrangements if you are doing Birdathon and this isn’t possible).

We don’t have specific price information yet and we won’t be taking orders for plants UNTIL MARCH, but this is a good time to think about which plants best fit your needs and conditions.
