Grimsby Garden Club hosts Earth Day tree & shrub sale to support Grimsby’s natural heritage
Spring is the perfect time to add trees and shrubs to your garden and this year, why not pick a tree that benefits everyone who spends time in your yard? Native plants support a range of native species from butterflies to birds and add interest for people, too. Gardeners don’t have to do a big conversion to a native landscape. Every added native plant helps, and trees help the most!
That’s why the Grimsby Garden Club and Ontariogreen, in partnership with the Town of Grimsby, is holding their First Annual Earth Day Carolinian Native Tree & Shrub Sale.
The trees and shrubs for sale are native to our special Carolinian eco-zone. They are critical to our birds and their fledglings in the Spring and to our pollinators throughout the season. Bringing native trees to each home is a simple and critical step to keeping Grimsby’s natural heritage intact. Consider the vibrantly-coloured, spring-blooming Redbud, or the exotic-flavoured fruit of the Pawpaw.
There will be more than a dozen species to choose from. A list of the trees and shrubs available, along with information about their features, size, soil requirements etc. is available here: http://www.ontariogreen.ca/tree-sale.html
Payment for your tree and shrub order can be made securely online through PayPal, Debit or Credit Card.
The trees and shrubs sizes available are: 1 gal pot size for $20; 3 gal pot size for $30 and rare deciduous varieties for $40 in a 3 gal pot size.
All the trees and shrubs orders can be picked up at the Town of Grimsby’s Town Hall parking lot (back parking lot) at 160 Livingston Ave, Grimsby, on Thursday, April 22nd between 6:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. Alternate arrangements can be made by calling Liza Fuller at 289-680-6087.
The Grimsby Garden Club and Ontariogreen would like to thank the Town of Grimsby; Earthgen Tree Nursery (https://www.earthgen.ca) and Field 2 Home (https://field2home.com) for their support of the Carolinian Native Tree/Shrub sale.
