Conservation District extends annual plant sale

Sullivan County, N.H. — The 2013 Sullivan County Conservation District Plant Sale is underway and due to the high level of interest the deadline for orders is now April 4, a week later than previously advertised.

View the Plant Sale catalog and order form via the County website (Conservation District) : www.sullivancountynh.gov.

Plant pick up will be at Log Cabin Nursery in Claremont on May 4.

The plant sale is the Conservation District’s biggest fundraiser and supports their activities throughout the year, including educational workshops, environmental outreach to schools and communities, tours and programs.

The sale offers healthy and hardy plants at good prices. The selection includes: fruits (apples, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, and peaches), perennial vegetables, (rhubarb, asparagus, horseradish and ostrich ferns – for grow-your-own “fiddleheads!”), hardwood and softwood trees, and wildlife plants.

Special and hard-to-find ornamentals are new this year. The offering lists six named varieties of lilacs (early-, mid- and late-blooming), an azalea, and two kinds of magnolia trees.
