Is it really mid-October already? We’re running into the last few weeks for good fall planting. There are always exceptions, such as bare root plants or planting completely dormant trees and shrubs in late winter, but as a general rule I recommend getting your native plants in the ground before the end of October. With that in mind, next Saturday, October 16, will be my last plant sale of the season.
I will be setting up at the SoKY Chapter of the Wild Ones’ Native Plant Sale on October 16 at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Bowling Green (2033 Nashville Road, Bowling Green, KY). Many of the trees and shrubs are 2-3 feet tall, some are over 4 feet tall. I can’t emphasize enough that this is the best time to plant natives.
A full list of everything I currently have available can be found below. I won’t be able to bring everything to the Native Plant Sale, because it won’t all fit in the car. If you want to make sure that I bring the plants you want, then I encourage you to pre-order your plants. I’ll choose which “other” plants I bring to the sale after I fill the pre-orders.
Honey and Beeswax
In addition to my native plants, I will be bringing some of my 2021 honey. This honey is what I harvested in July 2021, so if from nectar that my honey bees harvested in during the spring and early summer. Honey doesn’t go bad so you can stock up or get a bunch for Christmas gifts. I also have 1 oz blocks of beeswax from my hives! This is the first year I’ve had extra beeswax that I could sell.
Here is the list of everything I’ll have available for October 16. If you have any questions, please let me know and I’ll be happy to help in any way I can. If you want to put in an order, just send me an email with what you want.
