Are you ready to plant your native garden?


Tualatin Hills Nature Park set to host Fall Native Plant Sale

Want to give your garden a stronger start next spring? Get those native plants in the soil now.

Once established, native plants produce a landscape that needs little care, water, fertilizer or pesticides. They also provide greater benefits for wildlife than traditional landscaping.

Area residents will be able to select from a wide variety of trees, shrubs and flowering plants in all price ranges and for every spot in the garden on Saturday as the Tualatin Hills Park and Recreation District holds its annual Fall Native Plant Sale.

The event will be held at the Tualatin Hills Nature Park, 15655 S.W. Millikan Way in Beaverton, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Admission is free.

To view the more than 75 plants on the plant sale list, visit thprd.org/facilities/naturepark/nativeplantsales.cfm.

Besides having a broad selection of plants to choose from, novice gardeners — or those with experience — can consult with knowledgeable staff and volunteers about native plants and their benefits.

All proceeds from the sale support the Friends of the Tualatin Hills Nature Park and go toward future park improvements and educational programs. For more information, call the Tualatin Hills Nature Park Interpretive Center at 503-629-6350.
