Gainesville’s annual native plant sale is around the corner, so get your plastic car liners ready! Natives make a wonderful addition to any landscape. Many are quite beautiful, are lower maintenance, help local wildlife and require little to no watering. The sale is 8:30-12:30pm, Oct 6th. There will also be a guided nature walk, music and planting advice. Members of the Friends of Nature Parks, and Florida Native Plant Society get an exclusive sale day on Friday, October 5th, 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm, and memberships are available at the gate. Only cash and checks are accepted. Proceeds from the sale raise money for the City’s Parks Department, so this is a win for everyone!
