Native seedling sale under way

Persimmons [NVSWCD]
The Northern Virginia Soil and Water Conservation District’s annual seedling sale started Feb. 1.

In keeping with this year’s theme, Incredible Edibles, the sale features native shrubs and trees that provide fruit, berries, and nuts for wildlife, and in some cases, treats for humans.

Seedlings can be ordered online by April 2 or until supplies run out.

Two packages are available: 10 bare-root shrubs and small trees for $17.50 and six bare-root trees for $12.50.

The shrub and tree package includes two seedlings each of American Wild Plum, Pawpaw, American Elderberry, Black Chokeberry, and American Hazelnut.

The tree package has two each of Flowering Dogwood, American Persimmon, and Common Hackberry.

The NVSWCD urges the public to add native plants to their gardens to help clean the water and air, prevent soil erosion, provide valuable habitat, and add beauty and resilience to landscapes.

Customers can pick up their seedlings April 5 and 6 at the Sleepy Hollow Bath & Racquet Club, 3516 Sleepy Hollow Road.
