Native Plants

Native plants support birds and wildlife. They also look fantastic! Learn more about how native plants can create a beautiful habitat in your backyard. Throughout the month of October, the plants at our Native Plant Nursery [at Beechwood Farms Nature Reserve] are being offered at discounted prices. Fall is a great time to plant your garden!
