We held a Staff Workday on Friday, March 9, and couldn't have asked for better weather to spend the day outside. The morning was spent down at the Greenhouse, potting shrubs and trees in preparation for our annual spring Native Plant Sale on Saturday, April 7. The plant selection for this year's Sale will include over 40 varieties of native plants, including Bottlebrush Buckeye (Aesculus parviflora), Grayheaded Coneflower (Ratibida pinnata), Silphium, Scarlet Buckeye (Aesculus pavia), Red Oak (Quercus rubra), White Oak (Quercus alba), and so much more.
Later on in the day, new white oaks (Quercus alba) and red oaks (Quercus rubra) were planted near the Quarry. All in all it was a successful Workday for the Ruffner staff!
Don't forget the annual spring Native Plant Sale on Saturday, April 7 from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and find your favorite natives to beautify your yard or home garden. We hope to see you there!
