An Invite to All form the Niagara Native Gardening Club and Ontariogreen, in partnership with the Town of Lincoln

Niagara, Ontario – Fall is the perfect time to add trees and shrubs to your garden.
To help you pick a plant that will not only provide you with the shade and beauty you want, but that will also benefit our local environment, the Niagara Native Gardening Club and Ontariogreen, in partnership with the Town of Lincoln, is holding our Second Annual Native Tree and Shrub sale.
There will be more than a dozen species to choose from. A list of the trees and shrubs available, along with information about their features, size, soil requirements etc. is available here: http://www.ontariogreen.ca/tree-sale.html Payment for your tree and shrub order can be securely online through Paypal, Debit or Credit Card.
The trees and shrubs are in the 3 gal. pot size and cost $25. The exception are some year-old Pawpaw saplings that will be available for $ 5 (limited supply).
All the species have been selected due to their unique characteristics and wildlife value. Many support particular butterfly and bird species and some, like the Cherry Birch are endangered or rare. One, the Pawpaw, produces an edible fruit with a deep yellow, pudding-like centre with an exotic flavour.
If you love Nutella, you may want to select an American Hazelnut and if you are into jam making, elderberries will be available.
“One of the most important things we can do to protect our environment is to plant the trees and shrubs that belong here,” says Vernah Fleming, founder of the Niagara Native Gardening Club. She notes that native butterflies and moths, not to mention birds, rely on the food provided by native trees and shrubs.
All the trees and shrubs orders can be picked up at the Town of Lincoln’s Town Hall parking lot (east side) at 4800 S. Service Road, Beamsville, on Saturday, 10th, October between 10 and noon. Alternate arrangements can be made by calling Liz at 905-562-3819.
Niagara Native Gardening Club and Ontariogreen would like to thank the Town of Lincoln and Earthgen Tree Nursery ( https://www.earthgen.ca ) for their support of the tree/shrub sale.
