Conservation district has native plants for sale Saturday

The King Conservation District will hold its Native Plant Sale and Community Fair Saturday, March 1, in Renton.

The sale and fair are 10 a.m.-4 p.m., 1107 S.W. Grady Way.

More than 40,000 plants were pre-ordered, and the district will have an additional 17,000 native plants available for walk-up sales.

The annual King Conservation District Native Plant Sale is a source of affordable plants for use in home landscapes, hedgerows, reforestation, and habitat restoration.

In addition to more than three dozen species of bareroot plants, the district also will have several plants in 4-inch pots, including ferns, Trillium and Wild Ginger.

The sale is a chance to meet with representatives from a dozen organizations and agencies providing a wide array of ideas and information on all aspects of protecting and enhancing the environment, including rain gardens and traditional uses of native plants.

This year's Community Fair participants will include the Washington Native Plant Society, Newcastle Weed Warriors, Snoqualmie Tribe, Seattle Tilth Garden Hotline, King County Noxious Weed Control Program, Save Habitat & Diversity of Wetlands (SHADOW), Rain Dog Designs, Stone Soup Gardens, Scarecrow's Pride, Friends of the Cedar River Watershed, and Tadpole Haven Native Plants.
