Native Plant Sale to Protect Your Shoreline

From the Haliburton Highlands Land Trust

The Haliburton Highlands Land Trust (HHLT) is pleased to announce the 2016 spring online native plant sale. We have shoreline bundles that may be perfect for naturalizing your shoreline and a number of other shrubs and trees that will beautify and increase biodiversity on your property. These plants will enhance habitats for frogs, fish and butterflies, as well as a host of other creatures.

Shoreline bundles contain 25 plants in total – five of each of the following species:  Alternate-leafed Dogwood, Red Osier Dogwood, American Highbush Cranberry, Nannyberry and American Elderberry.  It is recommended that each sapling be planted about 15 feet apart.

Plan to take advantage of bulk pricing available through the annual Spring Native Plant Sale. Available for a limited time only – orders are taken each year starting in late winter, and are due before April 1st. Annual offerings may change, subject to availability. 

Whether your goal is to plant a tree or protect your shoreline with native plants, this is the place to start. 

Because many of these seedlings are bare root, they need to be planted right away if they are to survive which is why it’s important to have a plan in place before picking up your plants.
