WALPOLE, N.H. — The Cheshire County Conservation District is currently accepting orders for its Annual Conservation Plant Sale. This year the District continues their partnership with Fedco of Maine to bring you a wide range of top-quality plants. Order deadline is February 28, 2020.
New in 2020, customers are invited to choose from the full selection of plants in the Fedco “Trees & Plants for Spring Planting” Catalog. Many of the species offered are native, attractive to pollinators, and drought resistant. For this reason, they are healthy, hardy plants adapted to our local growing conditions and beneficial to both the grower and wildlife. Once established they require less watering, fertilizers, and pesticides, saving you time and money.
To view the Fedco Catalog and print order forms, visit the CCCD website at www.cheshireconservation.org/
All orders and payment must be received by the Conservation District no later than February 28, 2020. Checks should be made out to “CCCD” and mailed to 11 Industrial Park Dr. Walpole, NH 03608. Hard copy catalogs available upon request. Customers should plan to pick up their orders at the Plant Sale Pick-Up Day, scheduled for April 25, 2020 from 9am-1pm at Alyson’s Orchard in Walpole.
All proceeds of the plant sale help to cover operating costs of the CCCD and will benefit conservation efforts in Cheshire County. Thus, in addition to improving your landscape you are helping fund conservation projects in your local community.
