April 1, 2015 Bird House on the Greenway is going to make it easy for you! Starting April 20th, we will have native milkweed plants in 4" pots for sale for a limited time. Asclepias tuberosa, or Butterfly Weed, is an easy perennial to grow that will make a big impact for the monarch, year after year. We will be selling them on a first come first serve basis. To ensure the milkweed we sell will have the largest impact possible for butterflies and other wildlife around the state, we will be donating the proceeds from the First Annual Milkweed Sale to the North Carolina Wildlife Federation where they will put that money to work preserving and restoring butterfly and other wildlife habitat across the state. This is our first time doing this so we have no idea how popular it will be, so to ensure as many people as possible get some milkweed, we will be limiting sales to 5 plants per family, at least at the beginning. So, as you are making plans of what to plant in your garden this spring. save some space for milkweed and be a part the team to help save the beautiful monarch butterfly!
