Gardening with Native Plants


Are you a gardener—or do you dream of being one? Get some inspiring ideas when you learn about Michigan’s native plants on Thurs., May 10 at 7 pm at the downtown Library. Greg Vaclavek of Native Plant Nursery will tell us about native Michigan plant species and the benefits of growing them. The folks from Native Plant Nursery can be found at the Ann Arbor Farmer’s Market every Saturday from mid-April through September. The graceful plant in the photo is Nodding Wild Onion or Allium cernuum.

Speaking of plants... Our friends and neighbors from Abbott’s Landscape Nursery will be at the Pittsfield Branch on Saturday, May 26 from 2-4 pm with a display of edible herbs. Bring a container (or use one of ours) and take home a plant! This is a drop-in program, so come early, learn about these delicious plants, and leave with a start for your herb garden.
