2019 Plant Sale Now Open!

AdkAction’s Adirondack Pollinator Project is delighted to offer a local Pollinator Plant sale again in 2019. One of the most important things you can do to help hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees in the Adirondacks is to plant a pollinator garden.

With the help of Cook & Gardener Nursery, we have carefully chosen pollinator plants that thrive in the Adirondacks. All of the plants offered have been carefully sourced or grown from seed to ensure that they have never come in contact with neonicotinoids (a class of insecticides that are harmful to pollinators). Whether you plant a few or many, they will help rebuild the monarch butterfly population, attract hummingbirds and strengthen native bee and moth populations.

To encourage you to transform your yard into pollinator habitat, we are offering native, pesticide-free plants for only $10 each. Planting packages that include garden designs and all the plants you need to create them are also available at a 10% savings to you!  All plants available through this sale are grown naturally and are not treated with pesticides. As a result, they may have some insect damage, which is expected since these plants are safe for pollinators.

All proceeds will support the Adirondack Pollinator Project, a project of AdkAction in partnership with Lake Placid Land ConservancyThe Wild Center, and Paul Smith’s College. 

Plant Sale Dates: We will be accepting orders until May 31, 2019, or until we sell out, which may happen fast.

Plant Pick-Up Dates: You will be able to pick up your plants at the Wild Center in Tupper Lake on June 13th between 4 pm and 6 pm or on June 15th at Cook and Gardener Nursery between 11 am and 2 pm.  Sorry, no alternate pickup arrangements are available due to limited staff time.

Depending on growing conditions, we reserve the right to substitute similar plants or offer a refund at the time of pick-up to account for losses or other unforeseen issues.
