Results from Citizens for Conservation's 18th annual Native Plant, Shrub and Tree sale are in, and plant sale chairman Ginger Underwood has declared it a banner year.
In a message to shoppers, volunteers sponsors and in-kind contributors, Underwood thanked all involved for their support, enthusiasm, care for the environment and "all the insects, reptiles, birds and critters, including humans, that will benefit from all the new native plants that have gone into the ground."
In addition to record numbers of local gardeners, shoppers came from Palos, the North Shore, Chicago and points in-between. There was special emphasis this year on the sale of milkweed plants in order to help save the dwindling monarch butterfly population.
Gardeners are urged to plan ahead for CFC's Native Shrub and Tree Sale in the fall.
