Shop for Fall Native Plants
to Support Baltimore Woods
this September!

Spring is when we tend to think about gardening, but fall can be an equally great time for planting! Expanding native habitat goes beyond nature preserves. Every home gardener can help provide essential habitat for birds, bees and butterflies by planting native plants and avoiding exotic ornamentals, and planting native plants in the fall will give your plants a head start in the spring.

In addition to our annual spring native plant sale, Baltimore Woods is offering a new opportunity for our friends to embrace the fall planting season since warm soil and cooler air means great root development for new plants! This September, through the generosity of two local businesses, gardeners can select beautiful fall native plants and benefit The Woods with each purchase. Please mark your calendar for this special sale!
