These participating nurseries throughout New England offer discounts to Native Plant Trust members. Most of the nurseries listed below offer a 10% discount with the presentation of a valid Native Plant Trust membership card.

Wherever you shop, we encourage you to choose native plants of known provenance and confirm that what you plant in your garden is not invasive where you live.

Woodland Gardens Beyond Spring

Let's face it, woodland and other shade-heavy gardens peak in the early spring, when ephemerals cover the ground, shrubs and small trees bloom, and wildflowers show off yellows, blues, pinks, and whites. How can we extend beauty and interest in these gardens throughout the rest of the growing season? From her years of experience practicing native plant horticulture at Garden in the Woods, one of horticulturists provides insight into the successional staging of plants for colors, textures, nectar sources, and oomph into summer and fall.

Strategies For Invasive Plants Management

Invasive plants continue to be one of the main threats to the ecological integrity of natural communities and to populations of rare plants. Ecological Programs Coordinator Bud Sechler examines different strategies to combat invasive plants, drawing on invasive plant management experiences with Native Plant Trust, Massachusetts Invasive Plant Advisory Group, and the Sudbury-Assabet-Concord watershed Cooperative Invasive Species Management Area.

Growing Pollinator-Friendly Plants From Seed

Learn how to grow the top New England plants for pollinators from seed. The fates of native plants and pollinators are interwoven; both are essential to the environment. Growing from seed is an affordable solution for creating pollinator habitat in a home gardener's yard. This class covers all information needed to raise these pollinator powerhouses.

Diversify Your Lawn

Who says lawns need to be monocultures or only made of grasses? Enrich the traditional lawn with complementary plants that bloom at different times and add intrigue. Learn how to identify the plants that already grow in lawn as "weeds," and to incorporate new plants that create a rich, wildlife-friendly tapestry.

Ferns: From The Wild Into The Garden

Ferns are an important addition to the garden. They provide unusual form, texture and color, and benefits to wildlife. This webinar offers an overview of native ferns that are appropriate for the home garden. We briefly discuss fern structure and growth, and then forge into the native ferns and how to use them in your landscape.

Ecological Gardening

Wondering when to cut back perennials and how long into autumn perennials, trees, and shrubs can be planted or pruned? Want to know about the most wildlife-friendly approach? One of our horticulturists explains how to transition a garden into winter dormancy while balancing winter and spring preparation, beauty, and wildlife value.

Asteraceae: Eupatorium

The genus Eupatorium, commonly known as thoroughworts, is found throughout much of New England in a variety of upland and wetland habitats. It has recently undergone reclassifications at the genus and species level, which often rely on micromorphological characteristics. This webinar will help you understand the rationale for splitting the genus and provide you with the vocabulary necessary for species identification. Abundant close-up and habitat-level photographs delineate the features of the new genera.
