Native Plant Sales
Plant Sale Information
Where and When: The CNPS Bristlecone Chapter holds native plant sales every year in the Bishop and Mammoth areas. The Bishop Plant Sale is usually held the weekend after the Millpond Festival in September at the White Mountain Research Station. In 2013, the plant sale will be held on Saturday, September 14, from 9-11:30 am.
Plants: A wonderful array of native plants are offered every year. We’ve been busy coaxing from seed dozens of brittlebush, various buckwheats, penstemons, Mojave aster, lupine and many more favorites!! See our sortable database of species that have been available at our plant sales for ideas of what to expect.
We had a great plant sale and there are still some plants left (click the link to see!) If you would like to buy some, contact Katie at firstname.lastname@example.org and set up a time to meet. If there are certain plants you would like you can arrange to have them set aside for you as well.
Prices: Plant prices are $2.00 or 3 for $5.00 for Super Cells, $5.00 for a small tree pot and $8.00 for gallon pots.
Proceeds from the annual native plant sales provide funding for our Mary DeDecker Botanical Grants. The grant program is a fitting way to remember Mary DeDecker’s many contributions to the people and plants of the Eastern Sierra.
Growing Natives Information:
See our Planting Guide for tips on getting your native garden growing.
Also check the main CNPS site for information on growing native plants, including the benefits of native plant gardening, getting started, weed and pest management and more.
Attention buyers of plants:
If you have any of the black pots from your plants (which by now should be transplanted in your garden), please bring them to the plant sale, or the next meeting and give them to our plant sale coordinator, Katie Quinlan, for reuse. You may also drop them off at the Eastern Sierra Land Trust office on 176 Home Street - there is a garbage can behind the picket fence with a CNPS label on it where we will pick them up for reuse. Thank you!
