Native plant sale at Swan Lake, Saturday and Sunday

Native Plant Sale Saturday and Sunday, April 25 and 26, at Swan Lake Christmas Hill Nature Sanctuary.

The largest Native Plant Sale on Vancouver Island happens Saturday and Sunday, April 25 and 26, at Swan Lake Christmas Hill Nature Sanctuary.

More than 100 species of native plants are available for sale at the annual native plant and gardening event at Swan Lake Christmas from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. both days at 3873 Swan Lake R.

“Native plants are as attractive as many ornamental species and have the benefit of being suited to our climate,” says site manager Jay Rastogi. “They also provide valuable food and habitat to our native pollinators, birds and animals.”

Using native plants increases biodiversity and celebrates and deepens our local identity and connection to the natural world, she added.

Pre-orders for groups such as strata or municipal are available ($100 minimum), email or call 250-727-0653.
