2024 Plant Sale

This year’s plant sale offers a selection of native perennials that bloom from early to late summer and provide nectar to native bees, butterflies, and other insects.

New this year! LLCT will not be taking pre-orders. All purchases must be made in-person at the sale, and plants will be available on a first come, first served basis. LLCT will accept cash, check, card, or Venmo at the sale.

May 18th at Lincoln Station, 145 Lincoln Rd, Lincoln MA
10:00-11:00 A.M. Members Only*
11:00-1:00 P.M. General Public

*Current LLCT members are invited to the early bird hour. LLCT members participating in the sale can also choose a free groundcover plant to add to their order, as a gift from us to you. While supplies last. All are welcome to join or renew their membership with LLCT when they check out at the sale. LLCT memberships start at $35/year.

Plants are sourced from Bagley Pond Perennials, a NH based nursery that grows their plants from seed sourced on their farm. All plants are native to the region. Perennials will be available for $7 (quart sized plants). These plants retail for $10.50 each. LLCT works hard to ensure our prices are as accessible as possible to our community. Membership contributions to LLCT support the plant sale and our planting efforts on conservation land.

LLCT is pleased to offer a selection of groundcover plants this year that support pollinating insects and other wildlife species. These new offerings are in coordination with the Lincoln Common Ground (LCG) No Mow May effort. LCG volunteers will be at the plant sale to answer questions and make recommendations about using groundcovers as lawn replacements and garden understory plants.

Why plant native? Plants that are native to Massachusetts repopulated the area after the last ice age (between 22,000-14,000 years ago). These plants have had thousands of years to co-evolve and develop relationships with animals. By planting native plants, we support those ecosystem-level relationships and bolster local biodiversity. Not only does this support wildlife, it also improves local resilience to the impacts of climate change.

All plants will be sold individually this year. Volunteers will be at the plant sale to answer questions and assist customers with their selection. Plants will be organized by bloom time and labelled with sun/soil preferences, bloom color, and height. You can choose plants that will thrive best in your site’s unique conditions.

In general, LLCT recommends selecting species from each bloom time (early, mid, and late summer) to ensure a garden that offers nectar throughout the growing season. If your garden space and budget allow, LLCT recommends planting at least 3 plants per species you select.

LLCT’s Pollinator Action Plan is informed by the research of Dr. Rob Gegear. LLCT continues to recommend Dr. Gegear’s plant list as a resource for pollen and nectar plants that support at-risk long-tongued bees.

LLCT has plenty of Pollinator Pathway Signs, which will be available at the sale.
