Native & Xeric Plant Sale
The Plateau Sciences Society will be conducting its eighteenth Annual Native & Xeric Plant Sale on Saturday, May 20 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The location of the Plant Sale is the Holiday Nursery, 1214 E. Aztec Ave., which is co-hosting this event. A large selection of plants (perennials, shrubs, vines and small trees) which are native to this area, or can survive in a hot, dry or low-water environment, have been specifically ordered for this occasion. These plants will be concentrated in the area immediately adjacent to the front gate of the nursery and members of the Plateau Sciences Society will be available to assist the customer regarding the selection of plants.
The Society will also be sponsoring a one-hour workshop on Xeriscaping, from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. Xeriscaping is a complicated-sounding word for a very wise and simple concept. In a nutshell, xeriscaping is water-efficient landscaping that’s appropriate to the natural environment. Here in northern New Mexico the goal of xericscaping is to create a visually attractive landscape that uses plants selected for their water efficiency. The workshop is free and open to the public.
