Cape Cod's Nature Place

The Cape Cod Museum of Natural History

Plant Sale Donations

Once again, we will hold our annual plant sale during the first week of June.  We think this is one of the best plant sales on Cape Cod. Museum volunteers purchase plugs from two Native Plant wholesalers and grow them up to quart size for the sale. In addition, area gardeners divide and donate their time-tested favorites. Do you have plants to share? Sales help to support the Museum’s programs.

Find new plants to brighten up your garden, attract pollinators, or add to your wildflower meadow at this popular yearly sale. You’ll find a good selection of North American native perennials for sun and shade, including groundcovers, grasses and pollen magnets. Many of these are native to Massachusetts and help to create habitat for birds and other wildlife. There will also be a variety of donated garden favorites. Experienced gardeners will be available to answer questions and assist with plant selections.

Proceeds benefit the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History.
