Our 2020 Sale
Thank you to everyone who made our 2020 sale a huge success, despite the tremendous challenges of running it in the covid-19 era. We filled 173 orders, double the number that we have ever assembled in past years, and distributed just over 4,000 plants in total—nearly as many as in 2019!
- Our best-selling plants included Asclepias incarnata (swamp milkweed), a perennial favorite, as well as our custom grown Antennaria neglecta (field pussytoes) and Solidago flexicaulis (zig-zag goldenrod).
- We were delighted to sell a much larger volume of shrubs and trees than in past pre-sales. Lindera benzoin (spicebush), Aronia melanocarpa (black chokeberry), and Sambucus canadensis (elderberry), were the most popular.
- This was the most labor intensive plant sale we have ever run, and we had to do it with a much smaller volunteer crew for safety reasons. We are so grateful to our tremendous team of 24 volunteers, who invested well over 500 hours of work into the program, both in advance planning and then during the full week we spent managing the delivery and distribution of the plants, amid temperatures that soared above 90 degrees.
- Sale participants traveled from as far away as Portland, Maine and Warwick, Rhode Island, and throughout Massachusetts, from Shelburne Falls to Hubbardston to Chatham.
