Going native

Once established, native plants require less water and fertilizers than non-natives, which means that harried home gardeners can take more time to enjoy their gardens instead of tending them. On April 10, MU’s Bradford Research and Extension Center is offering a perfect opportunity to find all the native plants you need for your home garden and support Missouri businesses at the same time.

At the annual Native Plant Sale from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 10, there will be four Missouri native plant and shrub vendors, many learning opportunities through informative booths and demonstrations, and a new conference center for educational seminars and crafts. Preceding the sale, there will also be bird watching tours available beginning at 7 a.m. with a reservation. Bradford Farm is located 6 miles east of Columbia on Rangeline Road. With questions, call 884-7945.
