Sale proceeds to benefit Audubon

By Staff | Sep 23, 2011

The Winston Gardens Native Plant Nursery will donate 15 percent of the proceeds from its upcoming fall Open House to the Potomac Valley Audubon Society.

The donation will be used to support the society’s nature preserves.

The Open House will be held the weekend of Oct. 1 and 2, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day.

The nursery is located in northeastern Berkeley County, at 1121 Hollida Lane, one mile off Swan Pond Road.

Operated by noted area landscape designer Virginia Winston and her husband Eldon, it specializes in trees and shrubs that are native to this region.

This fall it is offering more 40 different species for sale. These range from popular favorites like Sugar Maples and Canadian Hemlock to hard-to-find species like Hornbeam, Spicebush and Red and Bottlebrush Buckeye.

Prices range from $25 to $35. Plants are one to five feet high.

During the open house, light refreshments will be served and a door prize will be offered.

For directions and a full list of the plants available, go to the nursery’s website at www.winstongardens.com or call the Winstons at 304-267-6924.

The Potomac Valley Audubon Society is a United Way of the Eastern Panhandle partner agency and a member of the Combined Federal Campaign.
