Nursery open house will benefit Audubon Society

By Staff | Apr 13, 2012

The Winston Gardens Native Plant Nursery has again pledged to donate 15 percent of the proceeds from its upcoming spring Open House Plant Sale to the Potomac Valley Audubon Society. The donation will be used to support the Society’s new Stauffer’s Marsh Nature Preserve, which is located in the Back Creek section of Berkeley County.

The Open House will be held the weekend of April 28 and 29, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day. Light refreshments will be served and a door prize will be offered.

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 spring it is offering 40 different species for sale. These range from popular favorites like Sugar Maples and Redbuds to hard-to-find species like Fringe Tree, Witch Hazel and Black Haw Viburnum.

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.
