Nursery open house to benefit Audubon
The Winston Gardens Native Plant Nursery has again pledged to donate 15 percent of the proceeds from its upcoming fall 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 Sept. 29 and 30, 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 fall it is offering more than 30 different species for sale. These range from popular favorites like Sugar Maples to hard-to-find species that are usually not available through commercial nurseries.
