May 2-3 plant sale to benefit Audubon Society

By Staff | Apr 27, 2015

The Winston Gardens Native Plant Nursery is having a final native plant sale the weekend of May 2-3, and donating a portion of the proceeds to the Potomac Valley Audubon Society. The sale will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day.

Plant species available will include Sugar Maples, Bottlebrush Buckeye, Summersweet, Cockspur Hawthorn, Winterberry Holly, Northern Bayberry, Viburnums (including Arrowwood, Possum Haw, and Mapleleaf) and White, Red and other oaks. These are all native species, adapted to our climate and soils. 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 for the past 15 years, it has specialized in trees and shrubs that are native to this region.

Since the spring of 2011, the Winstons have donated 15 percent of the proceeds of their annual spring and fall plant sales to PVAS, to help with the development of the Society’s new Stauffer’s Marsh Nature Preserve. These donations have totaled more than $1,200.

They will donate the same percentage from this final sale to the same project.
