May 10 plant sale at Andover Town Hall
The Andover Conservation Commission and the Merrimack County Conservation District (MCCD) will co-sponsor a public sale of plants, trees and shrubs from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, May 10. The sale will take place in tents located by the Andover Town Hall on Main Street. Plants, shrubs and trees will be offered at discount prices, and children will receive, on a first-come- first-served basis, either a bulb or plant to give to their mothers for Mothers Day (Sunday, May 11). All proceeds go to the MCCD to pay for the cost of the plants, trees and shrubs.
The MCCD will also be providing free instruction sheets for building bird houses, bat houses and homes for Mason bees. A demonstration tent for making the Mason bee homes will also focus on how to attract pollinators to residential gardens.
