Green thumbs and novice gardeners are being invited out to Prairie Flora’s annual native prairie plant sale this weekend.

Today through Sunday, the Living Prairie Museum at 2795 Ness Avenue will host the event.

“A garden full of prairie plants can have blooms in April, even in a cold spring like this year, and they’ll have blooms into October,” said organizer Aimee McDonald. “Prairie grasses and wildflower seedheads bring texture and colour to your yard all year long.”

Prairie Flora focuses on quality plants that are resilient and adapt well to Manitoba’s environmental conditions. Plants are tended with all-natural pest management and fertilizer. Eco-Network will also be available to discuss organic lawn care.

The sale runs today from 3-6 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
