Just in time for holiday gift giving, the Bancroft Area Stewardship Council is pleased to announce the launch of its 2023 Tree and Shrub Program. The online store is now open at www.bancroftstewardship.ca.
There are some new species this year for those who would like to try something different. Butternut, bitternut hickory and Bebb’s willow are three that we have never offered before. Two favourite bundles are back, the Algonquin bundle, with species that have always been important to Indigneous peoples, and the Shoreline bundle, a perfect mix for restoring a more natural waterfront to your property.
Pollinators are so important to include in our gardens and so the Butterfly Garden Kit is also back for another year. This kit gives you the perfect mix of five different species that will attract all important butterflies and bees to your yard.
Spring may seem a long way off, but once you place your order you can start planning your planting for next spring! Orders will be ready for pick-up during the first week of May.
