We are excited to again offer a variety of native plants this spring. Native plants provide both food and habitat for birds, butterflies, pollinators and other wildlife. They are an important link to the local ecosystem and play such a vital role in supporting our local wildlife. 

Native plants are now available for purchase at both WBU Barrie and WBU Newmarket. Below is a list of this years offerings. This year we are offering a whopping 28 species of native plants and among them 6 keystone species and 5 butterfly host plants! Shop early to avoid disappointment, for some species we have a very limited number of plants. For details regarding the species available, bloom colours, growing conditions and the wildlife they attract please click on the banner above or on the button below.
