We are excited to be growing plants in preparation for the 2021 Ithaca Spring Plant sale! We plan to continue to sell locally and offer a drop-off delivery service in mid-May, 2021. Our tentative list is posted, and will be finalized in March. Happy gardening!

About Flutterby Plantarium

Hello! My name is Alina. Last year, I participated in girl scouts and 4H and they talk a lot about community and how to improve our world. So, I thought I’d like to try to help by encouraging people to plant flowers that produce nectar, pollen, and seeds to support the health and nutrition of our local pollinators, butterflies, and birds.

By supporting bees, we help to improve our food production and yields. The health of our overall butterfly and hummingbird population has been affected by a loss of habitat and wild swings in weather. We can help the butterflies survive by offering them host plants and high nectar producing plants to support their journey. Also, supplying high energy seeds for migrating songbirds and finches, will help them on their long journey.

All funds raised will go toward buying seeds and supplies for next year’s plant sale, and any profit will be put towards raising money for college. Hope you find something you fall in love with at this year’s Ithaca Spring Plant Sale!
