A Wing Haven Plant sale is really for the birds! Our Nursery Shop is bursting at the seams with unique plants, tools, and gifts for the garden for your garden and home. We have an incredible selection of plants—unusual shrubs, antique roses, herbs, perennials, native plants, groundcovers, bulbs, and more. Plus our volunteers can give you plenty of advice on how to make them flourish. All proceeds benefit Wing Haven, a Charlotte treasure since 1927.

 

Questions about your garden? Problem areas? The Mecklenburg Extension Master Gardeners will be on hand each day of the sale to answer all your questions.

 

The Mecklenburg Audubon Society started by Mrs. Clarkson, will have Bird-Friendly Birds & Beans coffee for sale at Wing Haven’s upcoming Spring Plant Sale.

By buying a bag (or two!) of B & B coffee, you will help protect the winter habitat of many songbirds, have some exceptionally good tasting coffee, and…benefit Wing Haven!
