It’s still planting time and that means our spring sale is almost here!

The sale will open for ordering online April 4th at 6pm, through the link posted here. We will have a special emphasis on plants that provide resources for pollinators, birds and other creatures, including narrow-leaf milkweed for monarch butterflies. In addition to live plants, we will also be selling our popular line of locally-sourced native seeds. All of these species offer great choices for increasing the biodiversity in your yard. We’ll also have a variety of shrubs to plant before the weather warms up. Adequate rain this winter means the plants will thrive once planted.
