Grassland Plant by Number Flat

Would you like to plant native plants to support local habitat but you aren’t sure where to start? Our Plant by Number Native Plant Flats are a great way to get started with native plants!

These 38 plug flats come in six different “designs” to choose from and are only $75/each!  These are available by pre-order only (* Will be available to order online from April 1, 2017 – April 30, 2017 *).  Orders are to be picked up during the Native Plant Sale.

Butterfly * Grassland * Pollinator
Rain * Shade * Wildflower

Each design comes with its own planting instructions.  You simply match up numbers from the flat to a 4′ x 10′ planting space and you will have a blooming garden the next year (flats are small one-year old plants about 1″ in diameter and most will not bloom the year of planting, but will the following year).

You will also not want to miss our workshop with Vern Stephens, from Designs by Nature:  Planting Native Gardens to Beautify Your Landscape and to Promote Backyard Habitat.  This popular workshop is free and often fills up, so make sure you register early to secure a spot!
