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 through April 30, 2017  Orders will be ready for pick-up during our Native Plant Sale on May 20th .

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 or reach full growth the year of planting, but should the following year).

Here are pictures of a Pollinator flat planted in June 2016 with follow-up pictures from September 2016.
