Spring is on the way and the 2023 Native Plant Sale is open for orders! This year's sale is similar to the past few; plants can be ordered ahead of time in 38-plug garden kits, each containing a variety of native species that grow well together in a specific niche. Have a wet spot in the yard? Try the Rain Garden kit and enjoy bright-red cardinal flowers and stunning swamp milkweed while soaking up some of that excess water. Looking to start a native meadow? The Grassland kit is the one for you. Want to do your part for the local pollinator population? The Pollinator kit contains a season-long assortment of beautiful blossoms beloved by bees. Click below to view the full selection of garden kits and associated species.
Orders will be accepted until May 19th, the sale itself will take place on June 2nd at the Leelanau Enterprise. Individual native plants will be available in quart-sized pots on the day of the sale on a first-come, first-served basis. Fill out the order form and send it to us or order online.
