Native Plant sales are around the corner!

Conservation district native plant sales are just around the corner. These are some of the best sources of native trees and understory plants around. Stock is sold bare-root, which means you’ll need to be familiar with planting that. Check out Forterra’s plant installation video (bare-roots are specifically mentioned in slide 9).

Planting season is winding down! New plants should ideally be in the ground before dry weather hits, especially if watering is limited. Bare root plants need to be picked up from the sale and planted promptly.

Pre-order deadlines for the conservation district sales are mostly over by now, but you can still take advantage of the walk-up sale.
