Thanks to everyone who came out to the 2019 KCD Native Plant Sale. This year, we sold almost 70,000 native plants to improve habitat and beautify yards, farms, and gardens across King County. Nearly 1000 of your friends and neighbors came out to take charge of their landscapes and make them more resilient, require less water, and help wildife and pollinators. The 2020 Native Plant Sale will be in late February or early March with location TBD. Pre-ordering will open up November 1, 2019.

KCD offers a variety of native trees and shrubs for conservation purposes such as wildlife habitat, windbreaks, hedgerows, reforestation and stream enhancement. They also work great on home and garden projects. The majority of the plants offered are bareroot stock which means they do not come in pots or burlap bags, but are harvested from the field in winter when the plants are dormant and ready to be replanted. Bareroot plants are affordable, hardy, have well-developed roots, and are easy to handle, transport and plant. Order early for the best deals and availability. We do sell out of plants, so get yours today!
