Native Plant Sale Store Opens at 8am on November 15
KCD’s Native Plant Sale online store will open at 8am on November 15 and Pick-Up Days will be March 2 and 3, 2024.
The Plant Sale Store is now available for previewing. It may occasionally be down for scheduled maintenance at times over the next few weeks, so please check back later if you cannot access the store.
The sale 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. A 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.
Stay tuned to the website, this newsletter and KCD social media for more details. Sign up for the Benefits and Beauty of Landscaping with Native Plants webinar and watch for new Native Plant Spotlights on our website and social media! We do no offer walk-up sales for plants during the pick-up days in March.
