2023 Plant Sale
Preorders for KCD’s 2023 Native Plant Sale will open on November 15. Plants will be distributed next March at the Tukwila Community Center.
We have moved the Online Plant Sale Store to a new platform this year. We hope that you will enjoy the new shopping experience.
The 2023 sale will be pre-orders only. All sales will be final. Thank you to everyone who came out last year, and we look forward to seeing you again this year!
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.
We do sell out of plants, so order early for the best deals and availability!
We are again doing scheduled pick-up day and time. This year, we are using SignUpGenius for scheduling pick-up day and time. We ask that you stick to your selected pick-up date and time so that customer lines and wait times will be minimized.
All orders must be picked up by 4pm on Sunday, March 5. If you cannot arrive during your pickup window, please let us know. If you do not pick up your order, we will be calling you.
