Conservation District Tree and Plant Sale
With the warm, springlike weather we have all been thinking ahead to gardens and yards. The Washtenaw County Conservation District’s Spring Plant Sale is coming to a close so now is the perfect time to get your order in.
Trees and shrubs for such conservation uses as: windbreaks, screens, wildlife habitat, soil erosion and reforestation; prairie grass, wildflower and daylily plants for naturalizing yards and landscapes, and native plant garden kits for butterflies, pollinator insects and rain gardens can still be ordered through the Washtenaw County Conservation District Spring Conservation Plants Sale.
Orders for tree and shrub seedlings will be accepted through March 23rd, while supplies last. Distribution of tree seedlings and other conservation materials will take place on April 22 and 23 at the Washtenaw Farm Council Grounds, 5055 Ann Arbor-Saline Road, between Ann Arbor and Saline.
Orders for prairie grass and wildflower plants, daylilies, as well as butterfly, pollinator and rain garden kits will be accepted through April 29, 2016. Distribution of native plants is scheduled for May 13th at the Conservation District office.
