Now through the end of February!
Native plants offer many benefits from improving soil health to keeping our waterways clean. The long root systems of native plants extend deep within the soil, creating a system of channels that allows water to infiltrate into the soil. In addition, these deep root systems can also remove nutrients and other pollutants from the soil and water. They require little or no fertilizer because they thrive in local soil conditions so not only will you save money on chemical and fertilizer applications, but you can help improve the health of our lakes and streams by keeping extra nutrients and pollutants out of our waterways.
We have 7 types of kits available each with 10 different species of native plants. Each kit contains 50 individual plants and costs $140.00 (that’s less than $3.00 a plant!)

The deadline to order your native plant kit for 2020 is February 28th.
In Ohio, we have over 1000 native trees, shrubs, perennials, vines and grasses that are important to our pollinators, birds, insects, and all wildlife…including humans. They are part of an intricate, balanced web, that helps to filter and clean our drinking water, remove contaminants from the air we breathe, cool our planet, and feed the bees that pollinate most of our food crops. At the very core of this elaborate system, are our native plants.
Please support Ohio’s native plant initiative by incorporating native plants into your yards and gardens and encouraging your neighbors to plant natives also. You will be rewarded when the birds and butterflies light up your life by visiting your neighborhood.
