For the past several years GLC has been selling milkweed and pollinator plants to provide habitat for the declining Monarch butterflies. This year we are joining the Conservation@Home movement to help promote and create wildlife-friendly yards and offering WILDFLOWER GARDEN KITS that includes a selection of five native wildflowers to plant in your yard.
You don’t need a dedicated wildflower garden or large area to be successful in attracting and feeding a variety of songbirds, butterflies, bees and other beneficial wildlife. You can create spaces for environmentally-friendly plants around your house or in among your favorite annuals. These plants are seasonal, and many are tall, so they can fill in early spring bare spots, or add height and color to the back of your annual garden. Unlike your annuals, they will bloom again year after year and help contribute to the ecological health of our region. All of these native plants need full or partial sun. Each plant will be 2 - 3 inched tall and ready to plant. Instructions will be included.
There are 5 available Garden Kits and Rain Gardens available (See photos under the"2022 NATIVE PLANT SALE" TAB):
