Live Native Garden Kits Available for Spring
May 14, 2018
Native wildflowers and grasses are a wonderful way to beautify your landscape while providing excellent habitat for song birds, pollinators and all sorts of other wildlife. A prairie garden can be planted right in your back yard. The Scott Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) in Jordan is selling native garden kits of live plants so you can easily plant a native garden. All of the species in the garden kits are native to Minnesota, and once established require no watering, fertilizer or regular mowing. Each kit includes at least six different species of live native plants. There are six different kits to choose from including Prairie Garden, Short Pollinator, and two raingarden kits, so there is a kit to match your needs. Kits are available for pre-order now through May 25th at scottswcdtrees.com, or by calling the Scott SWCD office. Customers will pick up their pre-paid advance orders in early June at the Scott County Fairgrounds. If you have questions about which native garden kit is the one for you, call the Scott SWCD office at 952-492-5425.
