Native Prairie Seed & Live Plant Kits

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 can be planted in your back yard, or used to restore the soil in large, worn out crop fields or pastures.

 

We offer a variety of different prairie seed mixes  and native plant kits consisting solely of species native to Minnesota. Seed mixes are sold alongside our native tree sale in April, while native plant kits are available later in the year, with pickup around May.
