Rice County SWCD Selling Tree Seedlings and Native Plants
Again this year, the Rice County Soil and Water Conservation District is selling tree seedlings. The seedlings are available in packets of 25 for $39. There are bare root conifers, potted conifers, deciduous bare root and bare root shrubs. In addition, the tree supplies you might need are also available. The orders should be here and available for pickup in mid-April.
The Rice County SWCD also has native plants for sale. The rain garden mix is specially designed to provide plants that can tolerate flooding conditions in your rain garden. The butterfly mix is designed to attract butterflies to your home garden. Each mix includes 48 plants of 12 species and costs $60. Plant these mixes and I am sure you will be surprised at the many plants and flowers growing in your garden!
