WHY NATIVE MINNESOTA PLANTS?

Native plants were here long before lawnmowers, sprinklers and garden chemicals. Once established, plants native to this region are low maintenance and do not require care typically associated with gardens. Native perennials build a strong, deep root system before focusing on the production of leaves, stems and flowers, resulting in plants that are sturdy and drought tolerant. Native plants are beautiful, and provide food and shelter for wildlife including butterflies, dragonflies, pollinators and birds.

MATCHING SPECIES TO LOCATIONS

It is important to match species requirements with the site features such as soil type, light conditions, moisture and drainage for the planting to be successful.

SITE PREPARATION

You can start now! Proper site preparation gives your plants a great head start. Removal of competitive weeds and grasses must be accomplished before planting begins. One option: cover the area with 10-15 layers of newspapers to block out sunlight. Saturate the newspaper with water to prevent it from blowing away, then apply a clean shredded mulch or compost. Later, after the newspaper has softened but is damp, punch holes in it and insert your new plants.

IMPORTANT NOTES ON PLANT SALE

Flats include 6-packs, and have been designed to cover about 30 to 45 square feet, depending on flat selected. Plants should be spaced 12-18 inches apart as most will spread out as they mature. A good rule of thumb: One plant per square foot. Species may be substituted if there is a crop failure.
