Our popular garden kits are ready for pre-order!
Hopefully you’re aware of the benefits of native plants and their value to pollinators already. But if your yard is lacking in those areas, it can feel daunting to start from scratch. That’s why we’ve put together two ready-to-plant pollinator garden kits, one for sunny spots and one for shady spots, to help you turn a patch of yard into a beautiful, sustainable wildlife habitat.
Both kits and trays are made up of landscape plugs, an economical short-cut to establishing larger-scale plantings that are usually harder to come by outside of the landscape trade. They’re much cheaper than full-sized plants and nearly will reach full size nearly as fast. Each kit will fill a 25-square-foot (5′ by 5′) and comes with a planting guide and sample layouts.
So yup, that’s a whole garden’s worth of plants in that box in the photo.
Our plants have been selected for their beauty, their wildlife value, and their suitability to low-maintenance plantings in South Jersey. In other words, we chose these plants because they are native to this region – they’ve evolved to grow well here without much fuss (no green thumb required). The kits also offer a succession of bloom times and plant forms so your garden will show off new beautiful elements all throughout the growing season.
You’ll need to order by 11:59 p.m. on Thursday May 2nd, and plants can be picked up in Collingswood on Saturday, May 11th – Mother’s Day weekend.
If you’ve been thinking about starting a pollinator garden or replacing part of your lawn with hardy native perennials, now’s a great time to do it. For those of you interested in Collingswood Community Habitat Project or the National Wildlife Federation Backyard Habitat Project, our kits would get you one or two steps closer to certification. Oh, and as your garden grows, also consider adding your property to the Million Pollinator Garden Challenge map.
