Even though it is still snowing, it’s not too early to plan for spring. This year, Knox-Lincoln Soil & Water Conservation District has its largest offering ever: 167 varieties, 36 of them brand new – 59 bareroot fruit trees and berries; 65 bareroot trees and shrubs (including some hard-to-find natives); 43 organically grown, potted perennials and herbs, with a few more still to be added.
Knox-Lincoln Soil & Water Conservation District strives to provide the community with high-quality bareroot plants and potted perennials at a reasonable price and at the same time raise funds for education programs. The trees, shrubs, and perennials are mostly native and always noninvasive. Knox-Lincoln Soil & Water Conservation District is proud that its selections are excellent for home orchards and gardens, windbreaks, soil stabilization, and shoreline buffers – as well as ornamental plantings. And, they are great choices for pollinators, beneficial insects, and other wildlife.
