This workshop will be presented by Vern Stephens of Designs by Nature and is intended to help those new and experienced in gardening have a better understanding of native plants and their place in our yards. The workshop will include site preparation, design, maintenance and the role of native plants in your garden. Bring pictures of your garden, your ideas and any questions you may have about plants and landscaping to get the most out of this event!
The Clinton Conservation District holds a Spring tree sale and Fall native plant sale. Spring brochures are available in March for the April sale. Fall brochures are available in September for the October sale.
Tree sales have been a traditional activity and fund raiser for conservation districts. Planting trees ties back to the original soil conservation mission.
Each spring and fall we sell a variety of conservation seedlings for erosion control, wildlife habitat, pollinators, reforestation, windbreaks, and many other conservation purposes.
In the Fall, we sell a large selection of native plants along with a limited selections of conifer seedlings.
While most of the species we sell are available every year, we try to stock new items as well. We also sell a selection of fertilizer tabs, and Plantskydd animal repellent. We also have a tree planter and a no-till drill for planting native grasses available to rent.
