NEW! Pre-orders are open for our Spring Plant Sale! Our plant sale partnership with Katie Ballantine (Member #90) continues with some changes and some new items.

Katie offers varieties of herbs, vegetables, tomatoes, an assortment of strawberries, native annual and perennial flowers, and more.  She also has 6-plant “pollinator packs,” a way to get a great selection without having to buy the plants individually. And this year, Katie also is offering some new 6-Pak Plant Collections!

Something to dream about during this round of bitter cold. See photos and descriptions of all plants on the order form. Choose your pickup date.
