Description

We are sold out of all pre-order seedlings for the 2018 Seedling Sale!

Thank you for your support of this year's native plant Seedling Sale. The seedlings this year have been tremendously popular and we have completely sold out of the pre-order seedling packages--that's more than 600 seedling packages!

Although we are not able to order more packages, we sometimes have extra individual seedlings for sale on the pickup days (April 20 and 21). If the seedlings you want are available, they will be sold for $2 a "stem" on a first-come, first-served basis. We sometimes have full packages available as well. If available, they will be sold for $17 (Shrub and Small Tree package) and $12 (Tree package), also on a first-come, first-served basis. We will accept cash or checks only on the day of the sale. The pick up begins at 9:00 am on Friday, April 20, at the Packard Center, 4022 Hummer Road, in Annandale. Arriving at or near starting time on Friday will give you the best selection.
