News: 2018 Seedling Sale
Thursday, Jan 18, 2018
2018 Seedling Sale
     It’s that time of year again where the plant world seems to almost be asleep during the cold, snowy months of winter.  Don’t let that stop you from looking ahead to the warmth and revival of spring.  Now is the perfect time to start planning out your upcoming “landscaping list” for spring. Did you know that a properly landscaped yard can increase your property value by 10 percent!   Not only does it increase your property value, but it can also help with lowering electric bills.  During the summer months, you can decrease your electric bill by planting hardwoods and conifers that are popular shade trees.  These lower the temperature in the surrounding area and thus your electric bill as well.  During the winter months, these same trees can act as a windbreak, thus cutting winds cannot creep into the nooks and crannies in your home.  Planting native seedlings is not only beneficial economically, it is very important for the surrounding wildlife.  Many wildlife species rely on the food crops produced by many native species.  Without the seeds, nuts, and berries from the native species, many organisms would not be able to survive, especially during the winter.  Many of the berries, seeds, and nuts produced by these plants are also enjoyed by people too. 
 
     Our 2018 seedling sale brings a line-up of new plants, bundle sizes, and new products.  New this year are: Black elderberry, lowbrush blueberry bundle, douglas fir, bald cypress, flowering dogwood, american hazelnut, red oak, river birch, red mulberry, butterfly weed plugs, aromatic aster plugs and poly-lumber suet bird feeders.  
 
 The deadline for orders and pre-payment is Friday, March 30, 2018.  We thank you for all your support.  
 
Seedling sale pick-up will take place in the Munnell Run Farm "Pig Barn" on Tuesday, April 17th from 8:30 AM to 5:30 PM.  The overstock sale will occur the same day starting at noon.
