Before you order:
Thank you for choosing to order plants from your local conservation district! Before you finalize you order, please remember that plants have different preferences for sun and soil. While the district does not guarantee survival of plants once they have been picked up, making sure that you pick the right species for your site can help ensure the health and survival of your new plant. If you are having trouble finding the right species for your property, or don't know what conditions are on your property, please contact the conservation district for assistance.
