Plant sale is over for the year… See you next spring!

Our garden plants arrived on May 4th and May 8th for a nice selection before Mayfest – to help you get digging in the Minnesota dirt!

We get our stock from Glacial Ridge Growers – family-owned greenhouses in Glenwood, MN. Using environmentally sustainable production methods, their plants are grown without neonicotinoids, GMOs, or other harmful chemicals.

New this year at our sale: Pollinator Paks – four collections each with a variety of plants specific to attracting bees, hummingbirds, monarchs, or other butterflies. Created in collaboration with the Minnesota State Horticultural Society, Glacial Ridge donates some of the proceeds back to them.

You can find a pdf list of the annuals, perennials, vegetables, strawberries, herbs and baskets we've ordered here – subject to availability.

The co-op also has a nice collection of Seed Savers Exchange seeds just waiting in their little packets for your pots & plots! This nonprofit seed bank in Decorah, IA, is on a mission to preserve garden diversity. We highly recommend the SSE Resources page with tips for novice & expert gardeners alike. Also, seeds are priced as a Member Deal if you're a co-op member!

Read more about Seed Saver Exchange in Naomi Jackson's article about their amazing variety of heirloom varieties, and her experiences in saving seeds. Find her piece on page 3 of the spring issue of the 928 News.
