Description

A garden kit is a collection of plants pre-selected to make gardening goals easy. They can be used as a quick way to start gardening native without having to research everything under the sun. This kit contains 38 of the showiest Michigan native plants selected for color and texture all season and into the winter.  As is true of all native flowers, these plants are also beneficial to bees, butterflies, other pollinators, and birds.

The Wildflower Garden Kit is designed for average garden soil and full to part sun. It will contain 2 to 5 of each species selected. This economical kit includes 38 plugs that fill 38 square feet at 1-foot spacing – a 4’x9.5′ bed; or up to 86 square feet at 1.5 sq. ft. spacing – a 6’x14′ bed.
