Spring is finally here, and it’s time to prepare your garden for the season! The HeartLands Conservancy Spring Native Plant Sale & Order Pick-Up, will be April 27, 2024 from noon to 3:00 pm CST.  Online pre-ordering opens Friday, March 22 at 9:00 am and close on Wednesday, April 10 at 5:00 pm.

This year we collaborated with Laura Schaefer of Little Sky Wildflowers to carefully select a collection of native plants that will enhance any landscape. Whether you’re looking to attract more pollinators, add some specimen plants, or simply beautify your garden, there is a wide range of options to choose from. If you need some inspiration for your landscape, Laura has also provided some landscape design ideas for the plants offered in the sale.  Visit the Native Plant Sale Page to download the designs.

Not only do native plants provide visual appeal, but they also play a crucial role in maintaining the health of our ecosystem. By planting native species, you’ll help to support local wildlife and provide a habitat for pollinators, birds, and other beneficial insects.

To make the most of your shopping experience, be sure to download the Online Spring Native Plant Sale Brochure. It’s packed with all the information you need to choose the right plants for your garden, including information on light and water requirements, plant size, and more.

The last day to place your pre-order is Wednesday, April 10th at 5:00 pm CST, so don’t wait! You’ll pick up your order on Saturday, April 27th from noon – 3:00 pm CST at the Swansea Clinton Hills Conservation Park Pavilion, 1524 Clinton Hills Parkway, Swansea, IL. There will be additional plants for sale on the the 27th, but selection  may be limited; so, we encourage pre-orders!)
