EVERYWHERE: Look for your county’s upcoming spring native shrub and tree seedling sales. These young plants are offered to homeowners at an irresistible price.

MARYLAND: Marylanders Plant Trees was launched in 2009 to encourage citizens and organizations to partner with the State to plant new trees. Today, citizens can still take advantage of our coupon program to receive $25 off the purchase of a native tree at 86 participating nurseries across the State.

NEW JERSEY: The South Jersey Landscape Makeover Program is a unique program to provide homeowners, municipalities, and farmers with expert advice and financial assistance to create rain gardens and other “green infrastructure” projects that capture polluted stormwater and prevent it from entering our lakes, rivers, and bays. We’ll host a series of rain garden design workshops and offer free technical advice and funding for homeowners and municipalities. Farm owners will also be eligible for grants to implement stormwater best management practices. This program is for select municipalities in the Rancocas River, Hammonton, Salem, and Maurice-Cohansey River watersheds, but there may be opportunities in other municipalities depending on the project and location.

PENNSYLVANIA: Pennsylvania Game Commission’s Howard Nursery produces bare-root seedlings for wildlife food and cover on State Game Lands. The nursery has been producing and distributing 2 to 8 million seedlings annually for wildlife food and cover since 1954. All Pennsylvania landowners may purchase seedlings for wildlife food and cover, watershed protection, soil erosion control, and for reclamation of disturbed areas, such as surface mine site and utility right-of-ways.

VIRGINIA: Arlington County StormwaterWise Landscapes Program. Applications for 2020 will be accepted from February 1 – March 15. The StormwaterWise Landscapes Program provides funding for voluntary projects that will reduce stormwater runoff from your property. Stormwater carries pollutants such as oil, bacteria, dirt, and lawn chemicals to our local streams. Installing practices on your property that collect or slow stormwater — allowing it to soak into the ground — keeps pollutants out of streams.

VIRGINIA: Northern Virginia Soil and Water Conservation District’s Native Seedling Sale. This year’s seedling sale features small shrubs and trees which are hardy in small spaces and bear gorgeous flowers and fruits, and display beautiful colors. The fruits and flowers that these plants grow are important food sources to birds and pollinators, and are delicious treats for us! By planting these native species, you are directly contributing to the betterment of our environment. The plants in each package clean our water and air, prevent soil erosion, provide valuable habitat, and add beauty to your property. Orders for 2020 seedling packages opens February 4th.

VIRGINIA: Potowmac Chapter of the Virginia Native Plant Society First Wednesday Plant SalesPlant Sales are held on the First Wednesday of the month (June through October) at our propagation beds across the driveway behind the Horticulture Center at Green Spring Gardens in Alexandria, VA. Our knowledgeable Propagation Bed Volunteers are looking forward to visiting with you and helping you select the right plants for your environment.
