Pollinator Plant Surprise Sampler:
5 Month “Subscription” Package
SOLD OUT FOR 2021
What is it?
Our “Pollinator Plant Surprise Sampler” is a new, fun offer from Edge of the Woods Native Plant Nursery! This 5-month “subscription package” will include 15 different pollinator-valuable plants from our choosing, shipped right to your door!
You will receive one surprise sampler package each month, for 5 months, each containing 3 surprise plants. Surprise packages are a wonderful introduction for new native plant enthusiasts, as well as a fun way to acquire more native plants for your own garden.
Each surprise sampler package contains 3 unique, pollinator-valuable native plant species for a total of 15 plants. Accompanying the plants are identification tags, printed information on each plant’s culture, as well as notes on pollinator and other wildlife value.
Most plants included are herbaceous perennials, cold hardy to at least USDA zone 5. Plant selection is prioritized with reference to the Penn State University Extension Pollinator Garden Certification Program.
Other species, including young woody plants, may be included depending on our current availability.
Plants included may serve pollinators in various ways such as nectar, larval host, special value to native bees, hummingbirds, etc. All plants included tolerate full sun to part shade.
We will include our most adaptable species, so they will have the best chance of success in varying garden conditions. Individual plants vary in size up to a one-gallon pot; though plants in pots larger than 4” will be bagged to reduce weight.
The plants selected are a complete surprise to you, the recipient! We cannot honor any special requests, additions or refunds. Please know we are choosing from our best crops and everyone will be receiving the same species in each shipment.
