Even though days are short and the weather’s lousy, spring will be here before you know it. Be prepared! Order your native shrubs and trees now through the Hood River Soil & Water Conservation District native plant sale.
Check out the variety of plants offered through the district’s annual conservation plant sale. These 1-2-year-old bare-root seedlings cost only $1.25-$2.50 each, but, as natives, they are hardy, acclimated to the region’s climate and easy to grow.
Native plants make excellent windbreaks, streamside buffers and neighborly fences. Choices range from creeping snowberry (new this year) to giant sequoias and include conifers, shrubs and deciduous trees.
Orders are being taken now for pick-up in Hood River on April 5 and 6. By sending in your check and completed order form now, you’ll ensure you get the varieties you want since orders are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
Order forms are available at www.hoodriverswcd.org or at the office, 3007 Experiment Station Drive, Hood River. Customers can pick up their pre-packaged orders in April; any plants remaining will be available for sale during pick-up days.
