Ordering for our native wildflower and grasses sale is now closed. Please pickup your order, or shop our "browse & buy" where there will be additional plants  available to purchase on 
May 22, 12pm to 4pm
Berrien County Youth Fairgrounds
9122 US Hwy 31, Berrien Springs
Use the office gate entrance across from United Federal Credit Union

Native plants are adapted to this region’s soils and climate, and require little maintenance once established. They are a valuable food source for many insects and birds that many ornamental plants cannot provide. Native plants have strong, extensive root systems that help rainwater infiltrate deep into the soil and protect the soil from erosion.

Wildflowers and grasses can also enhance the beauty of any landscape.

Tree Sale Pic 2

Browse and buy our spring sale for trees, shrubs, strawberry plants and other products. We do this annual sale as a way to increase reforestation in Berrien County and as a fundraiser for our organization. 

All products must be picked up, we do not ship. Pickup dates if you placed an order, and the browse and buy sale are are:

Friday April 26th from 10am to 6pm and Saturday April 27th from 9am to 1pm

Location is the Berrien County Youth Fairgrounds, 9122 US Hwy 31, Berrien Springs, MI 49103.  Use Office gate across from United Federal Credit Union. Do not use the Shawnee Road Entrance, use the US Hwy 31 Entrance.

We get our seedlings from only trusted and well respected quality nurseries. We do our best to bundle and handle them in a manner to protect them so they will grow well for you. We are not a “big box” store. Once the seedlings leave here we cannot guarantee their survivability. Many factors go into a tree surviving: soil type, moisture, not getting watered enough, drought, disease, pests, deer and other critters, planted wrong (roots cannot grow),below freezing temperatures , lawnmowers, etc.!

Thank you for planting trees!
