The Pre-Order Process: How It Works
Pre-ordering plants for pick up is available to Grow Native members at the Advocate/Family level and above, allowing you to select the exact quantity of plants desired and reserving them in advance. In 2020, we are offering 80 species through pre-order. Your member contributions are essential to our ability to orchestrate this complex process, and we love being able to offer this service and thank you for your generous support!
Our 2020 Sale
Managing this year's sale has been, of course, complicated by the coronavirus crisis. We have been monitoring the public health guidelines throughout the winter and spring, as our plant sale planning begins in earnest in January. With the dedication of our two wonderful staff, our board of directors, and many additional volunteers, we are doing everything we can to meet this year's challenges and continue to run this sale— working hard to source as many species and plants as possible for all of you. We already know that we will have many more orders than we have ever had in previous years. Simultaneously, our suppliers face many challenges, and some species availability may be more limited than in prior years. We thus appreciate your patience and flexibility while we manage this greatly modified sale process. We are grateful to still be able to source over 3,000 native plants and help them find homes with you all over our region.
