Fall 2020 – A Great Time for Planting Natives

If you’re looking to add some native plants to your outdoor space, this Fall will be a great time to do this. With cooler temps around the corner, September and October provide plants with just the right conditions that enables them to endure transplant stress well, while also giving time for them to start getting established in their new homes before the cold winter months set it. Planting in the Fall also gives these plants a jump start for next year so they’re ready to help create more habitat for bees, birds, butterflies, and other pollinators!

We are excited to be able to provide an assortment of native wildflowers and grasses for customers this Fall at the Olathe Farmers Market – Stagecoach Park location and through the Deep Roots KC Native Plant Sale. For more information on dates and details, please click on the links above. For a list of plants we’ll have available, please click the link below.

Despite all the changes that 2020 has brought us, there is one thing that hasn’t changed… the important role native plants play in creating habitat for wildlife. If you’re interested in learning more about native plants, and how you can create more habitat in your outdoor spaces, please check out the Plant It Native online conference, hosted by Deep Roots KC, on September 16th-18th. Some great speakers/sessions lined up… with one of our favorites… Doug Tallamy!!!

Let us know if you have any questions… we’d love to help!
