The Lucas Soil & Water Conservation District’s Annual Seedling Sale is currently under way.
One- to two-year-old seedlings are being offered at an affordable price to help landowners in establishing conservation practices such as windbreaks, wildlife habitats, and treed buffers. Trees may also be used for general landscaping. Conifers are available in packets of 25 trees and hardwoods and bushes are available in packets of five.
Also offered are one-ounce packages of native prairie seed mix that have been collected locally from the Oak Openings Region. Two mixes are available –a dry mix suited for sandy or well-drained soils and a moist mix for average to moist soils.
Forms are available by calling 419-893-1966 or by download from the website at www.co.lucas.oh.us/lswcd. The NRCS Plants Database (http://plants.usda.gov/) has helpful information on plants and trees.
