King Conservation District holds bareroot plant sale
January 29, 2013
Residents can stock up on native shrubs and trees as the King Conservation District holds a bareroot plant sale.
The taxpayer-funded district offers the plants for conservation purposes, such as wildlife habitat, windbreaks, hedgerows, reforestation and stream enhancement.
The plant stock is bareroot, meaning the shrubs and trees do not come in pots or burlap bags.
The next sale is scheduled for March 1-2, but organizers suggest residents interested in purchasing plants order early online. The online order deadline is Feb. 8, and residents can browse the available plants at the district website, www.kingcd.org/pro_native.htm.
Residents then pick them up at the district office, 1107 S.W. Grady Way, Renton.
