REGION – Now is the time to be thinking about what you’d like to plant this spring!

Each spring, the Crawford-Roscommon Conservation District provides residents the opportunity to purchase tree seedlings, native wildflower bulbs/roots, berry bushes and wildflower seed.

Conifers (evergreens) are sold in seedling and transplant form. A seedling has been in a seedbed for two years; whereas, a transplant is grown as a seedling, then transplanted to a larger bed for another year or two to develop thicker and stronger root systems.
