The Summit Soil & Water Conservation District is now accepting orders for the tree and shrub seedlings, as a part of an annual program that the District has been offering for more than 50 years. As in the past, bulk evergreen seedlings including Colorado Blue Spruce, Scotch Pine, Douglas Fir, and white pine will be offered. In addition, bulk deciduous trees including Persimmon and Pawpaw and a variety of hardwood tree and shrub packets, consisting of native or naturalized plants suited to northeast Ohio’s soil and climate conditions will be available. For specific information and to place your order refer to the order form.
Two types of wildflower packets will also be offered including the Northeast Annual and Perennial Wildflower Mix and the Bird and Butterfly Seed Mix. Both are 1 oz. packets that will cover approximately 250 square feet.
Also available from the Summit SWCD are the 55 gallon rain barrels. Each barrel will come ready to install with a spigot and overflow pipe. All you need to provide is your own downspout diverter. The cost for the rainbarrel is $80.00. A linking barrel for extra storage is available for $50.00.
To order your plant materials and/or rainbarrel, please see the order form, fill it out and return to the Summit SWCD Office along with your payment.
