WESTPORT - The Essex County Soil and Water Conservation District is now holding its annual seedling sale. Available is a large selection of bare-root tree and shrub seedlings and transplants for erosion control, wildlife habitat improvement, windbreaks and reforestation. Groundcovers and wildflower seed mixes can also be purchased
The tree and shrub seedlings and transplants are sold as bare-root stock. They are not potted, nor balled in burlap; such as you'd expect to buy from a commercial nursery. Six different wildflower seed mixtures are available. Blends can be purchased for sunny or shady areas and for attracting birds, butterflies and beneficial insects to your gardens.
Seedling packets and slow release fertilizer tablets are available this year. Order deadline is Thursday, March 19. Orders will be available to be picked up the last week of April in Westport.
To get an order form or more information, call 962-8225 weekdays, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, visit www.co.essex.ny.us, or go to the Cornell Cooperative Extension office at office at 3 Sisco St., second floor.
