Wild Ones Root River Chapter’s Native Plant Sale Preorder Time – Orders Due March 21st!

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

It’s time to make your selections from the Wild Ones Root River Chapter’s annual native plant presale. See instructions below:
Tired of all the up and down weather weirdness? Cheer up — the plant sale advance order form is here! We have many new offerings and old favorites to tempt you, plus almost all of our plants are now available in quart pots so they’re extra big and more resistant to transplant shock. Go crazy — these prices are amazing and it’s for a good cause! 🙂
The plant sale committee worked extra hard this year to bring you a great selection of plants. Support your local wildlife –by supporting your local Wild Ones chapter!
Here’s what to do:
1. Email Chris (c-russin@northwestern.edu) for a copy of the order form. The order form is in 2 versions: if you want to fill it out on your computer, use the Excel spreadsheet. The formulas at the bottom will automatically calculate your total, any discount, etc. If you’d rather print it out and fill it in by hand, there’s a pdf version as well without formulas so you can fill out the totals yourself (see copy of order form below).
2. The perennials we get in small pots are $4. The ones in large pots (about 1 quart size) are $6. Each species is only available in 1 size – if the quantity cell is white, it’s available in that size. Trees and shrubs are $20—$25. You have to order at least 16 plants, but if you order more than 32 plants, you get a 10% discount. How sweet is that? Fill out the order form, and don’t forget your name and contact info at the top! Send the order form and a check payable to Root River Wild Ones to:
Chris Russin 21515 81st ST. Bristol, WI 53104
Orders must be received by Monday, March 21 and payment must accompany your order.
3. Special orders: If you aren’t content with the offerings here and are interested in a wider selection of trees and shrubs, here’s the link to the website where we order them:
http://www.possibilityplace.com/
You can click on the link in the upper right corner and download a copy of their catalog. The ones we requested have come in (!!!) so I’ll bring those to the meeting on Saturday. You can order anything they have (although FYI they’re out of quite a few things this year), just let me know what you want and I can tell you if they have it in stock and how much it will be. If you are interested in perennials that you don’t see on this form, you can ask me about those as well – almost all of our plants are available in 12-plant flats, so if you’re willing to order 12 of something (or go in together with someone else) we can order it for you if we can get it. How’s that for full service? 🙂 If you want to special order something, just add it at the bottom of your form with a note.
4. If we have any problems or questions with your order, we’ll contact you. Pickup of plants will be at the plant sale, Saturday, June 4th, 9-3pm at Gateway Technical College, 3520 30th Avenue, Kenosha.
4. Questions? Contact Chris at c-russin@northwestern.edu or (608) 408-7082.
Be Wild!

    Last year I bought an Allegheny Serviceberry for $25 at your sale. I am hoping to purchase two more this year (2016.) but cannot bring up any information re: the choice of trees for 2016. Are you offering this Servicebery at the sale this year? Is it possible to order it ahead of time?

    Thanks for your consideration and for this opportunity to buy quality native plants at such good prices.

      Hi Vivian – thank you for your comment, unfortunately our supplier did not have any Serviceberry shrubs in stock this year. We were disappointed to find this out, hopefully next year they will be back in stock and we can offer them again at the plant sale. Thank you very much for supporting the Wild Ones Root River Chapter and we hope to see you at the plant sale again!
