Pollinator Plant Kits for Sale!
Lexington Living Landscapes is collaborating with the Lexington Conservation Office on a sale of pollinator plants that will benefit our native insects. The plant kits will include four plant species selected based on bloom time and their attractiveness to pollinators. They are:
Zizia aurea (golden Alexanders),
Monarda fistulosa (wild bergamot),
Pycnanthemum tenuifolium (narrow-leaved mountain-mint),
Solidago caesia (blue-stemmed goldenrod).
The plants are grown at a certified organic native perennial farm in New Hampshire and come in quart size bio-degradable pots. You can purchase a kit of 12 plants (three plants of each species) for $60, or a set of 4 individual plants (one plant per species) for $22. Due to limited availability, there is a limit of three kits and three sets per household.
Order kits through the Town website. First set up a town MyRec account here.
Pickup Saturday, May 15 9am-12pm at the DPW building (201 Bedford St).
