You've heard us say it thousands of times. Plant native plants! They are good for soaking up stormwater. They are adapted to our region. They don't need fertilized or watered (once established).
So you go to the store to purchase native plants and where are they? Often nowhere to be found. It's frustrating. We get it!
Cuyahoga SWCD now sells native plant kits so you don't have to go anywhere, except to your computer and put in an order. We also sell native seeds the same way.
This year (and hopefully all years) we will be selling seven native plant kits. Kits contain 50 plant plugs ( 2 1/4" x 5") and are $140/each.

It is really that easy to go native.
