2020 Plant Sale

The 2020 Plant Sale will be held on Saturday, May 9 at Green Mountain Orchards in Putney.

The WCNRCD annual plant sale offers plants for their landscape value, conservation value, re-vegetation value, and food value, for ourselves, bird species and other wildlife. The best way to maximize your planting success is to match the right plant with the correct soil and light conditions. Your purchases through the plant sale support the Conservation District’s efforts throughout Windham County.

The 2020 Plant Sale Order Form is now available! Download the document here:


  • All nursery stock is bare root. Trees and shrub stock are delivered in a dormant state; this prevents transport shock. Plants may appear brown and leafless but once planted will quickly produce green leaves and shoots. Bare root stock plants should be planted immediately.
  • If there is a plant species that is not listed and you would like to obtain it, call the office early so every effort can be made to secure that variety for you.
  • Herbaceous Perennials die down to ground level each autumn/winter and start to re-grow the following spring. They normally increase in size each year, because they will be re-starting life with a larger root system left over from the previous year. Most perennials are low maintenance. They require little more than basic care which includes fertilizing, mulching and a general overall grooming from time to time.
  • Plant supplies are limited and we will fill orders as they come in.

The District will not be responsible for stock once it is removed from the pick-up site and reserves the right to refund money for stock that becomes unavailable. No refunds will be made on any orders not picked up by the designated date.

If you are interested in receiving the plant sale order form in the mail, please call or email the office and give us your name and mailing address.  Paper order forms will be mailed out in late February or March.
