Saturday, May 8th, 2021

9:00am – 12:00pm

Pickup at Green Mountain Orchards in Putney, VT

Join the WCNRCD for our annual plant sale this year at Green Mountain Orchards! We offer plants for their landscape value, conservation value, revegetation 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. If you have any questions concerning type of soil, water needs or care for the listed species contact the Conservation District at windhamcountynrcd@gmail.com or by phone at:  802-689-3024. Please note: due to the Covid-19 situation, email is checked more regularly than phone.


  • All nursery stock is bare root unless listed otherwise on the form. 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 in the order they arrive. Last year we sold out of our entire inventory prior to pick-up day, so we recommend you order as soon as possible.

Orders will be taken until April 23rd.  Pick-up of stock will be from 9:00-12:00 on Saturday, May 8th at Green Mountain Orchards in Putney, VT. 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.

  • Please note on your calendar the date and time of pickup. Saturday, May 8th from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
