Pop-Up Pollinator Plant Sale

Interested in creating or expanding a pollinator habitat garden? Fall is a great time to plant! Your new plants have the winter to establish roots and have a head start for the next growing season. Simply make sure they are well-watered before the cold weather sets in.

Minnesota Native Landscapes – one of the festival’s regular plant vendors – will be popping up at Lake Nokomis with their mobile truck with a wide range of pollinator habitat kits available for pre-order and a limited amount of single plants for sale.
