2021 Pollinator Kits

We regret that all of our pollinator kits are currently sold out, but if you would like to place your name on the waiting list, please do so here.

In the box below,  please download the info sheet, which describes each of our three kits. If you have a relatively small area to plant, check out our Pollinators' Feast plant collection in the box below.

About Our Pollinator Kits

Download our info sheet here

Our kits are tailored for three types of growing conditions:

Kit 1: Full sun, average to dry soil; well suited to open sites with drier conditions

Kit 2: Part sun, moist to dry soil; adaptable to a wide range of conditions including woodland edges

Kit 3: Full to part sun, moist to occasionally wet soil; ideal for pond shores and other damp sites

Each kit contains 50 wildflowers (7 species), packaged in a single tray and selected to produce both a cascade of bloom throughout the season and habitat for specific pollinators at all stages of their life cycles. 

Contained in 5-inch deep plug cells, these plants should mature to fill a space approximately 10 x 12 feet or larger, depending on what is growing there already and the desired planting density.

  • The species in each kit are listed in our info sheet.
  • Our plug kits deliver faster results than planting from seed, because you start with well-developed plants with deep, healthy root systems that establish quickly. 
  • We feed our plants with organic fertilizer and use biological controls rather than chemicals as our first line of defense against pests. We use no systemic pesticides, such as neonicotinoids.
  • Price: Each kit packs super value at $195. Members save 10 percent!
  • Supplies are limited. Order now for pick-up in mid-June! 

How to Order

  • Call the Garden Shop at Garden in the Woods, 508-877-7630 x3601, or email gardennatives@NativePlantTrust.org  
  • Please specify kit type, quantity, and pickup location: Garden in the Woods (Framingham, MA) or Nasami Farm (Whately, MA) 
  • Orders must be paid in full to reserve kits. Please do not send credit card information in an email. We will email you a quote that may be securely paid online.

Choose from Our Plant Collections

Even small landscapes have varied conditions and planting needs. That's why we created our eight native plant collections.

Each of our collections contains eight plants and will be available for pick-up at Garden in the Woods or Nasami Farm. Herbaceous plants come in 2-quart or 1-gallon containers. (Exception: Some plants in the Spring Ephemerals Collection come in 3-inch pots.) Shrubs and vines are in 2-gallon containers. Order your collection in winter or spring for pick up at Garden in the Woods or Nasami Farm during the growing season.

To order, contact the Garden Shop with payment information, specifying the collection names, quantity, and pick-up location: 508-877-7630 x3601. Or email your order to gardennatives@NativePlantTrust.org

About Our Plants

All the plants we sell are grown without pesticides, so they will support the birds and bees that keep the rest of life humming.

During the growing season, you'll find a stunning selection of robust native plants for sale in our Garden Shops, at Garden in the Woods and Nasami Farm. We offer a carefully curated selection of plants native to New England, as well as some species and varieties from across the eastern U.S. that appear in the living collections at Garden in the Woods. Our assortment shifts a bit with the season, so you’ll find plants in stock when they are in bloom. 

We also offer curated plant collections and kits for particular purposes and conditions (see the drop-down boxes on this page). You can plan your garden anytime with our lists of plants and prices, as well as the Garden Plant Finder. You can browse our plants and a variety of useful books, tools, garden ornaments, and home accessories at our Garden Shops. 

Many of our plants start from seed that our staff and volunteers harvest sustainably in the wild throughout the region. In line with Native Plant Trust’s mission to support biologically diverse landscapes, we aim to increase the proportion of seed-grown plants available for sale, so that you can expect an ever-increasing selection of genetically diverse New England natives that will enhance climate-change resilience and create wildlife habitat. Seed collection and germination rates determine availability, and we have increased our seed collecting effort. Meanwhile, we offer selections and varieties that remain truest to the species type.
