Complimentary Milkweed Seeds

In celebration of Earth Day, April 22nd, we are giving out a complimentary pack of Milkweed seeds, while supplies last. This is an in store opportunity only.

We want to encourage everyone to incorporate milkweed into the their landscape, which benefits the declining population of Monarch butterflies.

What is happening to the Monarch population? The rapid depletion of the annual monarch population is a direct reflection, experts say, of the impact of humans on nature.  Monarchs must lay their eggs on the milkweed plant, which are gradually disappearing from orchards, meadows, and vacant lots where the plant once thrived but are now replaced by urban growth.

In addition, the increasing use of pesticides in rural areas and water shortages have also threatened monarch habitat.

Come by the store April 21st -23rd to receive your free packet of seeds to help the grow the Monarch population.
