Free Garden Design

May 7 from 11 am – 2 pm

Roy Diblik, co-owner of Northwind, has created designs of perennial combinations that will attract beneficial insects to your landscape including many species of bees, moths and butterflies. Each design will give care and maintenance instructions for the perennials as well as explain the insects that will be attracted to these plants. Bring a picture or sketch of a 100 sq. foot area in your yard along with information about your specific site, i.e. soil and light conditions and Roy will give you a free design for a pollinator-friendly garden. If you purchase all of the perennials in your design, you will receive a 20% discount (the discount is only valid on May 7). Approximately 35 – 40 perennials will fill 100 sq. feet area.
