Plant supplies are limited for this plant sale. Once plants SELL OUT, the SALE WILL CLOSE! If we do not sell out, the plant sale will close on August 30th, 2021. We recommend ordering early to avoid missing out.
Rain gardens help reduce sewer overflows and water pollution by absorbing stormwater runoff from hard surfaces into the ground naturally. Since 2006, the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District (MMSD) and Agrecol Native Seed and Plant Nursery have offered a rain garden plant sale to customers within MMSD’s service area. Plants are provided at a reduced price; up to a 50% discount compared to retail prices.
To order, visit the online rain garden plant store.
Plants are sold in bundles of 4; each plant's container is 2.5" x 2.5" x 3.5 " (length x width x height/depth); one bundle of 4 plants costs $10.00 unless otherwise noted.
Who can order: Any private property owner, local non-profit group, or municipality can purchase plants. Plants cannot be purchased for resale. If you are unsure of your status or have other questions, please submit your request on the contact us form.
In addition, to the plant sale, MMSD is offering FREE recorded rain garden webinars with gardening expert, Melinda Myers, and a recorded workshop where you can learn about rain gardens, plant selection, and plant care.
