Meet the Neighbors!

A big order for a Partridge Creek Farm project in Ishpeming
That's a lot of plants!

The spring growing rush is slowing down, to be replaced by all the spring order pickups! So far we have delivered hundreds of quart pots and nearly a dozen garden kits. It has been so much fun meeting some of you as we pass the plants on to their new homes. I wanted to take a moment to tell you about our weekend special offer, some new things in our store, and let you know how the rest of you can get to know us.

First, we are at the Skandia Farmers Market on most Wednesdays from 4 to 7 pm. We weren't initially planning to be market sellers, but a friend invited us, it's really close to our house, and it was lots of fun! If you have time on a Wednesday evening, come say hi and pick up a plant or two. It's at 9271 US Highway 41 S, Skandia, MI 49885, which is just south of Beaver Grove and about 12 minutes south of Marquette. There are lots of other vendors, too: vegetable plant starts, flowers, veggies, meat, syrup, baskets, carvings, baked goods, honey, and of course, Michigan UP native plants.

The first ever Yooper Garden Kits containing plants from all UP seed for the Conservation District plant sale

Next, we will be at the Marquette County Conservation District plant sale pickup on June 12. If you ordered plants from them, stop by and say hi while picking up your order. If you missed buying a 38-cell Yooper Garden Kit from the District, we have the 32-plant version available on our website in both sun and shade versions.

Holiday Weekend Sale! $5 off the brand new Yooper kit this weekend only, through Tuesday. Enter code "Yooper" or "YooperShade" at checkout.

We may do a plant yard sale in June outside our greenhouse. I need family buy-in for this one, so stay tuned. I'll let you know in June if its a go.

As for social media, you may have noticed we are no longer on Facebook. Our account was hacked (no customer info was compromised that we know of) and Facebook disabled it. There seems to be no way to talk to a human at that monolith, so until we can create a new site, we are at odds with the big blue book. In the meantime, follow us on Twitter (a FB competitor!) @UP_NativePlants.

As always, you can stay in touch through our website! If you haven't visited in a while, check it out. I am continuously trying to improve it. It's been brought to my attention that the functionality of the mobile version needs some tweaking - know that I will fix it shortly. In the meantime, check out the new offerings in our store - Virgin's Bower Clematis, Culver's Root, and the aforementioned Yooper garden kits. Again, for sun, enter "Yooper" at checkout, and for shade "YooperShade". Link to them here: Sun & Shade. Hope to meet you soon!
