Native Plant Kit – Buckthorn Replacement Kit


Eliminating buckthorn can be quite a challenge. Buckthorn seeds left in the soil can germinate and grow long after the plants have been removed. The Buckthorn Replacement Kit is a collection of plants you can strategically use to help out- compete future buckthorn seedlings and reduce the chances of the infestation returning. Recommended for a 40-60 square foot area.

This selection of native plants comes as one flat, containing 36 plugs of 6 different species, all ready to plant. Each plant is grown in a 2″ x 2.25″ x 3.25″ cell. Each kit will include 4 grasses and 2 forb species (species mix will depend on availability).

  • Self-heal
  • Calico Aster
  • Bottlebrush Grass
  • Canada Wild-Rye
  • Long-beaked Sedge
  • Nodding Fescue

*Plant kit species included will depend on availability. Selected species will be suitable and representative of the native species in our area
