LLCT is pleased to offer spring planting kits to our members! If you aren’t already an LLCT member, you can join now! These plants were chosen for their value to at-risk bumblebees and other pollinators. They offer important pollen and nectar resources throughout the growing season. All of these plant species will also be planted this spring and summer on Lincoln conservation land as part of the Pollinator Action Plan.
These plants are offered at a great price as a benefit to our membership! All plants this spring are sourced through Bigelow’s Nursery and Bagley Pond Perennials. They are all native, straight species and are pesticide-free. A small fee has been added to the wholesale prices to help us defray delivery costs and to support plantings on conservation land. Click here for a description of plants that are being offered this spring and here for suggested planting kits based on soil conditions.
Additionally, LLCT is teaming up with the Town Water Department/Water Commission and The Great American Rain Barrel Company (TGARBC) to offer wholesale rain barrels for purchase and pick up with your plant orders! These rain barrels are a great way to lower your water bill and keep your new plants hydrated. Click here for more information about the rain barrel program.
Pick up date for Plants AND Rain Barrels: Saturday May 22nd from 8-11 A.M. at the DPW site at 30 Lewis Street, Lincoln MA. More details provided closer to the date.
- Order from this shop page through April, or while supplies last.
- All plants are offered “a la carte”. When you order online, you will need to select each plant (and its quantity) separately to build your custom planting kit. Make sure to update your cart before navigating back to the shop to choose additional plants.
- Once you have added all the plants you’d like to your cart, you are ready to check out! Make sure to verify the species and quantities that you are ordering. Unlike last year, you will need to pay to complete your order. You will receive a confirmation email, and we will then be in touch closer to the pickup date, May 22nd in Lincoln, MA. If there are any problems with sourcing a plant, we will offer a substitution or a refund. Otherwise, all sales are final.
- Please note that inventory is limited for some plants. Once a plant has sold out, it will no longer be available for purchase. We are working to source additional plants for an early fall sale, so stay tuned for updates from LLCT this summer.
- Please note that there are several rain barrel options available. The unpainted rain barrels are marked and may be scratched. If you have a color preference, please choose a painted rain barrel. We also recommend purchasing a diverter if you plan to connect the rain barrel to your downspout. Please read the rain barrel diverter description to choose a diverter size.
