Sales Programs

GCCD Conservation Plant Sale

Each spring Grafton County Conservation District (GCCD) offers a variety of flowers, shrubs, fruit and berries attractive to landowners and wildlife during our annual Conservation Plant Sale.  You can place your order by February 24, and pick up your plants Friday, April 26 or Saturday, April 27, 2024.  Why not start thinking about spring today?

Many of the plants we offer are native to New Hampshire.  Plants native to our area are adapted to growing in our region’s soils and climate, requiring less maintenance (such as watering and fertilizing) than many introduced plants.  Most of our plants are bare-root, meaning they were harvested at the plant nursery when the plants were dormant and will ready for planting when you pick them up. Bareroot plants are affordable, hardy, have well-developed roots, and are easy to handle, transport and plant.

Our 2024 Conservation Plant Sale is over, check back for our 2025 Plant Sale information in January 2025.  Please contact us or call if you would like to be added to our mailing list.
