Native Plants and CRP
In 1985 the Conservation Reserve Program was signed into existence and became the first and largest program of its kind. The CRP program pays farmers to set aside land for 10-15 years and they must plant and maintain the land with plants native to their states. The long-term goal of the program is to use sustainable methods to re-establish land to help fight against soil erosion, improve water quality, and reduce loss of wildlife habitat.
The table is the Mid-Contract Management (Plug Interplanting) Species Options available through Darby Creek Fields and Flowers.
We offer a variety of plants that bloom at different times. All Native plants purchased come in the form of one flat. One flat holds 32-48 plugs.
