This year (2019) marks the 25th anniversary of Cardno’s Native Plant
Nursery. Exciting changes are happening at the nursery.
As a part of our commitment to increase seed production, we have
invested in building a brand-new 10,000 sq. ft. seed processing
facility. The quality of our seed has increased due to the use of
more effective weed control measures and seed cleaning tools.
Our deep water aquatic production continues to expand as we offer
species that are part of the
genera. We are planning to bring more submerged aquatic species
to market in the future.
Cardno’s native seed mixes are being used for Monarch butterfly
and pollinator habitat projects on roadsides, energy corridors, solar
farms, filter strips, and soil stabilization projects across the country.
We can customize native seed mixes to meet your project’s needs.
We also produce native seed packets, which are a great way to
showcase your commitment to the environment. These packets are
great handouts for tradeshows and conferences. Contact us about
customizing options for your project or business needs.
We are excited about our new Monarch Prairie Kits developed
especially for schools to equip teachers in the classroom. These
kits contain lesson plans and all materials needed for students
to plant an outdoor lab at school. These Monarch Prairie Kits not
only benefit Monarchs and other pollinators but can lead students
to future careers in the natural resources field. Potential funding
sources are available. Contact us for more information on this new
It has been a great pleasure to work on hundreds of unique
projects with and learn from many passionate and talented people
in the industry over the last 25 years. I would like to thank our
loyal customers, vendors, and incredible nursery team. It’s been a
privilege to work with you. Here’s to the next 25 years!

Restoring a native landscape can be a challenging, time-consuming task. But by
understanding the different environments and the plant species that inhabit them,
you can recreate these ecosystems.
