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

Elodea, Potamogeton



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!

Note from the

Nursery Director

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.
