Seedling ordering information

Orders are now closed for the 2024 season. We understand everyone is excited to start planting, but please hold off on calling the Nursery so we can stay focused on lifting and sorting seedlings. We will contact you when your order is ready, so please check your email.

We will fill orders from south to north – mimicking the typical thaw progression across the state.

Thank you for your patience!

Delivery and pick-up

Seedlings will be available for pick up or delivery in the spring of 2024 - likely in late April or May, once the ground has thawed. We will keep you updated via email as the season progresses and will post the lifting schedule once we begin. Southern counties in the state will receive their seedlings first to mimic the natural thaw that occurs.

Delivery options:

  • Pick up your seedlings free at the Nursery in Akeley, MN.
  • Ship directly to you for $45 per 1,000 seedlings.
