Description

If you’ve ever tried to completely remove established buckthorn colonies, you know it can be quite challenging. Buckthorn seeds left in the soil can germinate and grow
long after the plants have been removed. The Buckthorn Replacement Kit is a collection of plants you can strategically use to help out-compete future buckthorn seedlings and
reduce the chances of the infestation returning.

Consider planting in deep woods areas recently cleared of buckthorn plants.

This kit includes 36 live plants.  Six plants of each species listed below.  We recommend planting in a 40-60 square foot area.  

The Buckthorn Replacement Kit will pair well with our Shade Garden Kit and Tall Prairie Grass Kit.
