We've had a few nice days of spring like weather in the Quad Cities, but if you need another jolt of spring, you can now pre-order native Iowa plants in Davenport.

Native wildflowers, prairie grasses and bare-root tree seedlings are for sale from the Scott County Soil and Water Conservation District, 8370 Hillandale Road, Davenport, with orders accepted through March 25.

Money raised goes toward scholarships, educational programs and other community projects, according to a QC Times article.

The district is also selling Plantskydd, a rain-resistant animal repellent to help protect your vegetation from deer and rabbits. It is available as a liquid or powder in prices ranging from $13 to $60.

The tentative pickup day for flowers and grasses is Thursday, June 4, at the office. A postcard will be emailed/mailed with the exact pickup date and location.

All orders must include 7% tax, with checks payable to the Scott SWCD.
