Where can I find free or low cost milkweeds and nectar plants?
Here is more information on finding funding for your monarch project. There is also information about finding milkweeds native to your area on our website, www.plantmilkweed.org. You may also apply for Free Milkweeds for Restoration Projects through Monarch Watch's Milkweed Market.
Don't forget to check with friends, neighbors, or your local garden club to see if anyone has seeds from native milkweeds or other wildflowers that they have collected and would be willing to share. Some forbs (flowering plants) may also be easy to split or transplant if someone you know is looking to get rid of them.
