Bring back the organic matter in your soil. Start with a soil test to diagnose the health of your yard and we’ll go from there. Microbes? Organic matter? We’ve got it.
We install natural designs created in partnership with the Rain Campaign to stop watershed that leads to flooding and water quality problems.
Choose from a full spectrum of Iowa natives. Our nursery houses more than 200 species of grasses, shrubs and wildflowers that will create a stunning prairie-scape on your property.
Join the movement to re-establish native habitats for our insects, pollinators, birds, reptiles, and wildlife.
The Blooming Prairie
Blooming Prairie Nursery, a family-run business, was created 12 years ago to produce and sell seed, plants, shrubs and trees of native varieties to rebuild our ecosystem. Attracting wildlife to every homeowner’s backyard was our original goal. Through years of research, development, a school of hard knocks or being “beaten by the stupid stick,” we have developed a sustainable line of eco-friendly products along with a proven system to restore Iowa’s ecosystem above ground and below.
BUILD YOUR OWN
sustainable native priarie
Choose from pre-selected gardens or build your own prairie with flats of 38" cone cells, gallon potted plants or bare root plants.
We have special garden packages available that help facilitate the attraction of several different types of birds, butterflies and other incredibly entertaining critters! These small gardens come in a flat of 38 of various host plants. All of these options can be customized based on height and color preferences. This is a great option for those who want native prairie plantings, but don’t know where to start. Plants range from $3.75 to $9.75 for flowers and grasses.
