  1. Hi Richard,

    I notice that the link to the Galt Museum Native Prairie Plants Garden and seed sales doesn’t work on the Hort Society website. That’s because the Galt Museum has a new website and our content has been rearranged! Causing lots of confusion! The new location for the Native Prairie Plants Garden (with admittedly outdated material which will be fixed shortly) is http://galtmuseum.com/museum-grounds. Thanks!
