You will never have to worry about pesticides harming the birds, butterflies bees and native pollinators in your gardens.
(Contrary to popular belief, you CAN grow a big beefy gorgeous plant without the use of chemicals, as the pictures of the nursery below prove.)
Our plants are grown here, CHEMICAL FREE, by division or seed collected from our own plants.
This is VERY important. Regardless of where you end up buying your plants...PLEASE ask your
salesperson how the plants have been grown! Most big box stores and garden centers are now selling plants that have been systemically treated with pesticides (Neonics) which will make birds sick and harm any butterfly, bee or native pollinator foolish enough to take a sip or a nibble. If the salesperson does not know how the plant was grown, walk away and find a nursery that does!
The nursery is open to visitors from 10am to 6pm, 7 days a week.
If you want to speak with me personally to help you with a design,
it is best to make an appointment.
Garden tours are also open for self-guided or guided by appointment.
Shade gardens are at their prime from the beginning of May through June.
Best viewing of Sun Gardens is Summer

Due to an extraordinary growth of the nursery,
I have decided to give charge of the Landscaping branch over to the crew,
so that I can focus my full attention to the Nursery & Gardens here.
It is still my crew doing the high-quality work that we have become known for.
I will be working closely with Jacquie & Ashley...
Consulting, designing their clients' gardens, and they will still be using WildThings plants.
Ashley Cross is the woman to contact for Landscaping appointments.
For those of you that wish to do the installation yourself,
We will still do a design (free of charge if using our plants)
Best to make an appointment with me to come out to the nursery,
with dimensions, hours of sunlight, and an idea of soil texture. (drainage).
Pictures are also helpful.

ORDERING EARLY FOR SPRING PICK-UP
This has become a very popular choice.
You may call/text/email your wish-list to me for Spring.
This way, you can have a better chance of getting the species you want,
as I do fill orders first, before filling the nursery tables.
(It also gives ME a better idea of what I need to pot up in quantity)
