We are a small, family owned and operated, specialty nursery.
Our main focus is on North American Native Woodland Plants, as well as the Native Sun Loving/Prairie Plants.
(Also can't resist dabbling in variegates.)
Our plants are grown here by division, or seed collected from our own plants.
We sell our seeds at $3.00 a pack. (List available on request.)
Visitors are welcomed to tour the 2 1/2 acres of display gardens, and our propagation beds in the woods.
(A call ahead is necessary, as we do several Farmers' Markets a week, and are not always here to show you around.)
Each season that passes, we find ourselves putting more emphasis on growing the Native Plants.
The more we experience and read, scientific hard evidence is hard to argue. It is the right thing to do for the health of our planet and all it's wonderful creatures.
(And quite honestly....considering how I make my living...peddling plants,...If I'm not part of the solution...It's hard to deny that I'm part of the problem.)
It also merits mention, that the natives' have a strength and natural tendency to be able to withstand the crazy weather we all now have to live and garden with, while the hybrids and exotics waste away in the 40-50 degree temperature fluctuations and months of flooding followed by months of drought!
Anyone wishing to investigate further, here is a very well written/understandable article on the importance of using Native Plants.....
If you'd like to attempt a native garden, be it a Wildlife Garden, Hummingbird Garden or Backyard Habitat Garden....
We've worked closely for years with
Jesse would be happy to help you in custom designing/installing your special garden, with our plants.
