How We Grow Our Plants for Pollinators and the Ecosystem
- We provide healthy, vigorous native plants, grown by horticulturists. Many of the species are rarely offered by other nurseries and are difficult to find in cultivation.
- We are a retail nursery, specializing in species native to Pennsylvania and the Mid-Atlantic eco-region.
- Our inventory includes straight-species (wild-type) and cultivated varieties. All plants are nursery-propagated. We do not collect from the wild. We use various propagation methods, and prioritize seed-grown plants to encourage genetic diversity.
- We typically have over 250 species of flowering perennials, grasses, sedges, ferns, aquatics and bog plants, vines, shrubs and trees. Click here for our most recent availability.
- We offer perennial kits suited to your specific needs: Native Plant Starter Kits
- At times we offer plugs and liners, but we are primarily a container nursery.
- Our plants are in containers, with a small selection of B&B trees and shrubs. Perennials sizes range from a pint to three gallon. Trees and shrubs are in pots up to 15 gallons in size.
- We grow as many plants from seed as we can to ensure genetic diversity. Growing plants from seed can be a lengthy process, and can take up to 3 years to produce a plant ready-to-sell. Read more about the value of genetic diversity HERE.
- We also use other propagation methods, such as cuttings and division, to propagate certain plants.
Right Plant, Right Place
- Plants succeed when planted in the appropriate site. Every species has different needs.
- We are unable to guarantee the survival of plants in your landscape. We do guarantee that our plants are true to name, healthy, and nursery propagated. Right Plant, Right Place
