Want to get immediate availabilities on our best crops?

More Locally Grown Native Species!

 

We are experimenting with more native wildflowers and challenging woodland ephemerals grown from a diversity of Southern Ontario seed sources. No volume discounts are offered at this time until we can reliably provide sufficient numbers. Despite their stature, some require 2–4 years in production to fill a 4" / 10 cm pot. We welcome feedback on their use, landscape success and retail demand. 

Matching Right Plant to Right Site

 

The right plant in the right place will perform its best. This involves understanding the site conditions and sometimes more than just light and moisture. We can give you advice on challenging site conditions, just give us a call. Or keep a copy of our suggested landscape solutions nearby when designing.

 

We also have a handy spacing chart that can be used to calculate the number of plants needed for a given area manually or with CAD software, expected to give 80-90% coverage in two growing seasons.
