The Online Plant Nursery is now Closed for the Season

I Will be Holding a Second Sale in The Fall
The fall plants will be the seedlings that I’ve planted out in the large gardens I care for outside of Perth (not open to the public!) taking up some of the space that would otherwise be filled with vegetables. I’ll care for them over the summer and post an availability list and photos and then do a big dig when the weather cools. These will be field dug plants, tucked into temporary/re-used containers and they will need to be planted right away. This is old fashioned nursery practices, when planting was a seasonal undertaking and we worked to the weather. 
The fall plant pricing is something that I’ll work out over the summer based on time and any material inputs. 

In the meantime, I have made all of the plant listings from this spring's sale visible so that those who ordered plants can view their descriptions. Some of these same species will be included in the fall sale, depending on how well they do over the summer.

I expect to update this page with the fall availability in mid to late September.

For those who picked up seedlings this spring, their planting instructions can be found here.

Antennaria neglecta

Field pussytoes

These teensy tiny little plants like to spend their time high and dry in the warm sun -Much like the cats whose feet their clusters of flowers resemble.

Their foliage grows to only an inch or two in height, with their tiny, rounded white blooms reaching up on flowering stems growing to 6” to 8” in early spring, often reaching full bloom by mid May.

Grow in a very well drained location with plenty of sun. Very tolerant of shallow and poor soils, these will often form large patches in mowed lawns in Canadian Shield areas where the soil is shallow and prone to drying out in the summer.

Would likely do equally well in ‘hell-strip’ gardens along sidewalks and boulevards. Tolerant of mowing and light foot traffic.

Grown from seed collected from wild plants just west of Perth Ontario
