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.

Ready to Go Now

Artemisia ludoviciana

Silver Wormwood  / White sagebrush

A spreading perennial that thrives in dry locations. Their open form displays best when interplanted with other meadow species, including grasses. Will grow in part shade, but can become floppy. Rich or overly moist soil can also lead to floppy stems, although they will happily rely on support of sturdier neighbours, without being so weighty as to push them over. Height varies between 18” and 48”, depending on moisture levels (the wetter, the taller) and the heights of surrounding plants.
These are happy to wander through the garden, adding a splash of silvery white as an accent to the green foliage and bright flowers of neighbouring plants.
They dry beautifully and can be gathered in the fall, even after a hard frost, for including in autumn and winter arrangements and decorations.
