The Online Plant Nursery is now Open for September

After closing the store for the spring, the remaining seedlings were grown out for the fall sale (or planted into my own gardens 😊)
Some were moved into larger sized trays and kept in the urban yard, in wood frames with netting to keep squirrels from uprooting them.  Others were planted out into my rural gardens for the summer.  

With the cooler weather now arriving, it is time for them to move to their forever homes. 

Photos of the seedlings at their current size have been added to the listings of the available species.

While these will require initial care, like any newly planted perennials or plants that are dug and relocated, unlike the tiny plugs I offer in the spring sale these will settle in fairly quickly with little care beyond watering for the first few weeks and during any extended dry spells next summer. 

These are not sold in pots. Plants grown in trays will be wrapped in paper, like the seedlings were this spring. Plants that have spent the summer in the soil will be lifted and packed together into the boxes or the produce containers I’ve been hoarding through the summer. They will all need to be planted right away.

Plants are all $4.00 each, including HST. 

Minimum $20 / 5 plant order. 

I’ll be out to the rural gardens on the weekend and once most weeks, so pickups will be Sunday evenings, Mondays and, on weeks that it doesn’t rain on Wednesday, Thursday through the day and evening. Pickups are in Vanier, but can also be arranged for Perth.  

All pickups are by appointment only

Available quantities vary, from as few as 5 of a species to as many as 40. I'll track order quantities and remove any that sell out from your order before sending you an invoice.

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.
