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.

Asclepias incarnata

Pink Swamp Milkweed

This member of the milkweed family adapts easily and elegantly to garden cultivation. They will grow to between 3’ and 5’ tall, depending on available moisture. Best in full sun, they bloom in July in the Ottawa area. Loved by butterflies and other pollinators, this milkweed tends to stay in a single location, without the tendency to wander around and visit every corner of the garden that got their more adventurous relative, Asclepias syriaca banished to the Ontario ‘Noxious Weeds’ list for far too long.
