Every season we snake our way across the landscape, looking for strong populations of native plants. Large, intact populations offer an opportunity to collect “foundation” seed (seed responsibly gathered from the wild). We offer this foundation seed seasonally, in addition to the native plants that we grow from these collections.

All plants, either bare root or potted, are grown from seed – never wild dug. We employ organic production methods in all of our growing operations and are transitioning away from the use of peat moss, using all remaining stocks by the end of 2022.


Cold Moist Stratification Basics

It’s time to stratify native plant species that require cold-moist conditions. Our preferred method is based on original guidance from our friend Ann Casper.
