PLANTS

Our native plants are sold in two sizes:  7 per pack or 84 per tray.  We believe that our plant plug trays provide superior root growth and it's been our experience that the plant plugs will compete with & sometimes surpass the growth of the larger potted plants in the first growing season.  Read More...

Generally, plant orders are shipped from approximately April through October. We reserve the right to postpone shipment of any order during periods of extreme heat.  Feel free to leave a comment regarding specific questions or requests when you place your order.
