What does it take to provide the largest, most robust native plugs available in the market? Our process:

  • Start with tested, viable seed from local origins
  • We use one of the largest plug sizes available (36 per tray)
  • Soil- Soilless media allows plants to thrive in a small cell until planted.
  • Greenhouse conditions- All plants are started climate controlled greenhouses and hand transplanted into plug trays individually.
  • Staff experience- Friendly and helpful staff with over 25 years experience growing native plants.
  • Species diversity, origin, and plant quality are important to us and our customers.
  • We track the county of origin for all the plants we grow and can custom grow specific origins.
