BEFORE YOU VISIT: My 'nursery' is my home in a quiet neighborhood, but new this May I am partnering with Asbury Gardens, an organic vegetable seedling grower in Hamilton and will be selling out of her Bay Road (1A) location until July 31st I will be working the nursery stand alone, so please be patient if there's a crowd. Please park along her driveway by the PARK HERE signs. If you know what you want you can always place an order via email to pick up in Ipswich through September, or come and browse in Hamilton and get advice. I will have new species every week, the hardier plants earlier in the spring, and the milkweeds and more tender seedlings from late May on.  Below is a planned availability, you can see up-to-date species and inventory and links to ID pages click here. Please contact me if there's a specific species, size or number you need. 


NO NEONICS OR OTHER CHEMICALS ARE EVER USED. 

A little bit about my 'nursery': I am a backyard grower, I don't have a giant nursery yard, staff or store at my home. I started out only growing butterflyweed and swamp milkweed, and over the years, by popular demand, I now grow nearly 50 species of native plants and milkweeds. Most of what I grow are propagated from seeds or mature plants from my own property. What I can't collect onsite I order as organic seeds from native nurseries. Sometimes I have 50 of a species, sometimes I have 2. I grow what I love and what I see pollinators actively using, and of course milkweed. LOTS of milkweed! Water, sunshine and compost are the only things used on my plants. I never, ever, use chemicals, organic or conventional. Even organic insecticides can kill beneficial insects and pollinators.
