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.

My 'nursery' is my home in a quiet neighborhood, but starting in May I am back partnering with Asbury Gardens, an organic vegetable seedling grower in Hamilton and will be selling out of her location. My hours vary as the season progresses but they will be kept up to date on my home website page here. Below is a planned availability, you can see up-to-date species and inventory online here. Please contact me if there's a specific species, size or number you need.
