Native Plant Offerings

admin February 14th, 2011

There are a lot of reason to plant natives – to restore a battered landscape, to support native pollinators (bumblebees alone have declined by 96% in the last decades), to add diversity back to landscapes that are largely monocultured, because they are beautiful and fascinating plants.  We do some restoration work (ie, helping bring back the native diversity of sites), and offer seed grown natives that do well in cold climates to give you the chance to restore and beautify your place.

If you aren’t sure what plants go well on your site, or would like help making use of them, there are some suggestions for plants that go well together.   We also offer “native plant gardens” for sale as a group with a planting plan.

We specialize in wetland and Rain Garden native plants – consider adding a native plants rain garden to a spot with poor drainage, or where the downspout comes off a roof of a house, shed or outbuilding.  They are both beautiful and important to many species of wildlife.  All natives are well grown and sell from $2-6 per plant, unless noted.  Most are on the cheaper side of that, with the most expensive plants being the shrubby ones.  Most plants are $2.50 each.

    We’re interested in Partridgeberry. Have you ever grown it? Do you know of a good source for it closer than the catskill native nursery down near Kerhonkson? I see 10 seeds for $4 or something on Amazon, but don’t know how well it does from seed… If you know anything about it, I’d be grateful.
