Pesticides, Herbicides and Fungicides

We do not use any type of "cide," which in Latin means "killer" or "the act of killing. Pesticides are designed to eradicate a wide range of plant problems, fungicides kill fungi and herbicides focus on eliminating unwanted plants.

Our Native Plants
Organic Farming Practice

We propagate our native Ohio plants using organic farming principles, the majority of which are started from seed. This not only ensures that our stock remains diverse, strong and healthy it is our passion! We strive to procure Ohio ecotype seed, as it has a "history" with our region.

Seed Provenance

On our website, located on the bottom right hand corner for each of our plants is a record of where our seed was obtained. You will notice a large portion is ours!
Second Season 

Our Ohio native plants are sold in gallon pots (nursery trade) and in some cases quarts once they are in their second season and have survived an Ohio winter!

Our Secret 

Soil that is teeming with life! Oh, and lots of: pumpkins, leaves, hay and kitchen scraps that our community so generously collects for us!

Predatory insects are welcome with open arms!
