    Due to COVID 19

    Due to COVID 19 and the fall out of the staffing under these conditions we are experiencing a stumble in our normal services and a lag in filling on-line orders. We are doing our best to hang in to get service and shipments to those of you that call. The high demand on our staff has slowed phone and email replies to an unacceptable level. We ask for your patience in all order and delivery matters as we have been stretched beyond our staffing. All is not gloom however, we have been steadily improving response times and orders that have been sent in both on-line and on the phone are being filled. If not just a bit later than we had planned. We will work hard to to regain our standing and plan on coming back stronger as the season rolls along. We would also like to thank all of you that have purchased from us. To any that are interested in placing an order please do not feel that we can not help. I assure you we can; it is just taking longer than is usual for us. Thank you all for your business, and we will strive to meet your native plant needs.

    Small Window into using a Native or a Cultivar for Pollinators

    Several months ago I was talking to a friend of mine from the east coast, and we were discussing pollinators and the plant lists that seem to be leaping from every corner of the web from all kinds of sources. We both agreed that the whole idea of gardening for pollinators is a good thing and that the use of natives were improving, along with understanding of native plant needs and importance. But many of the sources included or were dominated by non-natives or cultivars.
