The plants we grow are 'wild' in the sense that they have not been selected or bred for any particular characteristic like some of our more familiar garden fruits. They are just as nature created them.
Our aim is to offer our customers a wide range of unusual fruiting plants, trees, shrubs and perennials including a number of natives, some that are otherwise quite difficult to come by and all produced here in the nursery. Something useful and different to provide variety for your sustainable food production, simply to make use of that awkward corner and shady spot, or to help fill up the wildlife garden
Please take a look through our pages and see what we have on offer to inspire and help you in your garden!
As well as our main pages (Trees, Large Shrubs, Small Shrubs, Perennials, Edible Flowers, Native and Tender), our COMPLETE PLANT LIST will hopefully help you locate a particular plant, only Latin names for the moment... or if you need help deciding what to grow and where, try our PLANT SELECTION page to give you a few ideas, and there are many more seasonal pictures on our facebook page too.
PLEASE NOTE; sometimes my reply to the Email Order Form will go straight into your junk mail! If you don't hear from me within a day or so please do check, as I will always reply ASAP!
WINTER IN THE NURSERY
New for this season we have a lovely Hardy Citrus (Poncirius trifoliata) and two species of Juneberries (Amelanchier canadensis and lamarkii) to add to our list. Please see relevant pages for details.
On special offer for the summer three for two we have our Wild Strawberries (Fragaria vesca), Purple Chokeberries (Aronia prunifolia), Seabuckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides), both Treacleberries (Smilacina racemosa and stellata)...while stocks last
Due to high demand some of our stock is running low, but most things listed as sold out should be available again next season. Sadly we will have no more Saskatoons (Amelanchier alnifolia) till the spring!
Always productive every year, the Willow-leaved Sea buckthorn (Hippophae salicifolia) brightens up a dull winters day...the berries hang on the tree for many weeks through the late autumn and winter.
Though acid, they are highly nutritious and very refreshing as a juice either on their own or mixed with other fruit.
Looking forward to new projects in the spring!
