Spring/Summer 2020 & Covid-19
The seasons of growth and possibilities are upon us and we anticipate a beautiful spring & summer in the nursery! One thing that has been growing this year which we did not anticipate is concern for health and safety with the spread of Covid-19. For that reason many of the spring plant sales where you may be used to finding us have been cancelled. If you can't find us at your favorite plant sale, then we invite you to make an appointment to visit the nursery. One thing that we do not advertise, but may be of increased importance to our customers to know, is that the nursery is open by appointment and when we schedule appointments we normally schedule people individually so that we can give them our full attention and spend time helping them pick out the right plants for their site. This means no crowds and most likely no one else at the nursery when you visit other than us and you. We hope that this atmosphere sets our customers' minds at ease in the midst of concerns of mass gatherings and crowded places. We are also taking measures to ensure a healthy space based on CDC recommendations.
We imagine that for those of you trying to stay closer to home, this may be the perfect year to do some gardening and get to those landscaping projects you have been putting off. Perhaps put in that native pollinator garden you have been dreaming of. Try growing a camas patch for future harvest. Convert more of your landscaping to water-saving, drought tolerant native plants. Whatever your planting project is, we think a visit to the nursery will be a low-risk, high-reward way to achieve your goals.
We are also currently offering free local delivery (minimum order size may be required) and are happy to talk with you on the phone and help you choose the right plants for your space!
Give us a call at 503-449-3694 to schedule an appointment to visit us or to place an order!
We are looking forward to a great year of growing and gardening ahead and wish everyone a healthy and happy year!

The Columbia Gorge is well known for its beautiful wildflowers
We encourage everyone to take a few steps to help protect the beautiful native wildflowers of the Gorge while out hiking....
*Clean weed seeds from footwear before hitting the trail and use boot brushes at trail heads to help stop the spread of invasive plants that could harm native plant populations.
*Stay on the trail and please don't pick native wildflowers! What looks like a common flower may actually be a rare subspecies or endemic and picking them could do more harm to the population than you may think.
*Do not post locations of rare plants on social media.
Check back seasonally for updates. We will also post updates & links to these events and more on our Facebook page.
