Featured news & events:

Fall is the time for planting!

We welcome the rains and the cooling weather! Time to put out the fires and moisten the soil. Time to plant, replant, restore, and renew.

We are open by appointment and want to encourage any one who wants to plant native plants to do it in the fall! Give plants time during wet winters to begin to settle in and establish roots. It may make your first year of establishing plants a little easier, especially come next summer. We are looking forward to a great season of planting and hope to see you at the nursery.

 

One thing that we do not advertise, but is 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 Covid concerns of crowded places. We are also taking measures to ensure a healthy space based on CDC recommendations.

We are 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!

Go to our plant list to see what is currently available in the nursery and check out our picture gallery to help with your planning.

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.
