I grow seedlings/starter plants to give you a head start on creating an incredible garden. You can order them year-round, but they’re only available for pick up in May - June each year (with some exceptions for hardy perennials).
Use the form below to place your order. I’ll confirm that I’ve received your order and I’ll let you know when your starter plants are ready for pick up.
If I sell out of a particular plant for this year, I've noted it in the description below.
Is there a plant you’d like to order, but you don’t see it listed below? Use the form to let me know about it. I’ll let you know if I can start that plant for you.

Artichoke, Imperial Star (Cynara scolymus): Large plants, hardy perennial when mulched in winter. Produces up to 7-8 sweet tender buds in 1st season. Great for the pollinators with its stunning flowers! Artichoke leaves are sometimes used in Bitters. $5/each. SOLD OUT for 2021!
Comfrey (Symphytum officinale): Amazing soil enhancing plant; a dynamic accumulator--just cut it back several times over the growing season. Watch out--if you dig around the roots, you get more plants! It really does propogate from a small piece of root! The polliinators love it too! I always leave some to flower for the bees. Planted to the north side of a fruit tree, it is handy to chop and drop right in place. Also a medicinial plant for external use. $5/each.
Elderberry, Black (Sambucus nigra subsecies: Sambucus candensis, York). Black Elderberry bush; fast growing, with medicinal flowers and berries. Propogated from my 7 year old bushes. Very fast growing. Will begin to flower and fruit within 3 years. $10/each. Next available in Autumn 2021.
Feverfew (Tanacetum parthenium): a self-seeding annual, with a distinctive smell; useful as medicinal and as a pest confuser. $4/each. SOLD OUT for 2021!
Forsythia (Forsythia spp.): perennial bush with yellow edible flowers. This is one of the first plants to flower in the spring and is a bee attractor (though it doesn't actually provide pollen) and it's a spirit lifter as we all await the growing season! Fast growing, requires full sun to partial shade. $7/each.
Lovage (Levisticum officinale): Very tall and bushy plant, up to 6 feet tall and 2-3 feet wide. Strong celery flavoured leaves, fantastic to dry to flavour soups and stews all winter. A great beneficial attractor (beneficial insects). May self-seed. $4/each. SOLD OUT for 2021!
Maximilian Sunflower (Helianthus maximiliani): NOT available this year.
Motherwort (Leonurus cardiaca): grows tall and wide and the bees love it in flower. Significant medicinal herb. Self-seeds voraciously! Perennial, $5/each. SOLD OUT for 2021!
Nodding Onion $3/each.
Mullein (Verbascum thapsus): biennial plant. Year 1-prostrate and wide. Year 2 - develops a tall spike (up to 5 feet tall) with yellow flowers; great for the pollinators and for medicine making. The leaves are fuzzy and grey green, useful for medicine as well. ($4/each)
Sorrel (Rumex acetosa): Delicious early spring green, lemony, tart flavour. Full of vitamins, great raw or cooked. I love making Sorrel soup! This plant can self seed if you let it, but then you have more plants! Great to chop and drop to nourish the soil instead. $5/each.
Valerian: (Valeriana officinallis) $5/each. SOLD OUT for 2021!
Welsh Onion. Perennial clumping onion--like a green onion. $2/each or 6 for $10.
