I fell in love with our native flora in a rough patch of my life, during which the only time I felt okay was when I was out alone on wild land; it was then that I started foraging and my fascination with plants was born. In recent years working as a gardener specializing in native plants, I grew increasingly frustrated that so much native biodiversity is missing from our gardens because the species just simply aren't available to buy. This is why I grow these plants – because nobody else is.
I spend my year planned around collecting seed from plants all around the state. The vast majority of my plants are grown from the seed that I seek out, but there are some that I propagate vegetatively by dividing stems and rhizomes from a small number of wild collected plants, such as Opuntia (prickly pear), Sedum (stonecrop) and Viola (violets and pansies). I never directly sell plants that I have collected from the wild, though I am interested in salvage opportunities.
Sustainability is a work in progress for all growers, and I feel pretty good about where I'm at so far. My operation is 100% peat free and I avoid the use of industrially-intensive soil additives like vermiculite and perlite, in favor of materials like coir, pumice, and neem cake. I reuse plastic containers as fast as I acquire them, largely from my work as a gardener. I use beneficial microbes instead of the standard fungicides for seedlings.
Currently available plants are available on a first-come basis (either in-person ordering via email). If you'd like to put in a special order of a quantity of plants to be grown from seed specifically for you, my entire seed inventory is available for special ordering plants. Note: Nobody Nursery does not sell seed at this time.
The minimum special order size is 72 individual plants, and container sizes can range from plug to pint/3.5"/4". ***There is no minimum for normal mail or in-person orders***
NOTE: under my standard shipping rates, plants are shipped bare-root. To inquire about custom rates for shipping in pots (with soil), email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ordering plugs? There is an additional charge of $0.50 per plug, since plants that age/size tend not to be ideal candidates for bare-root shipping.
$14 or 10% of the total order, whichever is greater.
$34 or 30% of the total order, whichever is greater.
$18 or 30% of the total order, whichever is greater.
Shipping outside of the PNW: inquire for rates
Shipping outside the US: I'll figure out how to do this if I get a big enough order.
10% . . . orders of $100 or more
15% . . . orders of $500 or more
20% . . . orders of $1000 or more
Note: If it’s crucial that a recipient receive an electronic gift card on an exact date, I recommend that you have it sent to yourself now and provide them with either the whole email or just the redemption code on the desired date.
Be in the know when new offerings become available; emails are infrequent.
