The Bee Sweet Nature Difference

We hand collect and grow all our Ontario Native plants, strictly from seeds we collect. Whether you are looking for Ontario Native Trees, Shrubs, Grasses, or Wild Flowers, our passion is to increase the biodiversity of the southern Ontario landscape by offering local, native stock. We are also beekeepers and sell both liquid and creamed fresh Ontario Honey. Furthermore, we sell a variety of homemade soap, lip balm, and related personal care products.

We hand-collect and grow Ontario native seeds, from nature.

We don't stake our trees allowing for natural growth.

We are backed by research and science.

We treat every tree to reduce transplant shock and permanently improve both water and nutrient uptake.

Customer Comments

Thank you for the delicious honey. It goes in my weekly baking of Blueberry bran muffins and you end up using a little less than white sugar because honey is sweeter than plain sugar. I also goes in the whole wheat bran bread my husband had been baking from scratch for over 25 years. You took great care of the shrubs overwinter. The meadowsweet is lush and the shrubs I purchased will have a good home here. Thanks again. See you when the button bush shrubs are out and ready to pick up.

Even the name is interesting. The Genus name honors the Greek god, Asklepios, the god of medicine. There are 100 species throughout the world…

People have been inquiring to the meaning of our wish list. Isn’t it just an order form? My answer is yes and no. Prior to opening our nursery here, at Bee Sweet Nature Co, I would place my plant orders, well in advance, with growers and get disappointed every year…

Our greatest pride, for our nursery, is being totally organic. No use of pesticides. Sometimes this is not the easiest course of action but it certainly feels like the most correct one. I just need to look at all our honeybees and native bees for encouragement. It is not about…

Our last posting talked about not using synthetic fertilizer. Actually, we allow the plants to fertilize themselves through fungal soil inoculation. Making no sense? The fungi live symbiotically with the plant roots and access Nitrogen from the surrounding soil in exchange for some plant carbs. This process creates plants more…
