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.
