Ontario Native Plant Inventory

All potted stock is grown using seeds and nuts collected in the greater golden horseshoe area of southern Ontario. We specialize in Ontario native and Carolinian trees, shrubs, and wildflowers. Some of these trees are crucial for struggling and endangered pollinator populations. They all have wildlife appeal and will enhance the biodiversity of any site.

All stock is carefully grown keeping-in- mind that our world is changing and climate change will make for challenging conditions. We try to incorporate growing practices and science to enhance the survivability of stock. To note: some practices, we use no tree support but allow wind action to stimulate superior wood strength and root development. We inoculate all stock with fungi. Mycorrhiza enhances plant survival by increasing the availability of nutrients and water. We also air prune our stock, a new technology that creates superior root development.

A word on our seed sourcing. Presently, Ontario has 35 static seed zones. Before climate change issues, these seed zones supported the approach of ‘ local is best. ‘ In this era of changing climate, these seed zones have become obsolete. To facilitate assisted tree migration, we have reported our seed sources by geographical location, NOT seed zone. Since 2007, we have reported seed origins as a geographical site, for example, a city, to aid blended provenances and genetic diversity. We strive every day to keep our forests and landscapes resilient.

Don’t forget all our stock is Organic and Non GMO. We do not offer hybrids or nativars.


We have opened up our plant inventory to include food plants. These food plants may be non native and may be hybrids. These sustainable foods will appear at the very beginning of our plant inventory.

…A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in summer wear,
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree. 

Joyce Kilmer


Assisted Migration and Barry’s Bay Delivery

Our ‘ To The Cottage ‘ program has everything to do with climate change. Climate change will not skip over this precious ‘ lakes ‘ area. Not only is vegetation moving northward but also laterally range expanding – expanding the east to west boundaries. We decided to include stock derived from more northerly seed sources to help with our assisted tree migration program for the cottage country area. To find this stock simply look for the CAPITALIZED city nearest you in the origins section of our Ontario native plant inventory.

This Meet and Greet option is an expansion of our To The Cottage program. Since most of our shrubs, trees, and wildflowers are not grown as plugs but as potted plants, it can be quite pricey to ship orders. We decided that since we travel frequently up to the Barry’s Bay area we would offer assistance to our more northerly clients. And so the Meet and Greet option was born. We have had the pleasure of meeting customers, in an agreed upon meeting place and time while delivering their plant orders. The customers save the cost of shipping and we have the chance to put the face to the name.

If this option sounds applicable to you, simply email us and we will explore the possibilities, together.
