Ontario Native Plant Inventory

All potted stock is raised 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 knowing 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 and use no artificial fertilizer. Mycorrhiza enhances plant survival by increasing the availability of nutrients and water. We have started air pruning our stock. This is a new technology that creates superior root development.

We are now open for our 2020 season with curbside pickup available. Please be sure to contact us with your orders and we will arrange pickup dates and times. Don't worry, the plants aren't going anywhere.


Are you designing your garden and are looking to reserve trees for a future purchase? Register for our Wish List and we will ensure your trees are ready when you need them. This list is on a first-come, first-served basis.


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.

...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
