Nurseries and garden stores are often stocked with ornamental exotics – many of them pre-treated with pesticides. Healthy native plants can be harder to find. These sources are local, well-established, and happy to send free catalogs:
- Bluestem Farm
- Dragonfly Gardens
- The Flower Factory
- Pasque Flower Farm
- Prairie Nursery
- Prairie Moon Nursery
If you’d rather grow edibles, Seed Savers Exchange specializes in heirloom varieties of herbs and vegetables.
Native plant sales are another great source, and tend to occur in the spring. The Plant Dane! program offers plants by pre-order only; order forms may be submitted until March 23. Another upcoming plant sale will be mentioned in next week’s post.
That Blog does not endorse any particular source of native plants.
