Prioritizing Pollinators

Nothing brings us more joy than a happy client AND a bolstered local ecosystem! A meadow is the perfect way to remind the neighbors every year that cooperative conservation efforts can make your space VERY attractive. Why not spread the word of habitat restoration with a medley of blooms for all to appreciate? And yes, pollinator planting efforts on your land IS conservation! The fight against habitat loss is not just for government entities and non-profits. The homeowner must get involved.

Mayapples in May! Get 15% Off This Native, Perennial Groundcover…

For the month of May, we’ll be discounting one of our nursery’s quirkiest plants: the Mayapple. In the wild, these little green umbrellas spread through their rhizomes and form dense colonies in deciduous understory. Funnily, underneath the umbrella of leaves, they display a solitary white flower, which eventually becomes a small, edible fruit. They aren’t very “apple” like in size or shape and they don’t fruit in May, so the name can admittedly be somewhat confusing! It gets its name from the bloom time (which extends into May) and the flower bearing a resemblance to an apple tree blossom.
