COVID-19 Update:

Please be aware that nursery access, hours, and availability may be affected due to COVID-19. Please check websites or call ahead of your visit, and comply with local and state recommendations in effect at the time.

When buying plants or seeds from a new source, it’s a good idea to ask questions about: where seeds were collected (closer is better), whether plants are cultivars or true native species (what’s the difference and why does it matter?), and whether any pesticides have been used.
