Has your group considered a Lecture, Seminar, and Workshop? Randi is an accomplished lecturer and popular public speaker. If you would like her to come share her knowledge with your local group, be they a garden club, a university class, master gardeners, etc let us know. As you can see, we already have many events booked for this spring and we are already working on other events for later in the year.

Part of our mission is Education so we offer a series of articles as blogs

Let us know if you would like a copy of our printed catalogue

Our plant descriptions let you know how difficult each species is to start and we have a helpful guide that describe the various techniques that you can use to start native perennial seeds.

When buying wildflowers, make sure they are propagated, not removed from the wild! If you have any doubt, ask! Some plant species have been driven to extinction in the wild due to the collection of wild plants!

There is always music amongst the trees in the garden, but our hearts must be very quiet to hear it.
