PRICE AND STOCK LIST

images_033

All potted stock are raised using seeds and nuts collected in the greater golden horseshoe area of southern Ontario. We specialize in native and Carolinian trees and shrubs. 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.

Our stock is priced by height.

Greater than 7 feet $40.00

5 – 7 feet $30.00

3 – 5 feet $20.00

1 – 3 feet $15.00

up to 1 foot $10.00

The stock listing will indicate what we have on site. To be quite honest, I would rather be seed collecting or tending to the trees instead of constantly updating the stock listing. To find out if we have stock available in your desired heights, simply contact us.

NECTAR PLANTS ($6.00/pot)

One of the biggest problems, especially for migrating pollinators, is the lack of late summer and fall nectar producing plants.  We need to have fall feeding plants to refuel hungry butterflies and hummingbirds.

In response to the latest scientific survey (2015) indicating a lack of fall nectar plants, we have created a line of heavy nectar producing plants blooming from July to October.

SLENDER MOUNTAIN MINT (PYCNANTHEMUM TENUIFOLIUM)

A very fragrant, mint like aroma, emitted from all parts of the plant.  A white blooming flower from July to September ranging in height from 2 – 3 feet and spreading 2 – 3 feet.  This easy to grow perennial grows in full to part sun and tolerates a wide range of conditions from :  drought, erosion, clay soil, dry soil and shallow rocky soil.  This plant is recognized by pollination ecologists as attracting large numbers of native bees.

TALL SUNFLOWER ( HELIANTHUS GIGANTEUS)

A showy, golden perennial growing from 3 – 10 feet high and spreading 18 – 24 inches.  Usually blooming September to October and seeds ripening October to November.  This is a dual purpose plant having special value for a wide range of native bees.  Approximately, 25 types of moths feed on this sunflower.  Once seeds have set, various types of songbirds eat the ripe sunflower seeds.  This plant favors moist sites, river banks, ditches and marshes.

BLAZING STAR (LIATRIS SPICATA)

This purple flower is a special value to native bees and hummingbirds.  You will see it growing wild in open meadows and fields in full sun blooming from July to August.  Tolerates drought and clay soil.  It reaches heights of 2 – 4 feet and spreads .75 – 1.5 feet wide.

HEATH ASTER (SYMPHYOTRICHUM ERICOIDES)

This aster grows in full sun preferring  dry to average, well drained soils.  It tolerates drought and grows well in poor soils.  This plants will attain heights of 1 – 3 feet and spreads 2 – 3 feet.  Blooming time is August to Sept and it is a critical fall nectar source for Monarchs on their fall migration to Mexico.  It is a special value plant for pollinators, honeybees, bumble bees and butterflies.  It is also a larval plant for some butterflies.

NEW ENGLAND ASTER (SYMPHYOTRICHUM NOVAE – ANGLIAE)

This aster prefers moist to average soil consisting of loam or clay.  It will grow in full to partial sun and bloom from August to September.  It will reach heights of 3 – 6 feet and spread 2 – 3 feet.  This aster is also a critical fall nectar source for Monarchs on their fall migration to Mexico.  It is attractive to bees, bumble bees and butterflies.  Also a larval plant for some butterflies.
