Grow Native Plants!

We grow and sell a variety of trees, shrubs and plants that are ideal for naturescaping, gardening, or ecological restoration projects. All of our plants originate from local Galiano Island stock and are suitable for the unique climate of the Gulf Islands. Check out our Sales below to find out how you can purchase native plants and access consultation services for your project.

For further information, check out About the Nursery to understand the history, purpose and operations of the nursery.

Consultation Services

We also offer consultation for ecological restoration projects and naturescaping with a professional biologist. A consultation could include a site visit, choosing suitable native plants for the site conditions and recommendation for best planting locations. We may also be able to offer planning and design for more complex ecological restoration projects. The cost is $37.50 per hour.

Salvage

Planning to build a road, build a shed, or clear an area? Contact us first, and let us salvage the native plants from the area before they are slated for demolition. All plants will be transferred to the nursery, transplanted and used for one of our many projects.
