Buying Native Plants Locally


A lot of people ask us where we found the plants for the Sustainable Garden, so we thought we’d publish the list to make them easy to find! Native plants are more suited to our wet winters and dry summers, and are great for providing the pollen and food sources for our local fauna.

Remember, even drought-tolerant natives do like supplemental water for their first season, while they get established, and most prefer to be planted in the fall! This helps them develop a good root system before the harsh summer weather.
