Specialty Nursery

We specialize in edible and medicinal plants that will do well in our area, including unique plants that you may not have heard of!  We also have plants that add a functional element to your landscape such as nitrogen fixers or dynamic accumulators, are excellent pollinators for our native insects, birds, and bees.

Inventory changes do occur but most of our plants can be viewed in the products section of the website or by clicking here

For example, the Desert King Fig is hardy to 5 degrees F and can be grown in a container or in the ground.  As well as being a unique addition to your yard with it’s exotic-looking leaf structure, it produces a medium-sized fig and a mature plant can yield 10-15 lbs in a season.

Another unique plant is the Honeyberry (Lonicera caerulea var. edulis).  Hardy to minus 40F, the Honeyberry produces a berry that is delicious and higher in antioxidants than blueberries.  1/2 day to full sun and 2 varieties that bloom at a similar time are necessary for cross-pollination.  Some varieties will reach only 2-3 feet in height and produce 5-10 lbs of berries per plant.  They are also disease and pest resistant.bluevelvethoneyberry

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Love blueberries but are renting your house or only have a small space for a container garden?  The Top Hat Blueberry is an excellent choice for container gardens.  Attractive and compact, it will grow to around 2 feet in height and produce a prolific amount of pea-sized blueberries.  In the fall, the leaves will turn a fiery red or orange color before falling off.   Can also be grown as a bonsai plant!

Columnar Apples are another fun container plant.  You need to plant two for cross-pollination, and we would recommend the golden and scarlet sentinel.  Approximately 50+ apples per tree after a couple of years.  I got 15-20 apples this year on my trees that were in their 2nd year since purchasing and are around 7 feet tall in 10 gallon containers.

    Saw your nursery mentioned on Gardening with Cisco, and my wife is a nut for organic plants, so I’ll tell her about your site. I’m pretty sure when I do that, we’ll be planning a trip from Federal Way to Redmond.
