Plants for Fall 2019 Shipping

Your order placed now will be collected, carefully packaged and shipped as bare root plants as soon as we enter dormancy this fall. This normally begins mid to late October and into early November. We’ll email you shipping confirmation and tracking details as soon as they ship! Since our nursery is outdoors and based on nature our timing is dependent on the weather.

TIP: Use the tags above to help filter our offerings by characteristic (ie. click on ‘fruit’ to find any fruit bearing plants we offer, etc.) As we add more and more it is a helpful way to find a plant to fit your goals…

Crambe Maritima
 Beautiful, unique, perennial green with a lot going for it.  Incredibly hardy, comes up very early in the season, has massive edible leaves, interesting ‘broccoli’ tops and a very ancient feel about it.

 Once established it is a very reliable plant in the garden, doesn’t tend to run or spread, and can be grown out from root fragments or seed to expand your plants.

 Roots were dug up and roasted by neolithic peoples, tops enjoyed by ancient peoples, now you can grow it for you and your peoples!

Size:
About 1’ to 2’ and up to 3’ when in flower.

Site Preference:
Native to very cold, sandy/rocky beaches in Northern Scotland, and can thrive in most garden positions.

Hardiness:
Zone 5

Notes on Options:

Rooted: You will receive a 1 year old rooted plant taken from root cuttings.  They may be on the small side but establish very well once planted.  Should get up to full size within the first or second growing season and be ready to divide and propagate within 2-3 years!

Fragments: If you opt for the root fragments option, you'll get 2-3 root pieces (2-4" long) that you can pot up or grow in a rich, weed free bed for a season to get established and then set out.  This is a lower cost way to build up your plant stock and how we expand our plantings at the farm. Please be aware that root fragments planted outdoors in the fall can sometimes have issues in colder/wetter climates. They may perform best potted up and stored in root cellar conditions or cold basement until spring.
