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…

Rumex Acetosa
Very hardy perennial green, with a distinctly tart flavor, almost lemony.  Excellent in small amounts to add pep to a raw salad, can also be cooked like braising green to add sour elements to a dish.

This is one of the first greens you can enjoy in the early spring, it has great nutritional properties and is effortless to care for.  

It will ‘bolt’ when the temperatures get high, so either harvest often or plan to cut it back to reduce woody, tougher leaves that happen mid summer.  This is certainly a spring and fall player.

Size:
About 1’ high, up to 3’ tall with flowers.

Site Preference:
Seems tolerant of a very wide number of soils and sites.

Hardiness:
Zone 2
