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…

Violets

Viola Odorata
Beautiful ground covering Violets have been spreading and filling in our landscape in many garden beds. We’ve watched over the years as they colonize and thoroughly fill the ground space in the more moist, shady parts of the garden. Tolerant of quite shady conditions, they can be an incredibly useful, beautiful AND edible ground cover to your shrub and tree guilds. We’ve learned to avoid planting them in areas where other low growing plants are (for example, we aren’t thrilled with our strawberry and violet ‘guild’). They are strong competitors in the 1”-6” division of the garden and can make life hard for other small beings. But under the shade of a currant, or as a vigorous filler of an understory they are wonderful. Strong roots help hold soil together and their low and full canopy keep soils moist, cool and seem to really help support fungal life

A great article here: https://www.ediblewildfood.com/wild-violet.aspx can give you more ideas about this lovely little garden friend.

We offer Violets from our various patches. Mostly they flower purple but we see shades of blue and white and other diversity in the patches. They are easily expanded by root fragments and divisions. Your order will provide you with 3-5+ root sections that can be established as they are or divided further and cared for in a nursery bed to ramp up your numbers quickly.
