Go Native! perennials: doing our part to address seed scarcity
Updated: Jun 29
Obviously the seed scarcity problem is huge, and we are very small - but Go Native! perennials will do what we can in our eco-region to keep our natural history alive in hopes that it will one day thrive again!
As part of the Northeast Seed Network at the Native Plant Trust, we've received a list of plant species to grow, selected for several criteria:
wide ranging across the NE
relatively easy to grow/collect/store/propagate, and were likely to be included in restoration seed mixes (for a diversity of habitats)
keystone species in a particularly habitat type
underrepresented in the nursery trade, and likely good commercially
So, we're clearing more fields to grow more plants that will produce more seed!
Support our efforts to expand:
Hire us to replace (some) lawn with a wildflower meadow
Hire us to put in an ecological garden
Hire us to grow native plants for restoration/re-naturalization work you'd like to do
Buy native plants (only part of our inventory is online; come visit to see more!)
