Pre-order fall vegetable seedlings

UPDATE 8/21/20: Pre-ordering has passed, but we have extras. Go to the online store to reserve yours, or email us directly at if the website lists the items as sold out. 

We’re offering a pre-order option for fall vegetable and herb seedlings (and a few annual flowers too). Reserving your plants prior to mid-July helps us grow the correct number of plants. With so many people at home gardening this year, generating a count prior to seeding in the greenhouse is even more important than ever.

Put a note on your calendar that your fall plants should be ready for pickup in late August or early September. We contact you then.

Choose: Arugula, Cilantro, Collards, Dwarf Siberian Kale, Buttercrunch or Cimarron Romaine Lettuce, Pak Choi or two types of Spinach. We also have Nasturtiums, which have edible leaves, and Alyssum, a lovely flower for attracting insects that are beneficial to the garden.

We’re also experimenting with Broccoli Raab, so if you’d like to try it, send an email to, let us know how many you’d like, and we’ll set them aside for you.

And as always, if you prefer to pay by check rather than through the online store, you can email us the names and quantities of the plants you'd like, or call 828.333.4151.

Many thanks - Ordering ahead is a big help to your neighborhood sustainable nursery!

P.S. If you can't predict if gardening is going to fit into your life this fall and need to wait until August to order, no worries, we always grow extra.
