Growing plants is not the same as making widgets. They are
alive and deserve the respect we give to living things. We
grow out plants at a natural pace, outdoors, with the same
stresses they will face in your garden. This is why our plants
live. Unfortunately, many of the plants today
are grown on a steady diet of fertilizer, which makes them
saleable faster; (time is money!) But this also makes them
weak and susceptible to insects and disease. Compare our plants
to theirs- Ours are more compact, the foliage firmer. We don’t
like pesticides here. We let natural predators and botanicals
keep the bad stuff at bay. That leaves us with a garden full
of birds and wildlife. More than one hundred twenty species
of birds have been seen on our eight acres. Many of them nest
here. Foxes, weasels and mink roam our forests and fields.
A Frog jumping from a pot or a hawk in the hedgerow, watching
with one wild impenetrable eye may surprise you-But not us.
They live here.
