Trusted plant nurseries

I thought I would start a list of the nurseries I trust enough to recommend to you. This is by no means a complete list of trustworthy nurseries out there but those that I know about and buy from myself. I have always bought my plants from as many independent nurseries as I can, and while it’s impossible to always buy plants that haven’t been raised in peat or that don’t use pesticides, I’ve been making an increasing effort to focus on those that do offer plants grown with more sustainable methods, or are trying their best to. I believe it’s really important to support nurseries that are trying to make the shift to being greener, even if they aren’t perfect yet, because our business helps them make the change. None of us are perfect when it comes to our footprint on the planet, it’s about our actions and trying.
