About Us

about me

In business since 2005, we specialize in Western IL/Eastern IA ecotype prairie, woodland, and wetland forbs and grasses. New for 2015! 3 garden kits designed for Monarchs, Honeybees, and Hummingbirds. We've taken the guesswork out of plant selection and planting design. Each kit contains pollinator favorites in a season long display of color, pollen, and nectar. Plants require minimal care, watering once a week if we don't get rain and removal of spent flowers. After their first year, they only require an annual cleanup and removal of old flowerheads if desired.
