Many gardeners have been looking to add native plants to their gardens. Here is a list as of March 2021 compiled by Kath Terry, Patty King and Claudette Sims, Halton Master Gardeners. The criteria for being included on this list was that most plants for sale by these businesses are native to the Ontario region. When you shop for native plants it’s especially important to use the botanical (scientific) name so that you can be sure you are getting the species you want.
Claudette Sims has compiled a map of Nurseries with primarily native plants and also other nurseries in Southern Ontario: Please copy and paste the following link: https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/edit?mid=1dHiK77VTR2EKZXbXoKdTctGGZDVvPqeJ&ll=44.38440756046106%2C-81.08173131484375&z=8
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any other nurseries to include, remove or update. With thanks,
Halton Master Gardeners
PLEASE NOTE: Because of the pandemic, it is best to contact the nursery in advance. Many have indicated they will take orders by email or telephone.
