2019 Seed Sale

75 species of wildflowers, ferns, grasses and shrubs for a variety of habitats, from hot and sunny to dry, wet or shady.

All seeds were hand-collected in Maine from native gardens or from private lands with owner permission. Seeds marked as "Sold Out" will be replenished in the fall of 2019.

If you are new to seed sowing, aster, milkweed, coneflower, beebalm, beardtongue, lobelia and wild strawberry are easy for beginners. Try a variety of different seeds and be rewarded with an abundance of native plants for your garden and/or to share with others. Choose species with a germination code A or B to gain experience before trying those with codes D, E, F, G and ferns. Seeds can be planted in pots or a growing bed outdoors and will germinate when the conditions are right for each species. Fall and winter are great times to sow native seeds.
