Go Natives! Nursery is a small retail nursery in Richmond Beach, north of Seattle in Shoreline. We offer more than 170 species of native plants from local growers throughout the Pacific Northwest. Our plants are ideal for rain gardens, creating backyard wildlife habitat, and residential landscaping. Go Natives! can also broker plant orders for large projects like commercial landscaping and restoration sites.

Our Plants

Go Natives! offers more than 170 species of native plants from the Pacific NW!  Our inventory includes a wide variety of rain-garden plants like Juncus effusus, Kelsey dogwood, Carex obnuptaEleocharis palustris, and many others such as skunk cabbage, nodding onion and Myrica gale. 

We believe in plants that are ready for the real world. Plants that are propagated or potted at our nursery are given low amounts of organic fertilizer, mycorrhizal fungi for healthy root systems and appropriate soil mixes. We practice integrated pest management and don’t rely on  chemical treatments that weaken the plant’s natural ability to cope with natural stressors. We use non-chlorinated water.

Go Natives! works with wholesalers from Portland to British Columbia, ferreting out small mom and pop operations that are providing quality product with high “in the ground” survival, at excellent prices.  Our newest supplier is Walla Walla Nursery for some grasses!

Barnhill It’s best to confirm what’s in stock prior to ordering as sometimes things move too fast for us to keep it updated. For large projects, Go Natives! brokers larger orders than are shown in our inventory. To discuss your project, contact Don Norman at don@gonativesnursery.com.

Visiting the Nursery  by appointment:  To visit and buy plants outside of our public hours, please make an appointment by sending an email to gonatives@gmail.com. The nursery is located in Richmond Beach at 2112 NW 199th St.

If you can, send a list of what you would like to pick up to gonatives@gmail.com  and we can pull the plants ahead of time and have them ready for you to pick up.  Don and his truck are available to help get plants to your place. We offer a consultation with help on a plan, with delivery and placement of plants for $75.

Don is back in the Northwest from his trip to the  Republic of Georgia in December, and a family holiday in New Orleans.  The trip to Kazbegi National Park in the Caucasus Mountains with Ilia State University was successful and 16% of the Guldenstadt’s Redstarts and 1 of 10 Great Rosefinches were seen, and some good mark-recapture data on the Redstarts was collected in the sea buckthorn (Hippodae rhamnoides). A new MBA student has been trying to learn more about the harvest of buckthorn for local juice production and Nino got a full experience watching us banded and talking to the locals.  Check out photos soon to be posted on the Go Natives Nursery Facebook page.
