Go Natives! Nursery is a small retail native plant nursery in Richmond Beach, north of Seattle in Shoreline. We offer more than 180 species of native plants from throughout the Pacific Northwest. We grow out most of our plants from bare root and plugs, and scour wholesalers from the Willamette Valley to British Columbia for interesting plants. Our plants are ideal for rain gardens, creating backyard wildlife habitat, and residential landscaping. Go Natives! Nursery can also broker plant orders for large projects like commercial landscaping and restoration sites. Don Norman started Go Natives! Nursery in 2004.
Our Inventory has been updated this week. (It was done March 10, 2016 so ask about any plants you want!) and other arrivals will be in later this month. But ask – we can help you find plants! We are scouring the area! Also, if you see something in the inventory you might want for the fall let us know and we can set some aside for you.
Remember…..We are often around on closed days and always available for appointments! Expanded hours in May to 4 days per week.
Go Natives! Nursery can locate more than 200 species of native plants from around the Pacific NW! Our inventory includes a wide variety of rain-garden plants like Juncus effusus, Kelsey dogwood, Carex obnupta, Eleocharis palustris, and many others such as skunk cabbage, nodding onion and Myrica gale. Our latest new addition, Mountain Alder (Alnus incana) is a common higher elevation alder we have never carried before. We also were able to locate some Vanilla Leaf (Achlys triphylla) that we have been looking for all fall! We also found more Trillium and Cinquefoil (Dasiphora potentilla) that are great for yards that have everything! The open prairie Mule’s Ears (Wyethia amplexicaulis) is another new cool plant at the nursery. We now have 4 species of Viola in stock!
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, mycorrhyzal 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! Nursery works with wholesalers from the Willamette Valley in Oregon to British Columbia, ferreting out small mom and pop operations that are providing quality product with high “in the ground” survival, at excellent prices.
Take a look at our inventory for quantities and pricing. 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! Nursery brokers larger orders than are shown in our inventory. To discuss your project, contact Don Norman at email@example.com.
