About Us

Go Natives! Nursery is a small retail native plant nursery in Richmond Beach, north of Seattle in Shoreline. Go Natives! Nursery started in 2004 as a weekend truck tailgate sale nursery operated by Don Norman.  Go Natives! has carried more than 270 species of NW natives, along with some fruit trees and blueberries and typically has more than 170 species of native plants in stock throughout the Pacific Northwest.  We grow out most of our plants from bare root and plugs, and source from 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.

The nursery supports many local organizations and is especially interested in helping support backyard wildlife programs, rain garden programs like Soak it Up (city of Shoreline).  Our staff member Deb Horn can help with design, and Katherine Shyi is a Rain Wise contractor (City of Seattle).  Don Norman is an ecoPro through the Washington State Nursery and Landscape Association (WSNLA) and can help with issues like steep slopes and wildlife planting.
