All of our plants are cared for with natural practices, without the use of synthetic chemicals. However, our nursery is considered a Plant Sanctuary. Some plants we sell are brought in from other nurseries who do not follow the same standards of quality that we do. Once a plant arrives at our nursery, they are cared for with organic and natural practices.

We hand select for each order from our stock of premium quality plants at A Natural Farm in Howey-in-the-Hills, Florida. Quality in plant propagation is of upmost importance when seeking nutrition & medicinal value from edible plants!

*Planting Instructions*
Once your plant arrives, its best practice to water it right away. Your plant may or may not experience leaf drop, show signs of stress or be in a dormant phase. Regardless, it just traveled a great journey to get to its new home, so  give it some time to accumlate! If planting in the ground, check your weather forecast to ensure frost or freezing tempreatures have passed for the year. Potting up into a larger pot can be done at any time.

Check the site and water requirements listed for each plant to have a good understanding of what your plant needs. Each garden is different, so don't be afraid to make a good decision based on your specific location.

To maximize yield and ensure a healthy life of your fruit tree, mulch around the drip line, topdress with compost, vermicpompost & organic matter regularly, use organic fertilizer high in nitrogen 2-3 times per year, garden with companion plants of cover crops, flowering plants and herbs! These straetgies are useful in container gardening as well.
