Welcome to Free Spirit

W
e are a small nursery that is proud to operate as a 'traditional' nursery. We not only grow but also propagate 90+% of the plants we sell on our property. We do not use mass production technologies.

All our plants and mother stock are grown in garden loam or in containers with a composted bark as a base medium. We vegetatively propagate all our named varieties. Seed propagation is only used for true species or with the intent to create variety.

Except for a minimum amount of quality slow release fertilizers for the containers and about 3 applications of the nature-friendly Safer's slug and snail bait , no chemical herbicides or pesticides are being used. All weeds are picked by hand and pests are controlled with appropriate organic methods. Toads are still roaming the greenhouses and borders, tree frogs croak from the oddest locations and scores of birds, bees and butterflies add extra value and interest to the gardening experience.

At the nursery we show and share dynamic planting schemes in which not only color and flowering time play a role but more so the character, texture and flower shapes in order to create a garden that continuously changes under the influence of light, wind, precipitation and time, demanding different levels of appreciation from the viewer.
