to Free Spirit
We 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
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.
