Artemisia’s Forest Garden Nursery will be dissolving after this Fall’s pick-up on September 28, 2019. I (Rob) am so happy for the six years of growing and deepening with my business partner Shantree Kacera, it’s been a beautiful experience. But time goes on, and while Shantree continues to operate the Living Centre with Lorenna, Julie and I will be focusing more on Willow Creek Farm, and part of that will be importing trees.
In the next couple of months, you’ll be able to start ordering for Spring 2020. Details are still being worked out, but we will not be shipping plants in spring 2020, so pick-up will likely be at the farm, near Dutton, Ontario, about 30 minutes from south London, just off the 401.
Sign up below to get email updates about when ordering opens. A full list of planned availability for spring 2020 follows below.
