Retail Plant Sales
Many of our clients enjoy the convenience of ordering plants through us for delivery and layout in their gardens. This enables busy gardeners to focus their time on actually working in the garden rather than running from nursery to nursery looking for everything they need. Others, who love to shop but may not know exactly which plants are right for them, hire us as personal plant shoppers. Together, we visit the nurseries and hand-select just the right plants to fit each garden. Contact us now for all your garden supply needs.
Herbal Body Products
Our herbalist creations are all inspired by our connection with nature. Much of what we offer is derived from botanicals we grow intentionally on our properties or harvest ethically in the wild or in friends’ gardens. We try to be considerate of the footprint the materials we use has on our delicate planet. Because we try to be conscientious of our harvests, some of our offerings are available only seasonally or in smaller quantities. Find our salves, lotions, mists & more in our online Etsy shop, at Dandelion Botanicals shop in Seattle and at Sisters in Motion SFactorSF in San Francisco. If you are interested in carrying our products in your shop, please get in touch via our contact form.
Seasonal Garden Sitters
Even DIYers need a little help now & again, especially during summer vacation season. If you’re concerned that taking off for a little R&R means your garden may fry under the summer sun or your veggies may go to waste (or give up the ghost) while you’re getting away from it all, hire us for periodic garden drop-in check-ups to help your garden stay alive while you recharge on your trip.
*** Currently, we are limiting our seasonal sitting services to the Skagit/Whatcom/Anacortes region. ***
Contact us early to get on the calender as our seasonal schedule fills up fast. Then, get away knowing your garden is in good hands!
