Our plant list is not fully updated for 2016--- new plants are added to the list often, please check back

All of the plants we offer are planted in McEnroe Organic’s excellent perennial mix or potting soil. Most are from Certified-Organic seed, or have been divided or propagated from plants growing on the farm or in gardens where I work. They have been routinely fertilized with organic fish & kelp from Fedco Organic Grower’s Supply in Maine. We have never bought any new plastic pots, instead chosing to reuse since there are so many already in circulation, and they are not readily recycleable. We nurture our plants with lots of care & Love xoxo

*Check out the BTTG Links page in the section “Seeds & Organic Growing Supplies” for a list of great LOCAL nurseries that carry OMRI Certified organic products- potting soil, fish & seaweed emulsion, Neem oil etc.*

Kindly Note: These plants are guaranteed to grow in your garden under conditions of normal & reasonable care (not neglect!) If they don’t after two weeks, we’ll replace them with another of the same species (though we won’t always have the same variety).
