Plants for Spring 2020 Shipping

Welcome to the Food Forest Farm plant shop! Here you’ll find many of the plants we’ve been growing in the nursery since 2010. These plants will come to you healthy and ready for their new home.

All of our plants are multi-functional, that is, some perennial vegetables can be eaten by a human, or livestock (leaf hay), or be grown as mulch for biomass, and more! You can look at “All” of the plants, or filter with the navigation bar.

Perennial Vegetables: edible roots, leaves, shoots, buds, seeds that come from perennial herbs, shrubs, and trees

Fruit: edible sweet goodness

Leaf Hay: plants to grow and feed to livestock like cattle, sheep, goats and rabbits

Biomass: herbs, grasses, shrubs and trees that grow fast and can be cut and used as mulch, grow soil, fuel stoves and compost piles

Lot’s of opportunity to grow this 2 foot tall nitrogen fixing, running ground cover among shrubs or small trees in a moist food forest. Could do well along a pond edge or in a wetter part of your animal pasture. We’ve seen amazing success with this plant under willow plantings. Nice flowers and red yellow fall foliage. You’ll receive a handful of rhizomes with this order enough to establish a one meter plot.
