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

Giant Miscanthus Grass


Giant Miscanthus Grass


A sterile hybrid of Miscanthus sinensis and Miscanthus sacchariflorus. It can grow to heights of more than 13 feet in one growing season (from the third season onwards). We grow it as a biomass plant, wind break, and screen. As for biomass, giant miscanthus is one of the best, trials in Illinois, had yields 10–15 tonnes per acre. You’ll receive a few rhizomes with each order enough to establish a one meter area after three years.
