News for 2016
Welcome at long last to our new website! I hope all my loyal customers of many years will enjoy the new site! It was a major goal of mine to make searching for the plants you are interested in much easier. You can search by common name alphabetically or by category which should make navigating the site much better. Please bear with me as the site is put to the test this spring, there are bound to be glitches here and there and I always appreciate our customers pointing out a problem that may have been overlooked!!
It has been a tremendously difficult 2 years since my 21 year old son died suddenly in August of 2014 and working with and being around all these healing plants has helped me on many different levels as I continue on carrying this grief over the loss of his vibrant spirit within me each day. My son was the tech guy for my business and even after he lived away from home would field slightly hysterical phone calls (though reluctantly) of one or another computer based emergency. He would calmly talk me through troubleshooting while sighing in disbelief at my pathetic computer skills! My son wore many hats, along with tech guy he was an excellent carpenter, gardener, Class 5 kayaker, river guide, snowboarder and avid outdoorsperson studying outdoor leadership, but his early homeschooled years were immersed in plants and his health throughout childhood was largely treated with Herbal Medicine. He would be so happy to see this web site up and running after such a long time in the works and I felt like I could not welcome you to my new website without a tribute to my wonderful son Lucius Coyote Robbi.
The winter of 2016 has been the first real Winter here on the Klamath River in 4 Years. As a gardener and lover of all plants and animals I cannot begin to tell you the gratitude I feel looking up at snow in the mountains and heavy rain pouring from the skies as our rivers swell. Even power outages over Christmas, and rock slides blocking our roads cannot squelch the collective sigh of relief to see our rivers running bank to bank and a snow pack that appears to be sticking. Spring is happening here with bulbs scenting the air, perennial herbs popping up all over and the nettles about ready to start eating. We no longer have goats and the goat pen was planted to blueberries and plans for planting out more herbs this spring are in the works. The greenhouse is bursting with seedlings at various sprouting sizes! We sold out of a number of perennials and are having to start from scratch please bear with us as we are firmly committed to shipping sturdy well rooted stock which may mean waiting a bit longer for your plants. Our stock is all grown and propagated out doors or in an unheated greenhouse and we use no consumptive artificial lighting either. Growing our plants this way results in exceptionally sturdy plants ready to plant in your outdoor environment. We will begin shipping orders with plants that are ready in Late March please email with any questions about your order and Thank you once again for supporting a small woman owned business that is truly a labor of love!
