Native Plants

Whether you are trying to incorporate more native plants into your garden or you are completing a native plant restoration project, we can help!

We have a number of native species available at the nursery. Typically, if we don't have the exact plants you are interested in here on site, we can have them delivered from our growing acreage.

Environmental Stewardship

We were awarded "Merit Farm" status in 2013 by the Snohomish Conservation District in cooperation with the Washington State Department of Ecology.

Sustainable Growing

We don't spray. We weed pots by hand here. Our plants are not sitting in black pots on the concrete out in the hot sun. They are either grown in greenhouses or they are grown in our nutrient rich (non-chemical) soil.

High quality, not prices

If you're in Seattle, Bellevue, Renton, Kirkland, or other close-in suburbs, you'll likely have only shopped in city retail nurseries. Urban nursery prices are usually higher than Woods Creek's, often because of higher costs than here in rural Monroe.
