Native Plants in Claremont
4965 Westney Road Pickering (Claremont) ON
We are a nursery devoted to the increased awareness and restoration of Ontario's native plants and their habitats. We supply the perennials, shrubs and grasses indigenous to our province. We supply plants for both retail customers and wholesale customers such as landscapers and nurseries. New customers and native plant enthusiasts are always welcome. We are not in the business to practice resource extraction but rather for resource improvement. We feel that our techniques improve the productivity of current native plant populations. As such, we only harvest seed according to SER guidelines, work to establish our own stock based on at least four distinct populations, and always search for new sites to prevent inadvertent selection within our plant stock. This is much more work than other nurseries do, but it lets us assure you true, non-selected, Ontario plant stock and the best experience and advice for your needs.

North American Native Plant Society
Gives information about what native plants are and there place in the home, urban and rural landscape.
This organization has helped people who are challenging their local "no weed" bylaws and some cases are written about:
As the website says: "Dedicated to the Study, Conservation, Cultivation & Restoration of North America's Native Flora. NANPS was founded in 1984 by a small group of dedicated conservationists as the Canadian Wildflower Society. As our American membership grew, and acknowledging that plants don't recognize political boundaries, we changed our name to the North American Native Plant Society in 1999.  In 1985 we founded North America's foremost native plant magazine: Wildflower.  The original magazine ceased publication in 2005, but it's name lives on under the editorship of Texas's Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Centre.  In place of Wildflower, NANPS continues to publish a 16 page quarterly, The Blazing Star".

Seed Sources

(printable list)

mostly local, many organic, and/or heirloom vegetable, flower and herb seeds; some fruit trees and shrubs; seed saving and exchange.
Some places on the list do not handle organically raised seeds exclusively, but seem to me to be trying sincerely to live more lightly on the earth. All are  independent companies, or organizations.   
 Happy gardening!
