Ohio Native Plant Nursery


Nodding Onion Gardens

Our family run native plant nursery is, located in Columbia Station, southwest of Cleveland, Ohio. We propagate and raise a variety of wildflowers that are suitable for either: rain, prairie, woodland or pollinator gardens. To encourage diversity in our stock the majority of our plants are started from seed.


Our Methods

We are proud of the fact that we are implementing holistic agricultural practices. Future goals include becoming a certified urban organic farm.


Our Vision  

That small backyard wildflower gardens become the norm in the Cleveland, Ohio area. Collectively, these gardens will contribute to an improved ecosystem not only for us but for the wildlife we share it with.

Last Market for 2015 Season

Saturday, July 11, 2015
will be our last Frostville Famer’s Market for this season.

We would like to thank everyone who helped make this season an unbelievable success! We never expected our inventory to dwindle at the speed in which it has. In an effort to remain true to our original mission of providing the Cleveland, Ohio area with high quality, organically raised Ohio Native Plants we are stepping back and concentrating on preparing stock for next season. This will also give us time to finalize several family responsibilities that have been directed our way, and of course time to ride!
