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.
