Wing and A Prayer Nursery

Nursery plants 2018

My small nursery with big hopes is open for business.  My regular hours are Sundays and Mondays, 9-3 beginning May 19, but am often here and would be glad to greet and spend time with anyone interested in learning more about my pollinator plants and about creating habitat for bees, butterflies, and other pollinators.  Except for Tuesdays and Thursdays, I am home most of the time.  Feel free to call me at (413) 634-5659 to make sure that I am home before you drop by .  Leave a message if I don’t answer; I tend to be outside a lot.  I’ll return your call as soon as possible.  You can come browse anytime; even when I’m not here .

I have been experimenting with growing native perennial plants from seed.  I have become highly concerned as I have learned more about the declining populations of some of our native bee and butterfly species.  I decided to create  a little nursery focused on plants that serve the needs of native pollinators by providing nectar, pollen and larval forage.

One of the main goals of the National Pollinator Research Action Plan is to “restore or enhance 7 million acres of pollinator habitat in the next 5 years.”  Every person can help in this effort by choosing native pollinator plants for their own landscapes.  My plants are organically grown, pesticide-free, and chosen for their usefulness to pollinators.  The plants average in price from $5- 10.   I would love to help you feed the pollinators on your land.  If anyone is involved in putting a pollinator garden in a public space, please ask me about donating some of my plants.  It would be a joy to support your efforts.

If anyone is interested in becoming one of 1,001 people who are willing to provide pollinator habitats in their own yards, ask me about my 1,001 Pollinator Gardens initiative.  Website coming soon!
