We grow almost
everything we sell at the nursery – from
our vegetable starts and flower baskets on up to our largest
Wild Hearts Nursery owner, Dan Kirkmire, is passionate about
growing plants. To ensure that our plants are healthy and
hardy, Dan grows the majority of our stock here at the nursery
or in our fields just down the road. In the spring, trees
and shrubs are hand dug from our fields and grown in pots
until they are ready for sale.
Our greenhouse work begins early each year. Our staff plants
a wide variety of vegetable and flower seeds, creates beautiful
hanging baskets, and transplants thousands of perennials during
the very busy month of March. As soon as the weather warms
up, the perennials are moved out doors to harden off. The
annuals and vegetables are moved to the retail area in May.
We grow our native plants from local seed or seedlings whenever
possible. We work with local suppliers and we are always looking
for top quality products for our customers.
Unlike the majority of box stores, we DO NOT bring in trees
and shrubs from California or other mild growing areas. Plant
hardiness is very important to us!
growing methods are labor intensive, but the results are
healthy, hardy plants for our customers.
