Buy Native Plants

There are several well-established native plant nurseries in the Tennessee Valley as well as online native seed sellers.  Some nurseries also offer conventional ornamental plants in addition to native plants, and they are listed below, as well.   We hope the list below will grow over time as more landscapers and gardeners ask for trees, shrubs and plants native to this area.

The Barn Nursery, 1801 East 24th St. Place in Chattanooga TN (Telephone 423-2276) has a limited selection of pesticide-free native plants. Ask for Craig Walker, who can assist you with purchasing native plants.

Plants grown for and distributed by Monrovia, Riverbend Nursery and Wenke are reportedly pesticide-free. Look on the container for the name of these growers. However, when shopping for plants at stores and nurseries not on this list, it is important to inquire about pesticide applications and spraying done on site.

Note: There is currently no certification available for pesticide-free plants. We rely on the reported practices from growers and nurseries.

Remember — digging up wildflowers and native plants on state, federal, and private land is a crime, so we will not promote sellers of wild-crafted plant material.
