Welcome to our “Nursery News” page where we’ll keep you up-to-date on the extra special nursery items currently at the Corner Nursery. This is not a full list of everything we offer. Having doubled the nursery size from last year, there are bound to be surprises! If you have questions, call Rob, Peri, or Neil at 360-732-0107 or email the nursery. We look forward to helping you grow a fantastic garden!
About our Nursery:
Our nursery specializes in healthy plants that are beneficial to pollinators, deer-resistant, cold-hardy, native, drought-tolerant and/or shade-loving as those are major points of interest to our community. We offer only “clean” plants that are free of chemical sprays, neonicotinoids, or growth inhibitors. All of our local plant starts come from Midori or Red Dog farms and are certified organic.
A lot of attention and care goes into our plants, so no matter how long we’ve had something in stock, you can trust it will not be root-bound or malnourished. We base our nursery plant care on the Biodynamic Calendar, which means we have regular days we tend specifically to roots, flowers, or leaves in an attempt to improve plant vigor, disease tolerance, adaptability, and production.
Our nursery staff are lovers of plants with backgrounds in organic farming, native landscapes, herbal medicine, and pollinator care. Please feel free to ask them plenty of questions — what they don’t know, they’ll be excited to investigate!
We are happy to place special orders for you if there is something you are looking for grown by one of our vendors which we do not carry. We also offer deals on large purchases from retail stock, and we supply wholesale to landscapers and other gardening professionals. This applies to all soil amendments we carry. If you have a question just ask!

Warning about possible invasive in Black Gold Potting Soil – It has come to our attention that seeds of the parasitic vine Dodder may be present in some Black Gold potting soil. If you bought any Black Gold (or bought a plant planted in Black Gold), you might have inadvertently taken some home. We encourage you to keep your eyes open for a bright yellow or orange thin, threadlike vine coming up in your garden. It looks like Silly String.
This wily vine grows from seed, does not root underground, and cannot photosynthesize enough sugar to support itself. It seeks a favorable plant to draw nutrients from, wraps itself around the host, and attaches to the host's vascular system via adventitious roots called haustoria. If an appropriate host plant can not be found or reached within several days, the vine will perish.
Fret not, for as long as you catch it before it flowers and sets seed, this vine is an annual and can be pulled and disposed of safely. If seeds have already formed, please dispose of them in the trash. The seeds are incredibly hardy and can survive extreme temps due to their hard, protective coat.
We will continue to offer Black Gold potting soil, as this is otherwise one of our favorite potting soils. Soils are living communities, and there's always the chance of unexpected seeds coming in with foreign inputs of all kinds. Black Gold has been made aware of our concerns.
