Growing Native Plants from Seed

Growing native plants from seed requires preparation and research. Seeds of most species need to be treated before they will germinate because of dormancy. A cold moist period (stratification) is probably the most common pre-germination treatment. Many seeds need multiple treatments, such as a cold moist period and exposure to light (milkweeds & asters). Seeds with a waxy covering (sweet gale) or thick seed coats (black tupelo) need to be roughed-up (scarification)to allow for water penetration. Please refer to Seed Treatments for information on growing the seeds we sell.

Native Haunts Seed-to-Seed Initiative

Pursuant to the Native Haunts commitment to sustainability and prudent resource management, we have begun the Seed-to-Seed initiative. The goal here is to eliminate collection of seed from wild plants, and/or to minimize it. Seed is initially collected from wild plants, grown out, and in a few seasons (perennials anyway; shrubs and trees are a bit longer) these plants are mature enough to start producing their own seed. It is this seed that we now offer for sale and use for propagating- no need to pillage from wild plants every year.

Important Notes

-If there is seed you would like, but is not on our list, just ask, we are always open to special requests.

-All seeds are collected in Maine unless noted.

-Seed is not available in large quantities unless pre-collection orders are submitted.

-Nomenclature (naming) follows Flora Novae Angliae, 2011 by Arthur Haines and the New England Wildflower Society. Synonyms are included when appropriate for previous names that folks may be more familiar with. Of course, these are the same plants, but with new names to try and learn. Botanists love to change names around on us, but it is usually for good reason. Although botanical reshuffling has happened since the time of Linneaus, now-a-days it's due to new findings at the molecular level which reveals relationships that may not have been so obvious using traditional classification systems.
