New 100% NY Native Plant Nursery Opens.
Fiddlehead Creek Farm and Native Plant Nursery.
7381 St. Rt 40, Hartford, NY (Washington County NE of Hudson Falls)
We are very excited to be having our grand opening this upcoming weekend. We will be open Sat, Sun, and Monday from 10-5 on May 29-31 (Memorial Day weekend). We hope you will be able to join us!
We are proud to be the first nursery in New York that carries 100% native plants for New York State. Most of our plants are also native to the Adirondack Park. It isn’t always easy to find out what plants are native at many local garden centers – so we have taking the guesswork out of adding native plants to your landscape for you.
We carry herbaceous perennials, grasses and sedges, groundcovers, ferns, wetland and aquatic plants, and a large selection of shrubs. Most of our plants work well for shoreline buffers along streams or lakes and also for rain gardens. Everything we carry is hardy to zone 4 or colder, so you don’t have to worry about buying a plant that won’t come back next year if we have a cold winter.
The full list of plants we have available can be viewed here.
In addition to a great selection of plants native to New York State, we will have hamburgers and hotdogs on the grill and a raffle to win some free plants to get your own native plant garden started. You will want to be sure to check out the shop as well – where we still have some of our NY maple syrup from this winter that we collect from our maple trees the old fashioned way with buckets – and birdboxes for a variety of different birds – from chickadees to wood ducks. Emily’s original nature photography – which can be found in local stores such as Trees in Bolton and Kismet in Glens Falls, will also be avialable for sale in the shop – from framed and matted prints, to coasters, notecards, and tile trivets.
Please help spread the word and be sure to come on by to help us celebrate! We will be open the rest of the summer from 10-5 on Saturday and Sunday through Columbus Day Weekend and at other times by appointment – so if you can’t make it this weekend – come on by another time.
