Taylor Creek’s local genotype seed is nursery-grown in beds started from seeds collected ethically on native habitat remnants. Although our nursery can provide a range of genotypes from throughout the U.S., it is Taylor Creek’s practice to produce seed and plants most often from the vicinity of our nurseries. We track origins diligently and carry more than one genotype, for biodiversity propagation as well as customer service. And, we are pleased to offer custom growing of ultra-local seed. We will also grow plants from nearly any eco-region on demand for clients whose projects require them. Because we are committed to a “first, do no harm” mindset, our plants are nursery grown; it’s not our practice to wild-collect live plants."   Click here for a list of their offerings and/or for availability.
