About Native Plants in Claremont
Native Plants in Claremont
is a nursery devoted to the increased awareness and restoration of Ontario's native plants and their habitats, growing a diversity of quality native plants and to providing an enhanced retail experience for our customers. Native Plants in Claremont was opened in 2006. Proprietor Karen Abrahams and husband Rob operate the nursery with knowledgeable employees and share the love of Ontario's natural areas and native flora with native plant gardeners across the Greater Toronto Area.
Duffins Creek flows through our 15 acre nursery property, conveniently located in Ontario's Greenbelt land in picturesque Claremont (north Pickering).
At Native Plants in Claremont
we specialize in seed grown native perennial wildflowers, grasses and shrubs. We harvest seed locally and sustainably, work to establish our own stock based on distinct populations, and always search for new sites to prevent inadvertent selection within our plant stock. Our nursery’s Integrated Pest Management (IPM) practices help plants grow and stay healthy naturally. We regularly monitor plant health and diagnose problems. Our IPM strategy focuses on preventative measures. When necessary we intervene to control pests and disease using organic and biodegradable products. We supply plants to conservation organizations, wholesale customers such as landscapers and nurseries and to the public for their home gardens.
Visit us for plants for your home or community gardens, schools grounds, garden centres, restoration plantings and landscape customers.
New Gardeners and Native Plant Enthusiasts are welcome! See you in Claremont!
