Everything Ecoregions

Where specialty nurseries like Seven Bends are not available, dedicated gardeners may spend countless hours scouring garden stores for native plants, often depending on a label printed with the word “NATIVE” in bold letters.

Riparian Buffers

These wooded edges of the river are home to a wide array of animals that occasionally grant us a glimpse of their lives. These wooded edges serve us so well; they are habitats for native wildlife, protect against erosion, and overall, contribute to the clean water we recreate in and survive off of! This important habitat is called a riparian buffer!

Most of us who plant native want to ensure our native gardens continue to provide our native wildlife with these necessary resources even through the tough winter months. So how is fall gardening with natives different?

Lets Get Something Straight

Project Name

You may have heard that here at Seven Bends Nursery we have a “straight species promise”. In other words, we not only are a native-only nursery, but we also do not carry “cultivars” or “nativars”.  Now, you may be asking “What is a straight species?” And, “Why is our promise a big deal?” If this is you, then read on!
