My curios search of interesting nurseries, plant wizards and wild folks in the Pacific Northwest, to connect, collaborate and exchange seeds, plants and knowledge with, continues... I found another epic place today @xeraplants.
Xera focus on climate adapted plants, such as dry tolerant plants suitable for Portland's very hot and dry summers. To have full control over the quality, hardiness and the variety of species, they have there own production nursery outside of Portland. Combining production with retail service, knowing from my own experience of how much work that is, is very impressive. Specially since Xera nursery is so well taken care of. Flawless I would say...
I had the pleasure to talk with the founder and owner Paul, whom among his fellow crew seem to hold a great deal of skill, experience and knowledge on how to select suitable plants for a given location (habitat/biome). We share the same basic understanding for a successful garden; match the plants with their natural and appropriate growing conditions.
Paul also wrote the book "Gardening in the Pacific Northwest" which I look forward to read. #gardeninginthepacificnorthwest
Today was a little step further into the plant kingdom of The Pacific Northwest. And this time with a new found gardening friend from Sweden! How wonderful to share both culture and language, mostly around plants, with Anna Kullgren @ovanna11
for a while, thanks Anna for a great day!
At this moment I'm hired to restore a beautiful garden in Portland, before the property is going on sale. If you have any other cool garden projects, reach out, I'm knowledgeable, avaliable and easy to co-operate with. I also offer some services without costs as part of me learning more about the special conditions and plants of this region.
