Don in the permaculture group asked for some plant resources, so I put together this list of places that I get seeds and plants from. I'm sure there are more great resources out there and I'd love to know about them.
Paonia, 719 2nd St. 527-3522
Our local source and amazing selection of soil amendments.
They carry seedlings of many permaculture plants grown by Wind Clearwater.
CSU extension seedling program:
Best for bulk bare root trees/shrubs. Must buy in groups of 50.
University of Idaho Center for Forest Nursery and Seedling Research
Another good and inexpensive source of seedling trees/shrubs, these can be bought in groups of 5 and are not bare root.
Western Native Seed
Best source for seed of Colorado and regional native trees, shrubs grasses, wildflowers.
I consistently go to them for Yarrow, Purple Prairie Clover, drought tolerant lawn mixes.
Peaceful Vally Farm Supply
Huge variety of seeds and supplies.
I especially like their cover crop options and innoculants to ensure that nitrogen fixing plants fix as much as possible.
High Country Gardens
A little pricy and focused on ornamentals, but a great selection of regionally appropriate plants.
Their shipping methods are excellent.
Romence Gardens and Greenhouses
Not regional, but a broad selection of plants, though also focused on ornamentals.
They have the best plant shipping technique I have ever seen.
Oikos Tree Crops
Focused on interesting edible tree species and varieties.
Most of their plants are not regionally adapted and I was not happy with their shipping methods of live plants.
But, since they have rare and interesting stuff like Yellowhorn and Burr/gamble oak crosses I have ordered from them.
Suggest ordering from them only in the late winter when their plants are dormant.
Trees of Antiquity
Huge selection of heirloom fruit and nut trees.
Nice selection of seeds, seems like they often have unusual things that I can't find other places.
I also grow Goji Berry seedlings and have them available for sale.
