About Morning Sky Greenery
At Morning Sky Greenery we grow the vast majority of our prairie plants from seed. We take care to produce high quality native prairie flowers and grasses that adapt easily to harsh environmental conditions.
Our native plants are not heavily forced for quick sales and mass market. Rather, they are carefully grown; hand watered & fertilized, acclimated, and even overwintered to ensure their healthy growth when placed in a natural setting. We grow our plants using integrated pest management (IPM), which means that we use a variety of methods at our production facility to control insects and diseases. We do not rely on highly toxic chemical pesticides and herbicides to grow our plants.
We grow our prairie plants in a variety of containers. The advantage of these container-grown plants is that they may be transplanted in the spring, summer, and fall. They may be held in their own containers until you have the time to plant them!
Most of our native plants are available as bedding plants in 6 or 12-packs, or in 4-inch, 6-inch, and 1 quart pots. Also, we offer plants in larger containers. Plants in larger containers cannot be shipped via UPS, but are available at our nursery. If there is a particular size you are interested in, please call for availability and price. To check the available sizes of various plants, look in the product column of the plant list in the printed catalog or shop online to see size availability and prices.
Providing quality plants which have a beneficial impact on our environment is our priority. We guarantee all seed and plants will be true to name.
Morning Sky Greenery offers exclusively nursery grown stock. No plants are dug from the wild, with the exception of a limited number of plants acquired from rescue operations.
Most of our seeds are either collected from our own nursery stock, or with landowner permission from local prairie plants. We are careful not to deplete any area of its natural source of seed. Seeds we cannot collect ourselves are purchased from reputable wildflower and grass producers. Specific information about the origin of any of our seed and plant stock is available upon request.
We pride ourselves on our individual customer service and are happy to work with you to find the right plants for your specific needs. We encourage you to call or e-mail us with your questions.
Morning Sky Greenery is certified with the Minnesota Department of Agriculture. We are a member of The Minnesota Wildflower & Grass producers Association, The Minnesota State Horticultural Society, and The North Dakota Nursery and Greenhouse Association.
