The Assortment List and the Manual
The Free Spirit Assortment List is an index for plants sold at the nursery and is updated and reprinted every March. As of 2015, this list will not be mailed out anymore but is only available as a download through your computer. Click HERE to view the latest edition. The list traditionally gets updated in late March when we finish our inventory.
Paper copies will remain available (free of charge) at the counter in the nursery.
The Free Spirit Manual, 3rd edition, is the most helpful growing guide available, describing both the needs and behaviours of plants in our specific climate. Many folks, from rookies to experts, have commented to us that our inexpensive, no-photos manual is very useful, which encouraged us to write a new edition in which we have expanded on the original information and introduced many more plants.
The Free Spirit Manual can be mailed to you for $ 14.00 (upon receipt of your cheque) or bought at the nursery for $ 12.00. Below is a sample page of the Manual –
If you want to see images to match the plants in the manual or list, they can almost all be found by googling the complete botanical name and adding “image”: i.e.: Digitalis parviflora image
In addition we will have a variety of plants available at the nursery that you will not find in either list. These might be either add-ons or only available in very limited numbers.
List and the Manual can also be paid for in stamps, dark
chocolate, free range eggs/chicken, wine, etc.
