Yesterday we were granted our nursery license, meaning that we have been inspected and are now clear to propagate and sell plants in the great state of Alabama.
The name of the nursery is Alabama Food Forests, which will carry many of the same plants we used to stock in my Florida Food Forests nursery.
Currently, we are growing:
“Robert Young” bamboo
Rosa rugosa (rose hip) rose
…and we are working on many more species.
We are not selling from our place; instead, we’ll be selling at various locations in Lower Alabama – to be announced.
Sugar cane? True yam?
And will you be putting warnings on the tropical milkweed so any purchasers south of your areas know to NOT overwinter the plants to spread OE to the next generation of monarchs? Thank you, David
I never even heard of that – I’m looking it up.
Will you be shipping?
Maybe a little.
PLEASE sell me some Comfrey! I’m brokenhearted to say that the Comfrey that Old Alabama Gardener gave me didn’t make it a couple of years ago, due to heat/too much sun. I found a nice, shady place for this next round.
You’ve been on a Comfrey tear lately, so, step up to the plate, DTG!
Your thumbs WILL always be green!
Comfrey doesn’t like me much!
Will you be selling online? Hopefully!
I don’t drive, so much/most of my shopping is done this way.
By the way, thank you for introducing me to the Douay-Rheims translation of the Bible. =-)
Thank you. It is very different.
Sooooo coool! This is a great way to make a little money and help yer neighbors! I’ll be standing by woth tuning fork in hand! :p
Just hoping to get some mulberry seeds or seedling sometime!
A black walnut tree would be sooo practical! I just tried a black walnut cake for the first time and they are just overwhelmingly flavorful! But impossibly expensive. I think it was $8 for six ounces.
Let me know if you want free basil seedlings!
Please give Aplin Farms in Slocomb a call. My favorite farm, run by three generations of old farmers, amazing Christian man, Mr. Aplin. Maybe they will sell some of your nursery plants!
That is a pretty long haul for us, but thank you.
Now I want your take on stevia! Seems like there’s every bit as much hype around for that as for comfrey. It’s just stevia hasn’t been known as long in this country.
Oh and I second the mail order nursery idea.
I don’t really like sweet things all that much, but I keep a couple of stevia plants in the garden. They’re nice when you take a leaf, add another leaf of chocolate mint, then chew them together.
Looking forward to it. Very interested in the Elderberry and Rosa rugosa.
Hope you can come to a Lowes towards mid-eastern AL.
Out of curiosity, roughly how big is that area you have under fabric?
Maybe 1000 ft2
I want to know more about my Lord. I don’t recall hearing about Douay-Rheims translation of the Bible. Please point me in the proper direction if you could.
The Douay-Rheims is an English translation based on St. Jerome’s Vulgate, originating during the counter-Reformation. The King James bible borrowed from it. It also contains all 73 books, instead of just the 66 of the King James, which was of interest to me. It’s an uncommon translation in Protestant circles; however, I have already read through the Bible in the NKJV, the ESV, the NIV and probably the King James, so I went further afield this year after a commenter here recommended the DR translation. I hope that helps.
