*A note to our loyal customers:
Setting a minimum order policy was not an easy decision. Practically, we’ve found that operating as a small-order retailer has presented significant challenges to our conservation business. As a result, St. Williams Nursery is now focusing on wholesale stock production for large scale ecological restoration and biodiversity conservation. Still, we very much want to support biodiversity restoration needs of all kinds, shapes, and sizes; therefore, we’re continuously building relationships with local Ontario retailers to supply more St. Williams native plants directly to you.
St. Williams Nursery retailers & garden centres:
We invite you to visit the Garden Centers and browse what they have available. The listed centres operate independently of St. Williams Nursery and are not pick up locations for orders placed through St. Williams Nursery. Prices at garden centres are subject to retail mark up, as the prices listed on our website are for wholesale purchases.
