Master Plant List Elk Meadow Farm & Nursery
Deary, ID 83823 U.S.A

When we first moved to our farm in Deary, Idaho Dec. 24, 2008 we were so excited. “What grows here?” we’d ask the farmers and locals. Mostly when we told them what we wanted to plant they said, “Oh, that won’t grow here.”

Hmm. Being a bit long in the tooth (stubborn) that didn’t sit so well with me. Now I’m all about making a difference in our world. I figured it would help others if I figured this out, so I ordered a couple thousand dollars worth of seed from about 20 different companies, placed ads for cuttings and plant donations, my clients donated money to the project at various times to purchase ‘mother plants’ and we went to work. Yep, this represents quite a bit of money, love and time. Michael (my husband) and I are not horticulturists. We don’t have a degree in this. We just like to grow things.

We hope you will benefit from our hard work and plant something to make our area ‘food secure’. We’re well on our way to completing our initial Food Forest and Permaculture Orchard. As one of our mentors, Geoff Lawton says, “Nail it then scale it.” As of 2018 we’re scaling it out past our 6 1/2 acre fenced area and starting to plant items in the forest. On the boundary lines we’ll be planting a variety of habitat that will provide food for people, insects, bees and the wildlife but first we’re thinning trees, building swales and extending our beloved hugelkultures.

This hugelkulture is 5 years old.

This is a list of the plants that will grow here most of which don’t need pampering (except dahlias which need to be dug up each year if you want to grow them). We were really surprised that tulips grew as well as they do here. I figured the mice would eat the bulbs in the wintertime, but they seem to be doing just great. Did you know you can eat tulip and lily bulbs/tubers? We are learning so much!
