Elkhorn Native Plant Nursery is located on three of the 1,100 acres that make up Elkhorn Ranch in Moss Landing California. We are about 1.5 miles inland from the ocean, overlooking Elkhorn Slough, an internationally recognized location for migratory birds.
Elkhorn was established in 1992 with the goal of producing California native grass seed to use in restoration projects on Elkhorn Ranch. From this small beginning, grew a commercial seed business producing seed for restoration work.
We diversified into contract-growing containerized nursery stock for restoration projects in 1994. Consultation services were added, and landscape installation and design quickly followed in 1996 to make the nursery a one-stop shop for both ornamental landscaping and restoration projects.
In the last 5 years we have expanded our range of native plants to include a wide variety of selections for better performance in the ornamental landscape.
