Services provided by Elkhorn Native Plant Nursery
Our main focus is to grow high quality California native plants. We sell our plants to everybody that is interested in using native plants and native grasses. We sell the plants wholesale to (retail)nurseries, brokers, landscape contractors, landscape architects and public agencies. We are also open to the public on most Fridays for retail sales.
Are you able to plan your landscape or revegetation project well in advance? If so, taking advantage of our contract-grow service is the way to ensure that the plants you need will be ready on time in the container sizes you desire.
We encourage you to contact us as soon as possible. Many people underestimate the growing time of native plants. If you do want to begin a contract with us, be prepared to have the following information available:
- The names of the plants you would like to order
- The container size you are interested in
- The quantities you need
- The date you require the plants
After discussing details of the project we will then provide you with a written bid. If you accept our bid we require a 25% deposit. (For larger contracts we might charge a higher percentage.) We also require your signature on our sales agreement indicating acceptance of our terms and conditions.
We encourage you to pick up your order but can deliver plants to you as well. We charge a minimum of $60.00 or 7%. So if you order for a $1000.00 worth of plants you pay $70.00 etcetera. Smaller orders will be combined until we have a full truck going your way. Plan ahead if you want a delivery.
We can collect site specific plant species for your contract grow if you desire. We also offer botanical surveys if you want to know what plants you have growing on a particular site. We work with several botanists on a partime basis. Renowned local botanist Randy Morgan will come out to your location in the Monterey Bay Area.
Restoration and Landscape Design
If you need to restore a particular site please give us a call. We can come out to the site and assess what needs to be done. This might lead to a contract grow in certain cases. While we don't normally install home gardens, we do have a C27 landscape contractor license and are willing to discuss your needs. We have excellent relationships with many landscape architects and professional landscaping firms. We will be happy to recommend or subcontract these talented specialists.
For general garden consultation and plant identification we can visit different locations. Since we have a very small staff, please plan ahead and book an appointment in advance. We will charge you an hourly fee, starting when we leave the nursery and ending when we are back.
Everybody will be charged retail prices unless they fall in the wholesale category and can proof this. Plant prices vary by species and container size and other fees will vary as well, depending on the project. Please call us to discuss your needs and we will do our best to help you have a successful project.
