Plants will vary in price and container size Some will only be available during dormancy – late Fall or early Spring — and will be updated this winter. Seed or plant exchanges are always welcome!  With new postal price increases I have decided to curtail further mail-order business. Simply to much time to update all the items and too little feedback.   Far easier to sell locally and at flower shows.

All plants can be picked up at my place given notice. Hope to see you soon. The Google Map.

Herb Senft (still a Sequimian and former Skyline Nursery) wishes you Happy Gardening in 2016. Purchases made through PayPal will be refunded!

  1. I very much enjoyed what you wrote about the Ginkgo tree. I have been interested in them and read some on line. I had not heard them called duck foot tree—and you are so right the leaves do look like ducks feet!!! Since I am very fond of ducks and all birds —-having read this name makes me want even more to have one in my yard. Lovely photo’s on this site. Thank you–Jan

  2. Hi Herb,

    I am new to gardening,planting, the whole works! Fascinated and eager to learn and train my “thumb” to be green! My question is…is there a ground covering that looks similar to the Jovibarba heuffelii-Beacon Hill?
    That would be suitable to our Zone?

    Thank you in advance!

    • Hi,
      I have edited your post to give an answer to it.
      You would have nothing to worry about. Its ancestors are native to modern day Croatia and parts of the Southern Alps. USDA Zones 4 – 9, and to Zone 3 with protection. Sempervivum would be hardy to Zn. 3. Both would appreciate good drainage. No clay soils. Most sedums would also be a good bet. I have two that might work.

      The Jovibarba is more a specimen plant and does not spread as would the others. I do not view it as a “groundcover.”

  3. We called your telephone but it is no longer a working number. Then we stopped by your address on Saturday but it did not appear to have anyone there. We had hoped to connect with you.
    We moved to Sequim in November, 2015 and hoped to learn more from you regarding plants and landscaping.
    I read your blog and if I understand correctly, you are ill and slowing down your plant business. I am so sorry to learn that. I hope to connect with you just to make an introduction if you are well enough to share your wisdom etc regarding the plants in Sequim. Thank you very much.

    • Hi Lou and Steve,

      Am still alive and recovering. New phone number is 683 – 8964. Land line only.

      Give me a call sometime. Am busy fixing up the place and giving the plant thing a rest.


    Oh boy, am I excited to find you! This summer I moved from near Joyce to a 2.5 acre parcel in Agnew — horticultural culture shock!

    I’ve got severely depleted soil which seems to have little ability to retain moisture, which currently is a nearly empty field with some patches of bare dirt. I desperately want to restore it to being a healthy & self-sustaining meadow, ideally with some appropriate trees — I stumbled upon your site while doing a search of “garry oak.”

    I know very little about how to go about doing this. Is there any chance that this project might interest you, or anyone you know?

    • I have deleted the email address but would respond by saying any of the OLD Mother Earth News, Rodell books , Scott and Helen Nearing, Wendell Berry and a slew of others.
      Permaculture: A Designers’ Manual by Bill Mollison is another great book and to get another picture read the old classic ‘The Egg and I.

      It takes FOREVER to improve soil but it can be done with tilling in Clovers, Annual Rye, Soybean etc. Alfalfa might also be tried as it has very deep roots and may help by getting to a lower water level. Be it Crimson Clover or other crops the bees will love you for turning this soil into a healthier place. I would be very cautious about buying topsoil or even composted material from some of the sources be it city or local.
      Most are made by shredding diseased dumped plants that carry bacteria, fungi, virus’s and other pathogens. I doubt any amount of composting can guarantee a clean product. Much better to buy plain old fir bark, alder bark, manure and make your own clean product.
