Grown For Life in Alberta
The Bow Point Nursery concept is unique to Alberta. We use sustainable practices to grow plants designed specifically for your landscape. We collect seed locally for the hardiest most vigorous plants possible. The seedlings are grown at the nursery in outside seed beds or in plug containers which are stored outside for the winter. This gives us the best possible plants to line out into our fields that grow on to become landscape sized material for your yard!
We grow in the soil in our fields (as opposed to container grown). We bare-root our plants in the spring and containerize for ease of transportation. Our soil is left in our field to be used for an infinite number of crops. We have an active compost operation which provides us with the organic material to maintain our soils to be optimum quality. We do not irrigate our fields. We have found that the native plants that like to grow here don’t need additional watering. This gives you a stronger, less pot bound plant which will adapt to your conditions quickly and with less maintenance
