Not So Hollow Farm – Perennials for Pollinators Native Plants of Ontario Canada

As part of our ever increasing list of Native Plants of Ontario Canada we are now stocking a selection of  perennials. These plants are specifically chosen to promote pollinators and as we like to say:

“Passionate people perpetually providing provincially propagated pollinator preferred plants” ….. for a positive planet




If there is a particular plant you are looking for that is Native to Ontario and is not on our website please contact us and we will help source it for you.

No matter how small your efforts are every bit helps. We all need to do our part to help create habitat, links and corridors of vegetation and food for our Native pollinators. Yes we have Milkweed. Four kinds actually.
