Plants


Fireweed offers a diverse selection of rare and hard to find medicinal herb plants, culinary herbs, native plants, permaculture plants, and plants for attracting bees and beneficial insects.

Our methods

Our herb plants are propagated and grown at our farm using only environmentally sustainable and earth-conscious growing methods. For our growing medium we use certified organic potting soil and our own sterile farm compost rich in natural organic matter. We propagate from our own farm-saved seed, and when starting new varieties use certified organic seed. We use only natural organic fertilizers such as kelp extract, fish emulsion, and compost tea. Absolutely NO chemical fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides are used on the farm.
