Propagation

(Assorted plug crops in our computer-controlled propagation house.)

Our move to Langley, BC in 2004 allowed for the construction of a modern propagation facility that has resulted in a dramatic quality improvement to our propagation. We were one of the first nurseries to become P. ramorum-free certified

NATS Nursery's expert team produces over 300 crops, including over 200 native plants, 18 types of hardy ferns, and 75+ groundcovers, totalling over 3 million plants annually. Please browse the catalogue pages to select a product or learn more about the plants we grow.

OUR PASSION

The unique and highly skilled team at N.A.T.S. is committed to providing the best quality Pacific Northwest plants possible to the global market, whether it be for restoration, reclamation, reforestation or sustainable gardening. We strive to help our customers in their search for the right plant for the right place and to share our personal passion for plants and improving the world in which we live.

OUR MANDATE

NATS is committed to being a sustainable company.  We have adopted many policies to that effect:

  • We grow plants which sequester carbon, produce oxygen, prevent soil erosion, provide food and habitat for local wildlife, moderate climates and absorb stormwater runoff. (They are also very beautiful to look at!) 
  • Recycling of materials such as plastics, metals, compost, paper. Even our office building was pre-loved and brought to this site, as were our old cold frame greenhouses.
  • Reduced car use.  Many staff carpool to work, one cycles to work, others live within close proximity.
  • We utilize post-consumer paper in the office and in our marketing materials
  • Our property retains runoff and nutrients in a detention pond to protect the integrity of neighbouring salmon bearing streams
  • Plants are continually being trialed and observed for their green roof performance on our living roof gazbeo
  • Air travel, which is kept to a minimum, is offset or neutralized by
    carbon credits from Gold Standard projects.
  • Information is made available to all staff on a regular basis
    to maintain awareness about current affairs and to make conservation a team challenge.
  • We are also in the process of calculating our Carbon Footprint ....
