The Cardno Native Plant Nursery can help bring your native
restoration project to life. We provide top quality native seed and
plant material, natural bioengineering solutions, and professional
consulting services that ensure our clients complete restoration
and native landscape projects are aesthetically pleasing and
Since our founding in 1994 as the JFNew Native Plant Nursery,
throughout our transition in 2015 to the Cardno Native Plant Nursery,
the location of our full-service, 130-acre operation and our dedicated,
experienced nursery team remain unchanged. To this day, we
continue to deliver the same exceptional customer service and quality
native seed and plant material.
Our commitment to project success starts with high-quality native
seed. Independent laboratories test our seed to determine the Pure
Live Seed (PLS) ratio, which measures purity and viability percentage
of a given seed lot. The process ensures that clients receive the
highest quality seed for native restoration and landscape projects.
Our commitment to project success continues with high quality native
plant material. We use mycorrhizal fungi, a natural root maximizer,
to enhance the roots of all our native plants. Mycorrhizal fungi helps
increase a plant’s resistance to disease, drought, and insect damage,
while increasing its ability to capture nutrients. This promotes a more
rapid establishment of plants in their new environment.
Our native seed production and plant-growing processes undergo
strict quality assurance and quality control procedures. A disciplined
plant grading system drives the production and delivery of the
highest-quality plants. Rigorous native plant tracking standards
ensure we provide the accurate location and genotype-specific seed
that is required.
Cardno also provides a full range of environmental consulting,
engineering and field services, allowing clients to turn to Cardno to
meet all of their restoration needs. Our customized, turn-key approach
to restoration design and implementation results in thriving natural
solutions that are delivered in a timely and cost-effective manner.
I would like to extend my appreciation to our valued customers and
our incredible nursery team. It is a privilege to work with you.

Note from the
Restoring a native landscape can be a challenging, time-consuming task. But by
understanding the different environments and the plant species that inhabit them,
you can recreate these ecosystems.
