Ontario Native Plants is an online plant retailer, dedicated to supplying native trees, shrub, grasses and perennials to Ontario gardeners. 

We opened in 2017 as a sister business to a wholesale nursery that is family run and has been producing and selling top quality seedlings for over 50 years. Ontario Native Plants was formed out of the desire to provide the public with the same high-quality native plants. 

All the plants grown at our nursery in Hamilton come from Ontario source identified and genetically unique seed. We have chosen to only sell our plants online as a convenient  means for our customers to have access to the native plants they desire for their garden. At this time visiting and pick up at the wholesale yard is not available.  

Currently, Ontario Native Plants does not have a phone line with staff to receive calls. If you have any questions regarding our business or the plants we sell please email us at [email protected] and we will respond within a timely manner. We value each and every one of our customers and strive for satisfaction with regards to the product received. 

Please note, we only ship our plants within Ontario. 

We look forward to supplying you with native plants for your garden!
