Retail nurseries rely on wholesale nurseries for many of their plants (wholesalers are an unavailable resource to non-retail buyers like the Gardens).  To fulfill our goal of hosting over 1,000 native species we have been greatly assisted by:

Cities, counties, states and the Federal government constantly denude the Northwest of its native plants (if you look at what is done, versus the rhetoric).  For liability concerns they cut down trees, plant non natives by roadways to eliminate native insects/food sources to control road kill, and plant fast growing, deep rooted non-natives for erosion control.  This joins the NW’s industrial deforestation with loss of top soil, asphalting, plantings of agricultural and ornamental crops, and a population increase (worldwide, 35% of vertebrate weight is carried by humans) of historic proportions.  Quietly our native plants disappear, even though we have only ~1,500 unique species.

The NW has a million rural residencies; if 1 in 10 planted a few native species in their front and back yards, individuals, not the government, could stem the tide of these extinctions.
