About Bow Point Nursery

Our mission statement, vision and philosophy is Growing for Life in Alberta

The Bow Point Nursery concept is unique to Alberta. We use sustainable practices to grow plants designed specifically for your landscape. Our seedlings are grown at the nursery in outside seed beds or in plug containers which are stored outside for the winter. This gives us the best possible plants to line out into our fields that grow on to become landscape-sized material for your yard!

Field Grown

We grow in the soil in our fields and come spring we bare-root our plants and containerize for ease of transportation. This is a traditional practice that leads to the best outcomes for the plant and for your landscape.

Quality Soil

When we bare-root our plants, our soil is left in our field to be used for the next crop. We have an active compost operation that provides us with the organic material to maintain our soils to be optimum quality.

Non-irrigated Fields

We have found that the native plants that like to grow here don’t need additional watering, so we don’t irrigate our fields. Little additional water is needed beyond what falls naturally over the year.

All of this effort results in a stronger, less pot-bound plant which will adapt to your conditions quickly and with less maintenance.
