Blue Forest Plants

We are a small permaculture nursery located in Duluth, MN. Our focus is primarily on fruit and nut trees/shrubs that will thrive in our region now and into the future with a warming climate. All of our offerings are grown locally in Northern Minnesota, either from seed or propagating from cuttings. Our methods are chemical free; we focus on the health of our soil to ensure the health of our plants. Building local resilience and nurturing living food systems is perhaps more important now than ever. If we can help get some plants into your hands – and into the ground – for our generation and beyond, then hopefully we are helping do our part.
