Naturally Grown, Sustainably Delivered

Our All-Natural Organic Soil Blend:

Our soil mix is a special blend of all-natural organic materials made up of only four ingredients.

    • Coconut Coir (ground coconut husk that is the waste product of coconut processing. like for coconut oil or coconut water)
    • Peat Moss (a highly absorbent soil medium sourced from bogs and wetlands)
    • Perlite (heat-expanded volcanic rock or glass - think popcorn, only a thousand times crazier)
    • Mycorrhiza (naturally occurring soil life force that plays a key role in transferring nutrients from the soil to the roots of plants)
    • And zero synthetic pesticides!

We grow culturally important plants are native to lands around the world, from the tropical mountains of Asia to the southern tip of Africa, and offer a multitude of uses, from medicinal to just plain delicious.

Propagation Techniques

At the Sow Exotic nursery and biointensive food forest, we grow our plants using a variety of different propagation techniques and materials, including:

  • Seed
  • Grafts
  • Air-layer
  • Cutting
  • Micro-propagation

But there’s one thing our uncommon plants all have in common that other nurseries simply don’t offer: they’re all grown and delivered sustainably.  We ship our plants directly from our greenhouses to your garden in plantable pots and compostable packaging.
