Not Your Typical Nursery

Our Story

There are so many more ways to nourish and heal our bodies than we could ever imagine or have easy access to here in the U.S.  That's why we founded Sow Exotic on Earth Day in 2016 - to cultivate and share the world's largest collection of fruiting, edible and medicinal plants from around the globe, all in one place.

Our mission was, and still is, to transform the traditional landscape to an edible, colorful, thriving oasis ripe with nutrition and endless possibility where something new is always in season and fresh food can be picked daily.  

Why Edible Plants?

Our 2-acre nursery, biointensive food forest, and certified wildlife habitat located in the heart of Florida, is an almost entirely edible landscape filled with all of the plants you see here and more, as well as a seasonal vegetable garden. All of our plants are grown naturally with zero chemical fertilizers and are completely GMO-free.  

The Beginning

Driven by the goal to share our growing collection of rare fruiting and medicinal plants,  we launched Sow Exotic online with just 25 different varieties, sown and grown in this little glass greenhouse. 

But what started as an outlet for our gardening passion quickly grew into much more than just selling a few plants online. 

Two Years Later

We quickly outgrew our humble glasshouse.  Just two years later, Sow Exotic now proudly offers more than 200 unique varieties (and growing!) of edible and medicinal plants, as well as an expanding collection of gardening tools, fertilizers, and soil nutrients.

We specialize in growing hard-to-find exotic fruiting plants and rare medicinal herbs. Our collection is ever expanding and we'd love to hear from you about new plants we should be growing.
