At Sow Exotic, we're cultivating hundreds of varieties of rare fruiting plants, tropical fruit trees, medicinal herbs, and culturally important plants from around the world, to bring you the most diverse collection of unique edible plants - all in one place!
Our family-run nursery, biointensive food forest, and certified wildlife habitat in the heart of Florida is an almost entirely edible landscape filled with all of the perennial plants you'll find here and more, as well as a seasonal vegetable garden. We grow all of our plants naturally and organically using sustainable gardening practices.

From Passion Project to Exotic Plant Nursery
Jared had just purchased a little piece of land on the outskirts of town and began his mission to collect all the edible plants he could get his hands on that would grow on the property in Zone 9. He spent years hunting down seeds and plants from hundreds of different sources all over the world, which made growing a food forest quite an endeavor.
As our collection and passion grew, we knew we had to build a platform where we could offer all of these plants in one convenient place. Our goal was, and still is, to make it as easy as possible for everyone to grow their own food and transform their space into a thriving edible landscape!
Why Edible Plants?
For us, it's simple. In a society where the large majority of people are conditioned to eating mostly processed foods, we believe part of the solution is encouraging our community to cook from scratch with fresh ingredients, many of which can (easily!) be grown right at home.
Sow Exotic Today
We quickly outgrew our humble glasshouse. Sow Exotic now proudly offers over 200 unique varieties (and growing!) of edible and medicinal plants, as well as an expanding collection of gardening supplies and apparel.
Our collection is always growing and we'd love to hear from you about new plants we can offer.
