Welcome to our guidelines for propagating native plants in Garry oak habitat. These notes are for plant species characteristic of Garry oak and associated ecosystems in British Columbia, and were compiled by our Native Plant Propagation Steering Committee. Choose from trees, shrubs, forbs (annuals and perennials), grasses & sedges, or ferns & allies.
As little is known about some of the species, some categories may be blank. We will be adding information as it becomes available, and appreciate contributions from growers. Please contact us to contribute information.
On this site, you can also find a list of growers who sell native plants, guidelines for responsible seed and plant collection, and designs for native plant gardening in The Garry Oak Gardener’s Handbook.
