Beaux Arbres is a native plant nursery in Bristol, Quebec (map), about an hour north-west of Ottawa. We specialize in plants native to the Ottawa Valley and garden-worthy wildflowers from eastern North America.
Our plants are nursery-propagated. We sell no plants dug from the wild.
We use no pesticides what-so-ever in our nursery. For us, the caterpillars and other insects which eat our plants are a feature, not a bug (if we may put it like that). Our demonstration gardens are certified through the Canadian Wildlife Federation’s Backyard Habitat programme.
We sell our own locally-produced plants and seeds at our farm, at Farmers Markets, and at specialty plant sales in Ottawa: the Rare and Unusual Plant Sale in May and the FWG Sale in June (see Events page). We do not ship plants.
