Nursery

Our Native Plant Nursery will be open Thursday through Saturdays from 9am – 5pm
May 4th – June 3rd!

Specializing in native treesshrubsferns and wildflowers, sales from our nursery help support our restoration and educational efforts.

Here you will find information on purchasing, identifying, collecting, and growing your own native trees and shrubs. The Macphail Woods nursery has grown by leaps and bounds in recent years, and has become a major source of native plants for other habitat restoration projects around Prince Edward Island. These have included many school ground plantings and riparian zones around streams.
