The gardens, woods, and meadow are alive with plants, birds, bees, deer and everything else. We would love to share these wonderful live plants with you so you can grow your own medicines, bouquets, and herbs.

Live plants are available for pickup at Cutting Root Farm in Butler and the Apothecary in Wilkinsburg. Check here for updates about availability and fill out the contact form to request live plants. If the plant you request is not in season, you will receive an email when it is in season, and you can confirm your order then.

We sell seedlings, plants, and live roots depending on the season.  Seedlings are 1-6 weeks old and available in the spring for $3 each.  Live plants are 1-5 years old and available in the spring, summer, and fall for $8-$15 each.  Live bare roots are available in the fall for $10 each.
