Providing a large selection of native trees, shrubs, grasses, and flowers for every project for home, large-scale, and contract services.

Our nursery has produced over 350,000 plants since its inception utilizing organic and chemical-free practices.


Borderlands Nursery & Seed is a plant and seed propagation, production, and research facility and is part of the Native Plant Program of Borderlands Restoration Network. The nursery is located in Patagonia, AZ on a 60-acre farm including six growing structures and seed production growout fields, working in conjunction with the Borderlands Nursery & Seed Seed Lab. The nursery has worked with over 400 species of native plants for the public, federal agencies, and restoration practitioners. A team of horticulture staff and dedicated volunteers conduct propagation activities at the nursery.


Our Goals:


  • Provide a regionally diverse selection of plants available for restoration services through contracted grow-outs and sale of plants to the public 

  • Educating the public, partners, and students about native plants of the region, propagation, and their role in biodiversity and land restoration

  • Communicate with partner nurseries to minimize redundancy in plant production and establish protocols that consider all levels of biodiversity

  • Develop and lead research opportunities for regional native plant production for container and in-ground farm production

  • Provide consultation and training opportunities for professionals and citizens in native plant propagation, greenhouse management, and restoration planting services

  • Coordinating with multiple public and private partners who seek restoration services in order to “get out in front” of restoration needs and accelerate coordinated habitat improvements
