Source of our plants Most of our plants have been grown from seed or cloned from ‘mommy plants’ who live at the Witt farm. We do not greenhouse. My ‘from seed’ babies are lovingly started inside my home and ‘pushed out of the nest’ into the great outdoors as soon as possible. Our plants aren’t afraid of rain, snow, freezing, or most bugs, Many are deer resistant. The inventory list provided between October and April is exclusively plants which have overwintered in our fields. These plants are usually twice the size of the competition's plants.
