Custom On-Site Seed and Cutting Collection:
Champoeg Nursery, Inc. offers custom on-site seed and cutting collection from plants that are genetically adapted to local environments. To ensure that collection, propagation and revegetation occur in the proper natural cycle, advanced planning is necessary. Once this process is underway, our staff will visit a project site and collect the specified seeds and cuttings. After the collection has taken place, the cuttings are either given directly to the customer for planting or returned to the nursery for custom growing. The seeds require more care and as a result are immediately returned to the Nursery to be dried, cleaned and stored. After these steps have taken place, the seeds are either kept at our nursery for custom growing, or given to the customer and utilized for direct seeding. Collection costs are based on seed and cutting availability, geographic location and collection logistics. We charge a flat rate per hour and will negotiate the terms of the arrangement when an order is placed and the collection site has been evaluated.

Custom Contract Growing:
Champoeg Nursery, Inc. also offers custom contract growing of site-specific native plants. This delicate process involves gathering seeds, cuttings and other propagules from customer-specified sources or our own donor sites. After the seeds and cuttings are prepared for planting, they are propagated under carefully controlled conditions, grown to the specifications of the customer (i.e. container size and shape or age class) and delivered on time. Our Nursery includes a combination of greenhouses and shading structures designed to grow plants that are acclimated to a variety of ecosystems. The particular usage of these facilities depends on our customer's requirements and the specifications of their order. If you are interested in this service please contact us via our CONTACT US page.
