Thought I’d share a nursery I found with you guys! (I have no affiliation, I just found them when searching for common arrowhead, which they are sadly out of right now).

Beaver Lake Nursery sells a lot of native plants, for amazing prices, and a lot of them are edible! They also have no minimum amount or price necessary. Some of the plants &/or sizes of plants, however, are not available until the fall. But, here's some of the edibles they offer:

They have three different types of wild strawberries for 75 CENTS a plug, and $1 for a 3.5 inch pot, and gallon sized pots for $3.

They also have red and blue elderberry for $3 for a GALLON pot, and $1 for a 3.5 inch pot.

Mountain huckleberry in gallon pot for $3. (They also have red huckleberry and Welsh Cranberry for similar prices).

Red Flowering Current is $3.25 for a gallon pot, and $1.5o for a 3.5 inch pot. They also have Golden Current in gallon pots for $3.00.

They also have Oregon Crabapple and some dogwoods and common camas, as well as a bunch of other plants, both edible and non edible.

Their catalogue is here: http://www.beaverlakenursery.com/catalog-availability.pdf

I asked about shipping, too, and here was the answer:

regarding shipping, we only ships liners thru USPS or UPS if is anything bigger we let the costumer handle that



I have not ordered through them (I was looking for broadleaf arrowhead, but they were out), but I thought you all might want to know about this nursery I found!

Nice selection of species that are not readily available elsewhere.
Lots of PNW natives amongst their offerings.

They say they are a wholesale distributor - will they sell to someone without a business?

I didn't see that when I was searching their webpage, but when I asked if there was a minimum price or amount, he said there wasn't any, and he didn't bring up me needing to have a business. In my area, there are some wholesale sellers that also sell to the general public. Perhaps he's the same way? Would you like me to email him?

Oh, you don't need to do that for me. We are scheming about building a house in our back yard (long story) so this coming spring and summer are not for any new plantings. I hope they do sell to individuals, I just noticed the term on their home page.
