Fiddlehead Nursery
Rare Edible Perennials

Now open for the 2020 Growing Season

Fiddlehead Nursery is a permaculture plant nursery in the Beaver Valley, near Collingwood, Ontario.  We specialize in edible, perennial plants, and design low-maintenance, productive gardens.  We carry many delicious and rare perennial vegetables and salad greens, as well as berry bushes, fruiting vines, fruit trees and nut trees.  We offer consultations for garden designs, and host tasting tours of our extensive and ever-expanding demonstration gardens.  We don’t ship plants or sell online, so come for a taste!

Covid 19 Notice: We are allowing one carload of people into the greenhouse at a time, so there may be a lineup when you get here.  Thanks so much for your patience and understanding.  We’re also happy to take orders by e-mail & set them outside for customer pickup.  Payment can be made by e-transfer to – feel free to send us a wish list and we’ll let you know what we have available.  We’ve sold out of some of the plants we offer already, so it may be prudent to check our availability before making the trip.

Open Thursday to Sunday, 10am-5pm, plus holidays from mid-May until Thanksgiving.

We sell farm-fresh food!   Perennial shoot vegetables such as hostas, udo, caucasian spinach, Solomon’s seal, sea kale, sorrel, and mitsuba, along with perennial salad greens, edible flowers, currants, gooseberries, seedless table grapes, and other seasonally available garden produce.
