M R Gardens focuses on pollinator plants and other species that benefit the ecosystem, and aims to propagate plants in the most sustainable way possible. The nursery’s passive solar greenhouse requires no extra heat other than solar gain in winter. The roof is also slanted at just the right angle to keep it from overheating so that large exhaust fans are not needed. M R Gardens uses renewable resources in its potting soil and encourages customers to wash and return their plastic pots, which are sanitized and reused. Plants are grown on a small scale so that individual attention is given to plants, ensuring high quality.
