Sagebrush Nursery was started in 1994 after a large BC Gas project along the west shore of Vaseaux lake was initiated. Our original intentions were to house the salvaged plants from the site and replace them after storage over the summer. What was evident to us was that the local plant species of the interior didn't stand up so well to being dug up and transplanted. The survival rates of most species were bismal so the idea of growing native plants for such projects was hatched.
Sagebrush offers retail sales of native plants at their nursery on Island Road, just North of Oliver.
