In a society where the large majority of people are conditioned to eating mostly processed foods, we believe part of the solution is encouraging our community to cook from scratch with fresh ingredients, many of which can be grown right at home.
Sow Exotic opened online in the spring of 2016 with the mission to grow and provide the most diverse catalog of useful exotic plants the world had ever seen. Our mission was, and still is, to transform the modern landscape from mundane and useless to an edible, colorful, thriving oasis ripe with nutrition and endless possibility where something new is always in season and fresh food can be picked daily.
Our 2-acre nursery, biointensive food forest, and certified wildlife habitat located in the heart of Florida, is an almost entirely edible landscape filled with all of the plants you see here and more, as well as a seasonal vegetable garden. All of our plants are grown naturally with zero chemical fertilizers and are completely GMO-free.
Driven by the goal to share our growing collection of rare fruiting and medicinal plants, we launched Sow Exotic online with just 25 different varieties, sown and grown in this little glass greenhouse.
But what started as an outlet for our gardening passion quickly grew into much more than just selling a few plants online.
Two Years Later
We quickly outgrew our humble glasshouse. Just two years later, Sow Exotic now proudly offers more than 200 unique varieties (and growing!) of edible and medicinal plants, as well as an expanding collection of gardening tools, fertilizers, and soil nutrients.
We specialize in growing hard-to-find exotic fruiting plants and rare medicinal herbs. Our collection is ever expanding and we'd love to hear from you about new plants we should be growing.
