Who we are
Gleaning new life and purpose in small and unexpected places.
Phil and Kelli are lifelong learners and have been part of the Fort Collins community since 2009.
Crawford's Cottage was born from our shared love of exploring and growing our passions in innovative ways.
We find opportunities to garden, woodwork, and sew in a small space, on a budget, and with limited time.
Our plants are started from seed from local growers, Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds, Botanical Interests, MIGardener, and the Alliance of Native Seedkeepers. We also save seed from year to year from our own plants.
We are starting to plant for the 2023 growing season and we are so excited for the varieties we have available this year.
Plant starts will be available for pick up in early May and we are accepting pre-orders now.
Our Plants are
Peat and Perlite-Free
We avoid the using products with peat or perlite. Peat plays an important role in sequestering carbon, and harvesting and using it releases enormous amounts of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gasses. We also avoid perlite because the process to make it relies heavily on the use fossil fuels.
We seek and use heirloom seeds so that we can save viable, reliable plants from year to year, continuing the genetics of the varieties in our collection.
We take pride in growing strong, sturdy plants. We use natural, organic soil material and plant food. We also harden off all of our plants before they go out to your garden.
