About us

Golden Alexanders Native Plant Nursery was started in 2021 in Sarnia, Ontario. Our focus is on growing plants from the Carolinian Zone of Canada. Our goal is to have the widest selection of native plants, shrubs, and trees to supply any local natural landscape or restoration project with the appropriate plant material. Our nursery stock is grown from locally collected seed with only a small percentage potted from division and cuttings. We also offer landscape design and installation services on a limited time basis.

Our team

Nick Alexander


A graduate from Algonquin College’s Horticulture Technician program in 2012, Nick has since worked exclusively in the native plant field spending 9 years working for Return the Landscape in Sarnia, giving him a very broad background in the native plants of Carolinian Canada. Nick has designed, installed, and maintained many different native plant gardens as well as some larger scale restoration projects. Propagating native plants has been the foundation of his native plant career and has become Nick's primary focus with Golden Alexanders.

"This will be my second fun year working with Nick at Golden Alexanders. Looking forward to giving nature a helping hand by creating more naturalized gardens and bringing back wildlife diversity to Ontario. It's exciting being part of an important step to improving our environment. Hope you will join us in this challenge."

We are thrilled to have Cheryl back this year! Along with her passion for nature, she brings with her years of growing and landscaping experience. She is also the founder and organizer of the popular Fiery Faces in Petrolia.
