We Donate Plants

Tn Nursery Donates Plants To Non-Profit Organizations

If you are from a non-profit organization, university or governmental organization and need a few plants for a project, planting or experiment, please do not hesitate to email Tammy and allow us to help you free of charge. We would be more than honored to ship plants for research. There will be no charge as we have not charged in 61 years for our donations. We would appreciate in exchange for a mention of our donation on your website. This in return helps us build credibility and also helps non-profits.

We have over 500 different species of herbaceous plants, wetland plants and medicinal as well as mitigation in stock year round. We will ship your plants free of charge and we also have a large list of plants that had never had an herbicides, insecticides or pesticides allied just for research studies. 

 We helped over 419 universities, non-profit organizations and governmental agencies get free saplings and liners for medical projects, university experiments,wetland mitigation all types of governmental experiments plus lab science programs. For your free plant donations, email Tammy at tnnurseryorders@gmail.com and she will absolutely help in any way possible.

How Universities Use Plants For Research

"We donate to nonprofits," should be the headline on TN Nursery's main page, because they indeed donate to nonprofits though not what you would expect. When you hear the words, "we donate to nonprofits," the first thing that comes to mind is money. Organizations that do not provide a product or service to generate revenue needs some way to stay afloat. In the case of TN Nursery, they donate plants to nonprofits like universities. So what do universities do with the plants they receive from nurseries like TN Nursery?

Plants and Disease

Michigan State University, for example, is researching plants' ability to fight off harmful bacteria. One of the leading causes of low yealing crops is due to disease, and a study indicated that these drops in productivity could result in billions of dollars lost for a given year. The large-scale experiment Michigan State conducted will lead to an improved level of understanding in how plants deal with diseases.

For example, we know plants do not possess an immune system that adapts like our own. The characteristics a plant has to stave off disease, on the other hand, stay with it. That is why we have been able to cross-breed different strains of plants and make new ones.

In hindsight, and others like it will help us to better breed consumable plants by testing how their wild cousins deal with diseases and develop newer variants to increase yields in the future.

Plants In Space

Another college to consider is Harvard University and the work they've completed with NASA. Experimenting with suborbital biology, as far back as 1946. Today, our understanding of the need for plants grown in zero-gravity environments has grown substantially since. They have proven to provide several advantages to astronauts on a psychological basis in addition to consumption as food and refreshing the atmosphere. For obvious reasons, plants metabolize carbon dioxide in the air.

Greywater Plants

Vanderbilt University researched greywater recycling and its effect on plant growth. Greywater is merely water that comes from dishwashers or laundry machines. In many cases, this could benefit people living in places that often experience drought. With the use of greywater, it requires less treatment, for example, switching to a biocompatible laundry soap does the trick. Where blackwater, often sewage water, needs extensive therapy before reuse.

Plants donated for research help us to understand better things we still do not know. TN Nursery offers hundreds of different species not treated with harmful chemicals to aid organizations in their research. For plants donated for research, they will make our society better as we continue to face new challenges we must overcome to ensure a brighter future.
