The Midwife’s Nursery

Hi, I am Cathy Hartt and I am a nurse-midwife. I helped birth many babies before starting

My art store initially got into selling plants on Etsy so I would have enough listings, but since then they have become my top-selling item. So, I decided to name my plant department “The Midwife’s Nursery.” Please visit my Etsy store at the link below for the most up-to-date listings.

Since I am not a large or commercial nursery, I sell a few specialty plants both online and locally. I specialize in the following:

  • Begonias – Rhizomatous and Angel wing, mostly
  • Succulents – Epiphyllum and assorted others

Commonly available begonias are pictured below. I select begonias that do well in Western Colorado. Due to my small nursery size, inventory fluctuates. Begonias are available at Creative Corner in Montrose, CO, or through the Etsy Store. (Note: all orders placed on Etsy between November and February require heat packs, additional packaging and postage. Therefore, all winter online orders require a handling fee of $10-$15. March orders will be shipped in early April depending on the weather).

Epiphyllum Cactus varieties that are commonly available through my Etsy Shop (online or private sales only):

  • Queen of the Night (unrooted cutting or 3-inch plant)
  • Day blooming white bloom (unrooted cutting or 3-inch plant)
  • Sometimes available: Curly Cue, Zigzag, and yellow day blooming


I also offer brightly painted plant pots. Please visit my Etsy Shop under the “painted pot” section or Creative Corner in downtown Montrose, CO.
