January 2018

Our 2018 plant list is ready at last!!!!! Technology changes in a nano second, and even though our website went through a huge transformation just 4 years ago, it became necessary to do some major upgrades (and this took a bit longer than we were planning, but our new web people wanted to be sure that all the kinks were worked out before we made the “it’s live!" announcement.) We’ve kept a very similar layout, but now our site responds more seamlessly for smart phone, ipad, and tablet viewing. 

So what’s new, you may wonder? We’ve been growing uncommon plants for awhile, and we decided some time ago that we wanted to continue to offer these often hard to find selections, but our choices had to have strong ornamental value and not be fussy (providing you plant in the right location with proper soil). If these plants attract birds bees, and pollinators into the garden, all the better.

There are many new plants, and here are a few to entice you: Allium cernuum, Baptisia ‘Pink Lemonade’, Epimedium ‘Domino’, Hypericum ‘Fiesta’, Muhlenbergia capillaris ‘White Cloud’ ,Vernonia ‘Southern Cross’, Aeonium ‘Blushing Beauty’,  Graptoveria ‘Opalina’ and Kalanchoe orgyalis

We offer many of our succulents in both 2.5” starter pots and larger, more mature plants in 4.5” pots. 

We practice organic growing methods, and do not use NeoNicotinoids, which is the “go-to” pesticide among many succulent plant nurseries.  We are beekeepers, and the last thing we want to do is to expose bees to more environmental hazards

Some plants are in limited supply, and we reserve plants in the order that we receive requests, so we encourage early ordering. We will hold your plants until the appropriate planting time for your location. If you have a preferred ship date, please mention this the comments box, and we will be in touch to confirm this. If you live within driving distance, you can choose to pick up your plants at the nursery by selecting the DO NOT SHIP option. We prefer to schedule pickups on days that the nursery is open for browsing and shopping, so you can also check out other plants when you visit.

We are so thankful for all your wonderful compliments, suggestions and support for our growing endeavors. It’s hard to believe it’s going on 30 years that we began this operation, and we are delighted when we are paid a visit or receive another order from our very first customers. 

We are also pleased to be designated one of Garden Watchdog’s Top 30 Mail Order Companies. 

Big thanks to all of you who have taken a few minutes to sing our praises.

Now, let’s get this winter over with so we can all get back in the dirt!
