By now, you may know that we have discontinued our famous catalog. It was just too expensive and too time consuming to produce. To the 26 people, mostly relatives, who will miss it, our apologies. To make up for this, from time to time we will blog about anything and everything plant related. Or not. And we’ll throw in some of the goofy stuff.
Apparently Spring is here after a nasty cold March and early April. We are frantically filling the benches with early blooming varieties of perennials, vegetables, herbs, and even annuals. They look great! Come and get ’em.
What if soy milk is just regular milk introducing itself in Spanish?
Usually I sleep on my left side on the left side of the bed, but in a pinch I can do the right side, so I know a thing or two about adaptability.
We are so excited for another spring! We can’t wait for you to come visit us this year. We have lots of new varieties to offer this year. Checkout our website for everything we carry. Did you know that you can check descriptions of all our plants and view their availabilities, sizes, and prices? Just simply shop by category or use the search bar to see if we carry a particular plant you are looking for.
Our site has been updated to include plant descriptions. We would like to give credit to the following places for the use of their photographs: Walter’s Gardens, Seed Savers Exchange, Arrowhead Alpines, Klehm’s Song Sparrow Farm, Pleasant Run, Springhill Nursery, Wayside Gardens, Plants Nouveau, Jelitto Seeds, Ball, Annie’s Annuals, Skagit Gardens, Growing Colors, Proven Winners. Thank you!

Welcome to our new site!
We just wanted to let you know what to expect from our new site. Our new site is integrated with our brand new plant database. Because of this you will be able to get a lot more information from our site than ever before.
Here’s what to expect:
See a live list of what plants we will have each season.
You can now see when plants are available or sold out! (but we still recommend you give a call before coming to the greenhouse since the availability will only upload once a day and someone can come buy everything before the updates happen)
Also, you can see the prices and sizes of all of our plants.
Our new news and knowledge section is our blog section where we will share useful plant information with you and important shopping information.
Here’s what to expect in the future:
Pictures and descriptions of all of our 4000 varieties of plants! (as you can imagine it may take us a while to build our database since we are starting from scratch but when its done you will love it!)
We are glad you’re here, spend some time and look around a while, we look forward to seeing you this spring at our greenhouse!
