Plants and products we believe in.
Trends in gardening have evolved over the years, but our commitment to offering our customers plants and gardening products we believe in has not. Our goal is to help you to become a successful gardener, whether you're creating a container garden on your back patio or planning your urban homestead, we are here to help.
Plants with a Purpose
Sure, the plants we carry are pretty to look at, but they've also been specially selected to serve a purpose. Many shrubs in our yard provide food or shelter to wildlife. Others are chosen for their pollen and nectar-rich blooms that provide nutrition for bees, butterflies, and other pollinators. Still others produce fruits or berries that are tasty additions to your landscape. Take a stroll through our nursery yard and see just how pretty plants with a purpose can be!
Annuals & Perennials
Beginning in late April, we fully stock our greenhouse with a gorgeous selection of flowering annuals. From old standards like geraniums and marigolds to new and interesting varieties of verbena, these seasonal beauties will add pops of color to your gardens and planters.
Our selection of perennials is specially curated to help you achieve success in your garden. Beginning this season, look for our Problem Solver Plants Areas. Looking for something that will thrive in a moist, shady space? Dry and windy? Pollinator friendly? We are working hard to provide you with plant choices that will be well-suited to your situation.
Trees & Shrubs
If it's been a while since you last visited our nursery yard, you'll notice some pretty big changes. No longer will you find rows and rows of traditional landscape plants in our yard, but carefully selected plants that fit into two major categories: plants that provide us with food and plants that provide food, shelter and habitat to wildlife. You'll find more native selections.
The reasons for this shift are two-fold. First, we simply cannot compete with big box stores when it comes to pricing on standard landscape trees and shrubs. Secondly, and more importantly, we want to sell plants we believe in. We think it's important to interact with our landscape rather than just choosing plants that are pretty to look at. We want plants that grow food we can eat. We're beekeepers, so we're very tuned into the plight of pollinators and we want to help. Planting native species of plants is one of the single best ways we've found to support not just pollinators, but all native wildlife. It's a learning process for us, for sure, and we hope you'll learn along with us.
