WELCOME TO OUR NURSERY SECTION
Here you will find links to our Hosta and Bamboo collections, and a whole lot of excuses why you can't see if we have the plant you're looking for. We're sorry about the frustration, and hope you accept our lame excuses. If you really need to know, just pick up the phone and a real person will answer all your questions - we promise.
Why we don't list our entire plant inventory online:
We actually know this is not very smart because 1) it gives the impression we only sell Bamboos and Hostas which is very false and 2) folks who are looking for a specific plant don't actually know if we have it. That said, the real reason we don't list all our plants on line is that the list is large, cumbersome and ever changing. One year we'll grow twelve varieties of Aquilegia(Columbine) for example, and the next year five. In addition, we spend so much time in the nursery dead-heading, primping, making sure our plant friends look their very best as they head off to their new homes, that we have very little energy for the web site during the growing season. Maybe we'll do better organizing our list next season. We can hope.
The truth is that we are, indeed, "plant nuts", "garden geeks" and any number of less complimentary names that apply to people who go 'ga-ga' over green growing things. Geeks, not experts, mind you. Although we've been doing this since 1980 there is always something new to learn in the gardening world! You'll be able to stump us with your own odd ball requests and send us running off to Hortus to figure out the latest Latin name change. We belong to odd-ball plant collector groups and spend hours on the net tracking down new (to us) species and cultivars. All this because we love plants and love being able to share interesting new beauties with our gardening friends and visitors. That said, our plant list includes, but is not limited to, the following fairly broad categories:
Alpines, Succulents, Herbs (culinary, medicinal, ornamental - over 200 varieties), Grasses for Sun and Shade, Ground Covers for Sun and Shade, Dwarf Conifers for Containers and Small Spaces, Roses, Fruit Trees and Berries, Perennials for Sun and Shade and In-Between, Tropicals for Container Plantings, Heirloom and conventional vegetables, Annuals and Tender Perennials, Vines (including several good varieties of hops for the home brewer), Flowering Shrubs (lots of Hydrangeas), interesting Woodies, and the odd ball plant we've been able to grow from seeds brought back to us by plant collectors from their travels abroad. And, of course, Hosta and Bamboo.
In addition, we have partnered with Amazon.com to offer things we're not able to grow or stock here because of climate. If you'd like to try growing Arabica Coffee, or Vanilla Bean Orchid, click here, then click on "Plants and Seeds" in the Browse by Category box to the upper right of the page.
