Online Store Is Now Open!

We're officially open for orders for spring! The website is up to date, but of course subject to changes based on crop failures during winter, plant condition upon arrival, non-shipment of varieties etc. As always we'll start shipping in May based on how plants are looking.

You can find our list of new plants and plants that are returning after a brief absence in this post. As we add or remove items this list changes, so if you've looked before it's worth taking another look.

We've been busy getting events finalized and our events page has been updated. Have an event for us to sell plants at or want Nick to talk about plants to your group? Contact Him!

Another Season Over

Another season is over here, we've gotten everything put away for winter and turned off online ordering. Of course if you do want to order something for spring, you can email us and we'll be happy to start an invoice for you. Over the next 2 months we'll be ordering a few more plants and updating the website with them. As always, we do take requests and suggestions. Thanks for a great successful season!

Late Additions

We've added just a few plants to the store recently.

Carex appalachica is a nice petite sedge that likes dry shade. It would look great with Epimedium and Heuchera.

Heuchera 'Stainless Steel'  is making a return, it's a favorite of mine and you need it.

Kirengeshoma palmata is also making a return as we had special order for a large number of them. We've only got 5 extra to sell and expect they won't last long.

New and Returning Plants for 2018!

We've been working on getting the catalog updated for 2018! We have more new items than ever before! This is a tentative list, you can find descriptions of all of them and pictures of most in the store or you can follow the links.

Actaea 'Hillside Black Beauty' - sold out last year, more are on the way!
Astilbe 'Chocolate Shogun' PP26430 - returning after several years absence
Athyrium 'Godzilla' - sold out last year, more are on the way!
Brunnera 'Alexander's Great' PPAF - sold out EARLY last year, many more on the way!
Helleborus 'Dark and Handsome' - sold out last year, more are on the way!
Heuchera 'Georgia Peach' PP19375 - sold out last year, more are on the way!
Hosta 'Brother Stefan'  - New, Hosta of the Year 2017!
Hosta 'Lakeside Paisley Print' - New, Hosta of the Year 2019!
Hosta 'Natalie' - Rare!
Hosta 'World Cup' - New, Hosta of the Year 2018!
Leucosceptrum japonicum 'Silver Angel' - Returning after many years!

Every year we try to streamline our processes to make it more efficient, more affordable, or more convenient for us to do what we do and for our customers to shop with us.
In the past, we've opened up our website for orders right around now. This invariably led to having to send out refunds when we had crop failures or there were shortages from our suppliers. This is always disappointing to everyone involved. This year we've got the website updated with what we expect to have in stock, but we have everything set to out of stock. We'll set everything to in stock with appropriate quantities in March when new plants arrive and we have a better idea of winter survival of last year's stock.
If you absolutely can't wait and want to reserve something, you can! Simply email us or get a hold of us via Facebook and let us know what you want to order. We'll start an invoice for you, payable in late April or early May.
