Winter at the Nursery


The store is decorated in the Christmas theme with many gift ideas on display. If there is a gardener on your list, we have something unique for them. Otherwise, if you are not sure, see our note on gift certificates below.

Live Christmas trees are on display in the parking lot and in front of the store. This year we have a nice crop of trees in 5 gallon pots that will be easy to bring into the house. Remember they should only stay indoors for about 10 days and be watered daily.

Cut trees in a range of species such as Douglas fir, Noble fir, Grand fir, Fraser fir and Noordman fir will be available from December 1st.

The first shipment of bare root Fruit Trees have arrived and are best planted in cool, damp weather. Our fruit tree selection, as shown on our Fruit Tree Page will be complete by mid February.

The Rose List has been updated for 2019. Check it out!

Check out our Rhododendron Page to see what we will be carrying for 2019.
