To help with planning your Spring garden, our Tomato List for 2019 is available for viewing on our Greenhouse Tab. The tomato starts will probably not be ready until the end of April but, of course, it is weather dependent. We will announce on Facebook when the tomatoes are available.

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.
