My little year-end blog:  First, we want to thank you for your past business!  2017 will bring some changes to our operation. 

We are moving our website to a more reliable provider and re-designing it to be more mobile device friendly.

We are expanding our production and offerings of plug flats and perennials, but shrinking down field production of trees and shrubs.  The cutback in field production is two-fold:  Where we used to be a "Mom & Pop" operation, it is now a "Grandma & Grandpa" operation!  That is the first reason. 

The second, is the local Deer population.  Since being annexed into the city limits several years ago, hunters can no longer keep the population in check.  Where we used to see the occassional Deer, now we have herds of them and a nursery is like an all-you-can-eat buffet!  We have tried various fencing, sprays, etc., but the added hassle and expense is not worth the end result.

We will still continue to offer Bittersweet and certain trees and shrubs.  These will, of course, be Deer resistant varieties!  All types of evergreen trees and shubs are being discontinued.  Even those that are touted to be Deer resistant are devoured by the population in this area. We have a 300' long row of mature Arborvitaes along one side of the nursery, and you can see how high the Deer can reach.  They are bare from that point to the ground.

With the growing popularity of care-free ground covers and Green-Roof projects, we have seen our plug flat demand increase considerably.  You do not have to be a commercial grower to purchase our plug flats.  Minimum order is one flat, all of the same variety, unless offered as an assortment.  While we do grow several varieties on speculation, most are grown-to-order.  If you have a large project in the works and need a substantial quantity, please pre-order to insure availability.

We look forward to serving you in 2017 from our new website!  Shipping of plant material generally starts mid March, weather permitting.  Sedums can ship year-around, but will be dormant in winter.
