Yes, we are open. We are open to telephone orders with curbside pick up or local area delivery. If we do not have the desired plants in stock, we will gladly order them in.

We are NOT open for browsing. Our home is in the middle of the nursery, we are sheltering our nearly 95-year-old mother, Alice, co-founder of the nursery. To best ensure her continued good health we are not allowing any browsing in the nursery. Our priority is the health of our mother.

Thank you all for your understanding as we all navigate this new normal.

Please take this time to enjoy your gardens, the bees, the butterflies, the birds…. the beauty of nature around us and work to make the new normal better than the old one.
