Homegrown, Healthy & Affordable!


For 46 years our family business has supplied WNC with high quality, low cost plants.  We grow over 90% of our plants from start to finish on site.  We offer over 1,500 varieties of potted perennials and annuals, including bedding plants and hanging baskets, non-GMO edibles, natives, succulents, houseplants, aquatics, shrubs and trees.  We also provide a range of beautiful combos, pottery, garden art, and varied soil and garden products. Due to high demand, we operate as a first-come, first-serve retail shopping experience (we are unable to hold or deliver items and do not sell wholesale).

We offer an extensive calendar of events and educational programs, ranging from our famous Herb Festival to free seminars, and our sales bring customers from hours away. With a beautiful setting complete with gardens and picnic areas, our goal is to offer more than just a place to buy plants!  

Please note that we are not open year-round; our 2019 season ran from March 13 - July 14th and is now over (other than a brief two-weekend fall sale).
