Week of Sept 4th: What to Expect This Fall
An incredible selection of homegrown beauties!
We grew almost all of our annuals, perennials and edibles here on site for this fall season, and the hard work and individualized care of our production and growing teams shows! We also have an amazing selection of shrubs and trees, a majority of which were grown here or nearby. And don't forget our beautiful houseplant offerings, including some specialties we've been growing! You can view our availability and pricing here.

EXPANDED RETAIL OPTIONS
We are excited to expand our retail selection with products from local artisans such as Solstice Handmade (native wildlife and plant art), Line by Line Macrame (plant hangers, earrings & more), and Earth Echoes (herbal products including a 'Painters Blend' gardeners' lotion), plus Elm Dirt Organic Liquid Fertilizers, houseplant tools by October Violet, Corona garden tools and more!
BEHIND THE SCENES
We have continued to work hard to improve our organization, production planning, and marketing with the incorporation of our Point of Sale and Inventory Management System this season. We have learned a lot about what our customers want, and have been very proactive in sowing and planting a much more extensive variety of natives (including straight species) and edibles (most will be ready next spring). We have also worked hard to find the perfect outdoor stickers and to get barcoding on every pot. The goal with barcoding is a faster checkout experience, and with receipts going to your email, you'll have a record of all purchases along with occasional growing tips for challenging or unique species.
We remain committed to providing quality locally grown, healthy plants, while staying competitvely priced. You can learn more about the customer benefits of our POS and how we price our plants in our FAQ section. Our availability list with prices can be viewed here.
We are SO EXCITED to share the beauty of the greenhouse with you in one week!!
