We are currently closed to on-site

shopping and curbside pickup due to the spread of COVID-19 and mandates to stay at home. We are offering a 2-day drive-through sale March 29-30 from 10am-5pm before the stay-at-home mandate goes into effect, but then will be taking some time to focus on health and bettering the business for online shopping.  We want to do our part to protect our staff and customers - we hope you understand & will continue to support us when we reopen!


Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express can all be run over the phone when you pre-pay for your order. 

Thank you for your understanding and support during this challenging time!

Get your trunk and/or back seat cleaned out, and lay down protective plastic or cardboard.  Be ready to communicate to our staff where you would like the plants to be placed when you arrive - they will be doing the loading for our safety and yours!

Please do not come for a pickup if you or anyone in your household is showing signs of illness; we have a lot of plants and they will be here for a while!  We want to slow the spread of this disease and care about the wellness of our staff as well as our customers.  We will do the same - rest assured that any staff loading your order will be healthy and following strict safety protocol.
