NEW to GARDENING?
 

If shopping for trees/shrubs is a bit intimidating, you're not alone!
We get it, we are a BIG nursery but don't stress, we're always here to help.

Here are some key terms to get you started as you begin shopping, so you'll better understand the tags on plants or the informative plant/tree signage we have posted all around the nursery.

A beautiful landscape with year-round interest usually has a mix of the 3 main types of plants - annuals, perennials, and evergreens, so keep that in mind, as you shop!  

Of course, the wonderful thing about adding/tending to your yard is it's something you can work on over time!  Trust us, that's part of the fun :)
