We are open for business, but due to the COVID-19 concerns, we are limiting interaction with customers and practicing social distancing. At this time, we are only allowing payments for goods and services over the phone. We are not allowing customers inside of our building, therefore we are not handling cash transactions at this time, We would be happy to walk around the nursery with you in order to select material, but will need to keep a minimum of 6 feet between all persons at all times. Payment can be made over the phone from outside the building or in your vehicle. We are able to have items ready for pick up or delivery if desired. Please call the office for more details, or with any questions. You may also email any requests or questions. Thank you for understanding, we look forward to working with you, as well as providing quality plant material for your yard or project this season!
