What would you like customers to know about your business?
We are a small family-owned, licensed retail grower of perennials, shrubs & trees. We specialize in growing a wide selection of new introductions, unusual, rare and cutting-edge varieties, which you won't find in a typical box store or local nursery. However, we try to find a balance by growing tried-and-true, older varieties as well.
Where are you located?
We previously had a garden center in Lewes, Delaware; however the resort economy there was hit hard by the onset of the recession, forcing us to close at the end of the 2006 season. We missed growing plants and interacting with customers so much that in 2011 we decided to start growing small quantities of perennials, shrubs and trees at home in Wilmington, DE. Presently, we only sell our plants at the West Chester Growers Market.
What's new this season?
We have several new varieties that we are debuting each week.
The best way to keep up with our inventory and what we are bringing to the market would be through our weekly Garden Club emails. Our detailed inventory lists provide comprehensive plant information including quantities, pictures, growing information and prices. Stop by our tent to sign up! We also post plant photos and growing information daily on our Facebook page
Later this season, we will have a nice selection of new shrubs introduced by Proven Winners, fruit trees, thornless berry plants, unusual Japanese Maple trees, as well as new varieties of Coreopsis, Heucheras and Echinacea (Coneflowers) developed by leading hybridizer Terra Nova Nurseries Inc.
