1000’s of Locally Grown Perennials to Choose From!

Our perennial and nursery departments are open from March 1st to October 31st and will consist of a vast variety of perennials, trees, evergreens, shrubs and much more. Planning is paramount!  Perennial plants can be short-lived (only a few years) or long-lived. Perennials typically grow root structures that allow them to adapt to life from one year to the next through a form of vegetative reproduction rather than seeding. Begin preparing your garden plots with pensive persistence, compost, sheep and peat, and well-placed dug holes. (Practice makes perfect!)  We stock perennials, edible fruit, and vines that are suitable for sun, shade, xeric, groundcover, or rock gardens. With so many perennial options and different planting requirements please let our knowledgeable staff direct you to the ones suitable for your garden and yard space.
