We’ll be open for the Spring season beginning Friday, March 22nd. Our early spring hours are Monday through Saturday from 10AM to 4PM. (We’re closed on Sundays until April.) We have the first of our trees and shrubs in stock, as well as packaged garden seeds. Onion sets and seed potatoes are due in by opening day. We hope the weather begins to act like it’s spring soon, too.
We are excited about the selection of shrubs and trees we have coming this spring. Here is a partial list of those plants for you to see. If there is plant that you would like to have but do not see it here, call Bob (740 310 2065) and he will do his best to get it for you.
You can be confident that the plants you purchase from us are hardy in our zone and have not been shipped from the south. Most of our plant material is grown here in Ohio or in Pennsylvania, and is used to our unpredictable weather.
To view a list of the trees and shrubs we have coming, click here. We are still expanding the list, so check back later.
What do you want your yard to be? Do you love the green expanse of mowed lawn (mowed weekly) or would you rather provide habitat for butterflies?
If you’re the green-lawn lover, then Home Depot has a program for you, where you can apply weed-and-feed and mow in patterns to make your yard look pristine and manicured.
If you prefer the more natural look, with exquisite bits of color moving from plant to plant. we can help you! We’ll be open for the season again in the spring, and we can help you choose plants that are butterfly magnets. Check out this short video for an appetite-whetting glimpse of what your front (or back, your choice) yard could become.

The weather doesn’t agree, but it’s almost time to order your grave blankets, pillows, wreaths and sprays. Our price lists get mailed out next week to all of our customers who have ordered from us in the past few years.
We can’t begin to place them until mid-November (because of cemetery rules) but we’ve actually begun production– making the wood and straw bases that we make them on. I think we’re the only source still making them this way.
The benefit of our base is that it gathers rain (and melting snow) to help keep the greens fresher longer. (Have you ever tried to get Styrofoam to take up water? It’s not gonna happen.) It also adds weight that helps to keep the blankets and pillows from flipping and blowing off in windy areas. (If we place them, we also fasten them down with a sturdy wire.)
If you haven’t ordered from us before, but would like a price list/order sheet, please call 740-546-4467 or toll free 800-844-5944, or email us at email@example.com and we’ll get one right out to you.
We’re open for the Fall season, even if the season definitely doesn’t feel like Fall! Hot and humid. Yikes!
We’ve got mums and cornstalks, and we hope to have the first of the pumpkins and gourds in by the weekend. Anita spent her first day back creating beautiful mum baskets with leaves, cattails, ribbons and all the trimmings. They would make a great hostess gift or porch or patio decoration.
From now through July 8th, all in-stock annuals (in trays, pots and hanging baskets) are 50% off! And all in-stock trees, shrubs and perennials are 25% off! Hurry in for best selection.
Come in now to save 25% on all your favorite trees, shrubs, perennials, herbs and flowers! It’s time for our End-of-Season Sale. All in-stock plant material is 25% off this week. We’re open weekdays from 9AM to 7PM, Sundays 12 to 5, and we’ll be starting to close at 6PM the week of June 25th.
Have you tried the new trend in gardening? Miniature Gardens (AKA: Fairy Gardens) are very much in the news right now. The gardening and lifestyle magazines have articles about these neat little creations. We have one garden set up in one of our raised bed cedar planters, and we have the plants, accessories and fairies to let you create your own.
These gardens can be portable, created in a large pot, planter, or box (or something more unusual like a child’s wagon or a galvanized wash tub), or they can be a tiny vignette in the ground in your full-sized garden. They are charming and quick to create, and lend themselves to cute accessories. And who knows, yours might be so attractive to the wee spirits that a real fairy might take up residence there. Do you believe?
