Spring Open Nursery & Garden is Just Around the Corner

It's hard to believe that spring open nursery and garden days is almost here.

Take advantage of shopping our sales houses for many unique and rare perennials, many exclusively available at Plant Delights Nursery.

Many are from our own breeding program at Juniper Level Botanic Garden and include two 2019 introductions you will find no where else.

Ark, Ark…is that rain we hear?

In a matter of two days, most of our region went from abnormally dry to saturated, when an unusual weather system tracked across our area.  Not to worry...we've loaded two each of every plant on the green arc for safe keeping.

We tallied 5.5" of rain at the nursery, while areas a few miles away registered almost 9 inches.  As you've no doubt seen on the news, areas in and around creeks and rivers are underwater.  Fortunately, we're fine as all our time spent on water management preparation paid dividends.  

The gardens looks absolutely fabulous, so we hope to see you at our 2017 Spring Open Nursery and Garden which starts today (Friday).  We've prepared a special display of the new xMangaves (agave x manfreda hybrids) on the deck area, so we hope you'll stop by and check out this amazing new category of drought-tolerant succulents for both containers and the garden.  See you soon!
