We have plants! In spite of lots of hiccups in the horticulture industry this spring.
Remember the freezing weather & ice storms in the South this year? It devastated the plant supply chain, as cuttings sat in unheated FedEx hubs and trucks the bellies of jet planes, unable to move. Hundreds of thousands of cuttings froze. Those cuttings could not be replaced for several weeks until the stock plants re-grew. Hence, nationwide, there was a shortage of young plants, including our favorite spotted petunias, Night Sky & Electric Purple Sky. Our entire order of spotted petunias was canceled.
And yet, because we are so Amazing!, we got super lucky and we have a supply. Plus Bees Knees, one of the best yellow petunias ever, it grows just like a Wave Petunia. And more amazing, hard to find varieties. We finally have everything we need safely on the premises and growing happily.
When we will be open:
We traditionally open around the third week in April, weather depending, and when we set the opening date we will spread the word via this website, our facebook page, and our email newsletter. If you filled out a Plant Card in the last couple of years you will get a post-card in the mail as well.
What about Covid?
Our staff is in the process of becoming vaccinated but we will still require masks on the premises at all times until the Governor lifts the mandate and all staff are fully vaccinated. We think we have figured out a way to do online ordering and after-hours curbside pickup successfully for those who are uncomfortable wearing masks. This might also be useful for people who work during our normal business hours. Stay tuned. Once it is all set up, we’ll post the link on this website, facebook, and send out an e-newsletter.
How to stay informed:
The plants are keeping us super busy, but we hope to keep the website and facebook updated. If you have any questions, you can always telephone us at (603) 878-9876 and leave a message. (That is our landline, so it is not capable of receiving texts.)
Remember, gardening and tending plants in and around your home is one of the healthiest lifestyles available!
Come get some fantastic perennials. They’ll keep blooming for years to come. In this new slideshow Devon tells you about some of them.
(We’ve just begun expanding into audio with our slideshows. Please address any complaints to In the Doghouse Department at Wonderful Husband Productions.)

A wide selection of healthy annuals, perennials, vegetable starter plants, and more grown on site in an environmentally responsible manner using natural controls instead of pesticides.
We specialize in unusual and hard-to-find plants. Our helpful and knowledgeable staff takes great pride in growing healthy plants using natural controls instead of pesticides. We use environmentally-friendly growing methods including raising our vegetables and vegetable starter plants organically in waste-free peat pots that return to the earth, heating our greenhouses with locally produced wood pellets instead of fossil fuels, using state-of-the-art greenhouse structures that minimize electric needs and plastic waste, and utilizing water conservation techniques. We work very hard to live up to our name!
We also produce and sell our own well-aged chicken manure that makes vegetable gardens happy and productive.
