From the beginning, it was our
aim to grow the best plants possible
and to offer things that were not
always available in other places.
The first real plunge was adding a
line of cactus and succulents. These
plants were the passion of Martha.
She has since retired
are still one of our specialties. Other
passions led to herbs, tropical
plants and roses.
Our main plant sales were of vegetable and annuals. In the early years our customers had almost no interest in perennials.
Now they are a major, major part of our crops and interest continues to increase. The demand for plants for ponds is great and
we also have branched out into orchids and carnivorous plants. Bonsai
fascinates second daughter, Helen, and there is interest
in trough gardening
so that may show up in a few years.
