Dates We Will Be Closed

Labor Day Weekend Friday September 1st thru 4th  

We are mainly a mail-order nursery, but you are welcome to stop by and purchase plants. We have a little cooler climate due to our elevation so flowers start growing in mid April and different things will bloom throughout the rest of the summer. There is not one certain time to see everything bloom as they all have their bloom times. If you know what you want send us a list ahead of time and we can have it ready for you to pickup and save you some time. If you would like to come and just browse you are welcome to do so. During our shipping season (March - June & Sept - December) we are very busy on Monday's and Tuesday's so be patient if you come on these days. Our hours are as follows:
