Greenhouse 1991
Main Greenhouse 4-17-17

We built the greenhouse in 1991 and adopted a “learn as you grow” philosophy from the start and feel we can be more honest when answering questions and relating to concerns gardeners in this area have because we deal with those issues too. Water use, deer browsing, plant hardiness, and environmental challenges are real concerns and ones that we address every growing season right along with our customers. And while we would never claim to have all the answers, we can share what we’ve tried and can steer just-getting-started gardeners towards problem solving solutions that have worked for us and help them avoid making the same mistakes we’ve learned from..

1992 Southern Greenhouse 4-17-17 Display Area Benching 4-17-17

After a few years of fighting the elements, we built a smaller greenhouse to grow perennial bareroot stock, liner transplants, and seasonal leftovers through fall and into spring. This spring, this smaller greenhouse is a transition area for early season annuals like Pansies. We also constructed display area benching to transition the perennials from the southern greenhouse into the home landscape. As growers, we don’t bring in anything “ready to sell”. At first, we grew all of the annuals and perennials we offered from seed. Now we bring in perennials and annual liners/plugs from large growers who cater to small greenhouses just like us.

Shrubs Fall 2016 Containerized shrubs were brought in through fall and bumped up from black plastic pots into larger sized pulp pots and wintered over here so they could break dormancy according to our spring weather conditions. We also brought in shrubs as bareroot plants in mid-March and potted them up into pulp pots. Mycorrhiza is incorporated into the Sungrow/Soil Pep around the root system, and the plant is top-dressed with Osmocote.

Customers are relieved when they hear that they can plant the plant in the pulp pot and the root system has everything it will need to succeed that first season. Growing plants here rather than bringing them in ready to sell has given us some ability to control the quality of the finished product.
