New For 2021

What’s New?

We are temporarily closed for a “long winter’s nap.” But we can meet you by appointment during the month of January. Just call Rick’s cell (618-567-7841) or try the garden center (618-234-4600) and we just might pick up!

It might be the dead of winter but we are busy getting ready for the best spring ever. To get you thinking spring, check out these plants that have won national attention. They are simply the best of the best. Selected for their easy care and excellent performance, at least one needs a spot in your garden.
