We Love Our Customers

Okay seriously, if you love your veggie garden, do yourself a favor and get their soil. It's absolutely amazing. So far, my favorite product of 2023. I can't wait to start seedlings in this stuff next spring. I jokingly call it miracle dirt to my husband everytime we talk about how crazy happy my plants are this year.

We purchased a hydrangea tree and they provided beautiful tree! All we did was pick out tree out and the rest was done by them with getting our yard marked delivered and installed. Absolutely the easiest thing my family has ever done. They provide all the information on the tree and how to take care of it. Thank you for everything!

This nursery is amazing! I'm from the Black Hills and was visiting the area. Ended up going twice. Great selection of hostas, even in fall. Good prices. Loved the bargain trees and bought two. VERY full car when i headed West again. Highly recommend!

Very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable employees. Great selection, healthy plants at competitive prices.

I bought three trees here over the past several years with relative success. They give good instructions about planting and initial care. While most of the folks I have been helped by were nice - one had pretty terrible customer service skills - they also have been a bit overzealous about being able to fit the trees in my vehicle.
Purchased this beautiful Redbud Tree a year ago early April. Look at it now! Just returned to buy a Golden Pagoda Dogwood and Witch Hazel. Wow, their plants look so good.
