HOW TO ORDER
Can I Come And Shop Around During Covid-19?
Since we are a private nursery, and dealing with the Corona virus, we prefer that you try to do your shopping from our website if at all possible. After you order, we will get your plants together for you so that you can pick them up in our parking lot.
But If you have a good working knowledge of plants, you can let us know when you'd like to stop by to have look at what we have on the benches. You can then tell us what you pick out and then pay using Paypal. There are no cash sales for now.
HOW TO ORDER
Look at what we have available on the website; it is updated frequently.
If a product says sold out, that means none are available at the moment but a 2nd and 3rd crop will be available at some point.
Choose your plants by adding to your shopping cart.
After you submit your order, we will check to make sure your plants are available and then we will contact you via email that is indicated on your Paypal confirmation.
Your order will be gathered and prepared for you to pick up. At least one plant of any variety will be tagged so that you know what you have.
Your order will then be placed in one of our colored wheelbarrows or metal carts. We will let you know your color wheelbarrow. All wheelbarrows are placed in our parking lot which is on the left as you drive in.
If you have any questions, send me a text at 571-283-3163
WHAT IF WE ARE OUT OF PLANT?
DO WE USE PESTICIDES?
We avoid pesticide use as much as possible and try to only use organics when needed. On plants like asclepias (butterfly weed) this means that you will often find aphids on the plants which you can easily blow off with a jet of water. Organic growing means might have to tolerate a certain amount of pests or leaf spots.
For common problems like powdery mildew, we use organic copper or plant oils for its control.
In regards to fertilizer, we no longer use organics because growing containerized plants is not like growing in the ground. Even organics can run off and get into waterways. So instead, we use a slow release type of fertilizer similar to Osmocote. This results in much less runoff of nutrients.
