Visiting the Nursery: Call Before You Come!

The nursery will remain open by appointment through the winter months.  We welcome visitors during this time and simply ask that you call or email us before you come.  Regular weekend hours will resume early next March when visitors can see many alpine plants in full flower.

You will see some changes at the nursery during your next visit.  We have built two new hoophouses to better protect our plants during the increasingly harsh winter weather.  While most of our plants are fully cold hardy when planted in the ground, those in pots benefit from this added protection.  Another big plus will be our improved ability to protect early season flowers from spring hailstorms, a frequent occurrence at our location in the foothills of the Cascades.

Mail order shipments will continue through the end of November as weather conditions permit.  The 2011 mail order catalog will be online in January and shipments will resume based on customer’s locations beginning in February of 2011.
