Display plantings show a variety of concepts: plants’ growth habits, how to mix compatibility, soil and sun preferences, color combinations, various garden styles, mixing of material such as dwarf evergreens with succulents in rock gardens, how plants evolve over the seasons, what needs pruning and what stays compact, and so much more. All in all, a display garden helps visitors visualize plants in their own landscapes.
A walk around our grounds is really a garden tutorial. You will learn about garden styles, plant compatibility and plant requirements, such as sun, shade and soil. The gardens demonstrate color combinations, leaf texture, flower style and height variables. Some gardens have a mixture of plant material including shrubs, dwarf trees, perennial and bulbs all in a relatively small space. There are evergreens grown en masse and allowed to reach their full height. We also have neatly pruned hedges that are examples of living fences.
The gardens at the nursery change with the seasons so we suggest you visit whenever you feel your landscape is looking a little dull to see what is going on in our gardens. Visiting the nursery can be a much-needed break from a hectic day. If it is muddy, bring boots as there are no paved roads. While we do not supply bikes or horses, you are welcome to ride either as long as you keep to the field paths. Be sure to bring a notebook and camera!
