Come and see our large assortment of hanging baskets, ferns, bedding plants, lantana, Proven Winners, Wave Petunias, geraniums, perennials, trees, and shrubs.

Small Space Spring Vegetable Gardening Demonstration

Come out March 7th at 11:00, to see how to put a small space to work for you at our demonstration garden. Our small space grows enough broccoli, lettuce, mesclun, red kale, kohlrabi, Brussels sprouts and spinach for our family and others.


These vegetables are grown around our water tank and pump house. Come learn how to prepare soil, make amendments, and mulch plants.


We will have cold hardy spring vegetable plants including broccoli, collards, cabbage, leaf lettuce (red and green), Swiss chard, mescclun mix, Buttercrunch lettuce, Romaine lettuce, kohlrabi, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, strawberries, and spinach ready for sell around the first of March. We will also have small bags of red and white seed potatoes and bags of red and yellow onion sets.

Our summer vegetables will include pickling cucumbers, slicing cucumbers, burpless cucumbers, straight neck squash, crook neck squash, zucchini, red, yellow, and green bell peppers, hot and sweet banana peppers, cayenne peppers, habernero, jalapeño peppers, over 15 varieties of tomatoes, okra, egg plant, watermelon, and cantaloupe. The first crops will be ready around the first week of April and should have others through June.

Plant a Row for the Hungry  

 We are sponsoring a local Plant A Row for the Hungry for the second time this year. Plant A Row for the Hungry is a people-helping-people program to help feed the hungry in local neighborhoods and communities.

We are asking Stokes County businesses, community organizations, and individuals to join us and help with fresh food donations by adding a row in their garden for those in need and donating the extra harvest to a local food agency, soup kitchen or hunger relief organization. We will kick off our campaign on Saturday April 18th.  Take the pledge and get a free starter pack (vegetable plants, row marker, and bag of Daddy Pete’s Manure) while supplies last. Help make a difference in Stokes and surrounding counties.


Mix Container Demonstration

Just in time for Mother’s day, give her a beautiful container that will last all summer.

Saturday, April 25th at 10:00 join us for a seminar on mixed container gardens. Jim will give tips on how to plant mixed containers that will bloom all summer. Bring your own container or buy one of ours to plant. Choose from our large selection of plants.
