34th Annual Open House and Santa visiting Saturday, Dec. 2nd from 10 am-2 pm

Come join us during our 34th annual Open House Weekend which will feature hot cider and delicious Christmas cookies for you to enjoy. We will also offer wine, cheese, and crackers for you to snack on while you browse the retail shop and the holiday Design Studio in the greenhouse. Shop in a festive, relaxed atmosphere while enjoying the scent of fresh greenery.

Hours are Saturday, 9 am to 5 pm and Sunday, 10 am to 4 pm.


On Saturday only, between the hours of 10 am and 2 pm, Santa will be here, sitting in his big white rocking chair and greeting those who want to spend a few minutes sharing their holiday wish list. It’s a great photo opportunity for family, friends and pets too.

The retail shop is loaded with ornaments, seasonal planters, terrariums, houseplants, garden related books and many special items you’ll be able to check off your gift giving list. To decorate your home, we’ll have fresh greens, roping, wreaths, beautiful handmade bows and fresh cut Christmas trees.
Our helpful staff will provide lots of creative ideas. If you would like designs similar to what you’ve done in the past, we keep excellent records- count on us to make it easy. Bring in your containers from past years to develop an item to wow you once again. Start making your list and stop by to check off some of those difficult to buy for friends and relatives with some nature-inspired gifts. We’re here to help. Let’s enjoy the holiday season together!

You’ll find…bees + butterflies + angels + fresh greens + gardening books + ribbons + bows + incense + honey + quality tools + childrens items + indoor bulbs + miniature live plants + houseplants + tea cups + jewelry + educational toys + wreaths + candles + soaps + terrariums + so much more
