Products and Services:
We are a full service garden center and carry annuals, perennials, herbs, trees, shrubs, flowering containers, houseplants, pottery, plant care items, mulches and fertilizers.

We really are in the beauty and health business. By growing plants with great characteristics we are able to create beauty that inspires, relaxes, creates memories, and if the customer chooses to work in the garden, even physical exercise that enhances their health. Our herbs enhance the favor of food. Many customers believe the use of herbs enhances their lives... Many customers come to us for flowering gifts so they can provide beauty to their friends. Many customers are now decorating their back yards and entrance ways with our inspirational flowering containers. To learn more about our business:

Philosophy:
Money spent at a locally owned business is recycled in the neighborhood about 6 times. If the purchase is made at a national chain the money is only re-spent about 3 times. It sure helps the local economy if purchases are made with a locally owned store. The variety of plants is limited at the large chains. My concern is that if we do not keep enough independent greenhouse/garden center operations, many unique plants will be lost. Our goal is sustainability.

History:
Our business began in the summer of 1977 when I sold cabbage at the Dane County Farmer's Market in Madison.

In the summer of 1978, Carol and I started our pick-your-own vegetable business and planted our first three acres of strawberries on a 95 acre farm near Marshall. We became a regular at the farmer's market in Madison.

We continued to expand into greenhouses, and in 1992 moved the last greenhouses from Marshall to Cottage Grove along with building a few more.

In the fall of 1996, we began to build 35,000 square feet of ultra modern open roof greenhouses. We built additional greenhouses over the years and now have a total of about 83,000 square feet.

In 1999, we began to get serious about retail and have continued to refine and expand our present retail location.

We continue to expand, growing more perennials and shrubs.
