We have over forty years of horticultural experience and can also help answer many general gardening questions. Please feel free to contact us at 952-443-2248 or 877-211-9769. Please leave a message if we are not available. During the growing season, e-mail is perhaps the best way to make an initial contact with our staff. We are located very near the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum and a visit to our nursery location would be a perfect complement to your next visit there. Staff at both locations can offer you much helpful advice.

As you are undoubtedly aware, the Internet is loaded with plant information, some good and some bad. To help you in researching additional perennial data, we recommend the following sites for their accurate and relevant information.
