This was a spur of the moment stop as we passed through the area. You don't need to really plan for a long time here, but it is worth a stop if you're a gardener. We found some neat tomato varieties, and they have all...More

What an interesting mission! I really enjoyed walking through the clean, organized gift shop. They have an amazing selection of seeds, gardening tools, and books. The grounds are just gorgeous -- gardens, trails, barns, animals. Definitely worth the drive out of town.

This place didn't open until 10:00. Was small and out of our way. Had few plants out. No cell phone reception.

There are many seeds and plants not available anywhere else. Garden supplies, crafts, home goods, decor and a beautiful location make this a must stop if you are in the area. You can also walk the grounds to enjoy the walking paths and the property.
