poor product support
Nov 2020
used a large bag of midwest mix for fall planting. A few small wildflowers came up early and then all I got was monster (8 ft) sunflowers and queen annes lace and fery few of the pictured wildflowers. Been doing this for over 40 years and never had an experience like this. Contacted them and it is all my fault for rototilling and stiring up weed seeds. Wrong, since what I got was not weeds. Offered me a discount on more seeds but I would rather pay full price elsewhere.

Thank you for your review! Yes, we sold our Charlotte property in January of 2017 as we outgrew the property. We are in the process of transitioning to a new larger location. In the meantime, we are working from our annex store. This location does not have retail and only small gardens. We are open by appt. only for customer order pick-ups at this time.

Out of business, very sad
May 2018 • Solo
I went here years ago and loved it. Beautiful fields of all kinds of flowers and plaques with the names of
the species. Really nice gift shop too. Drove by today and it is an empty building and just grass, no more flowers. The only thing remaining is the name on the building. Very sad. I don't know what happened, as I live out of state and just visited while here on vacation.

For flower gardening enthusiasts
May 2016 • Couples
First off, I love to garden with wildflowers so I'm probably a little biased... Keep that in mind.
It's a nice store, it's not big or small, it big for what it sells but small for a store in general. It has the largest selection of species that I have ever seen, if you garden with wildflowers you simply must see the selection they have.
The area behind the store has a path through a field of wildflowers. It's nice but not very long, you could walk it in about 15 minutes. The flowers in bloom depend on the time of year so it isn't filled with flowers all the time, there tends to be a few species blooming at one time. The main attraction is the store in my opinion, the path is just an example of how a wildflower garden could look. All in all its a nice place and I find their pricing is reasonable. The seeds I have bought from them are top quality, far better than seeds you would get at a lowes or Home Depot.

Small, with some nice flowers
Jun 2016 • Couples
A field of wildflowers. Depending on when you visit, different flowers are in bloom. Saw a field of poppies which made a colorful statement. Signs describing different flowers to look for are along the trail in the fields. There is also a wooded trail, that goes behind the open fields. Nice gift shop. Worth the visit if you have time.

worth a quick look
Jul 2014 • Family
This is just a store. The attraction is their little nature walk through the wildflower field. That part was nice, but bring bug spray if you continue through the woodsy part of the walk. We were eaten alive by mosquitoes in just five minutes. The store had some unique and interesting items like huckleberry jam. Plus lots and lots of seeds. If you go to the Echo Aquarium in Burlington first, you can get a coupon sheet that has a discount for any purchase here.

Finally visited where all my flower seeds come from!
Jul 2014 • Solo
I have been ordering seeds from this establishment for years, and finally had an opportunity to visit their store. I had no idea that they had a garden path, so that was an extra treat. There is a field of wildflowers with informational signs, then the path winds by a pond, and through wetlands and woods. A nice little respite.
I would not really consider this a tourist attraction, or plan a day around it, but if you need seeds, or are near the Shelburne Museum, its a nice quick stop.

Great Place To Walk Amongst Wildflowers
Sep 2013 • Couples
Stopped here with my wife and my cousin and his wife to view the Wildflowers. We walked through a field and through a forest and pond to view and identify Wildflowers. After the walk we visited the gift shop to buy seeds for our own wildflower gardens. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

Nice but short trails
Jul 2013 • Family
We were in the area so decided to stop by. It was a very hot day and the wildflowers were quite wilted. The gift shop is nice, and we received a free wildflower seed packet with our purchase. There is no water fountain or real bathroom. The porta potty in the parking lot was quite unpleasant. We were out of water, so we bought a couple of bottles for $1 dollar each. The trail went through the wildflower field, and then into the woods for a bit and by a marsh. To get much of a walk in you would have to do the loop several times.

Pretty spot when summer flowers are in bloom
Jul 2013 • Family
If you are in the area during mid-late summer, this is a nice spot to visit. It's not far from all the other Charlotte attractions, so this is a good place to start your day. They have wild flowers planted out back of the building and a trail that takes you through the woods, but I wouldn't go out there without bug spray because the mosquitoes are plentiful. You can find all kinds of stuff for your garden.
