About Us

What our customers are saying

The staff took the time to explain what plants work well with each other and when the appropriate time was to plant certain herbs and vegetables based on the likelihood of frost. I'm a novice‚ so I appreciate that they not only have lovely plants‚ but are knowledgeable and willing to share their knowledge.

Keep up the great work! I've been going there for over 30 years — it's a great asset to the community — and gardeners of Charlottesville!
