We have Valentine's Day gifts you won't find anywhere else, many handmade here at the nursery. And we've got the ingredients to make your own creations, plus workshops to provide inspiration and instruction.
Gardening feels very much like an act of caring, even loving. That's why we think sharing garden bounty with a loved one feels so good. Gathering a bouquet from your garden to give, creating a tiny gift garden, cultivating fresh veggies and fruits to share, or planting a tree to please or honor a loved one – these gestures convey love and caring like no other.
