Due to evolving and changing inventory please email Jan Emming if you are seeking a particular plant that you do not see mentioned. I usually have it or know where to find it for you.

Payment: cash, check, money order, Venmo, PayPal or Zelle. There is no order form on this website, since maintaining a current and accurate inventory and automatic ordering list would be prohibitively time-consuming. Email Jan or call him to discuss your needs in person. Once we have determined what you need and that we can help you, we will arrange payment via one of the methods above.
