About Us

Nestled in a grove of Red Cedar trees, our small, family owned nursery has been a source of inspiration since the late 1980’s. We specialize in unusual annuals, perennials and shrubs hardy to our Midwest climate. We offer a wide selection of miniature shrubs and have an extensive hosta collection.

Ricki's Notes

  • Spring Shades of Green

    Winter has been too long for us, not near enough 40 degree weather. Our wood pile is nearly depleted, so springtime can not come too soon. Thankfully, the greenhouse has tiny pansies showing a hint of color and the hellebores are beginning to unfurl a leaf or two. Our perennials are still snuggled under their winter blankets, soon the Hosta of the Year "World Cup" will add a bright sparkling color to your garden. The perennial of the year "Allium Millenium" is a butterfly magnet and is truly a workhorse for the summer garden.
    We have given the shop a little TLC and the shelves now hold some fabulous Whichford pottery as well as new glazed pots in Emerald green and shades of St. Thomas blue. A new terracotta group of pots aptly named, Foxglove, should arrive the first of April. A birdbath with stone birds or a low heart shaped bird bowl will turn your shady garden into a birdsong retreat. Our new aged garden bench and metal French garden pots are perfect for your patio and old brick molds and architectural relics make terrific conversation pieces for inside and out. Our realistic fern wreaths will add a touch of Spring to your front door and the scent of our Fresh Rain candle will surely give you Spring Fever! Looking forward to seeing you in March! Naturally, Ricki

  • Feather Your Nest

    Another season is upon us and I'm hoping some of those cool days and rain in August, make their way to September. The flowers of Autumn are beginning to cast their warm golden tones into the garden. Those late summer annuals give a colorful edge along the garden path and my summer perennials with a timely haircut are beginning to rebloom just in time for fall. The lower greenhouse has been busy with the planting of new hostas and spring iris. Miniature iris are going to be perfect for the front of the garden border. Hydrangeas have soaked up all that moisture and are filled with burgundy russet blooms. Keep in mind this fall should be a terrific time to plant spring blooming perennials, colorful peonies and garden shrubs.

  • Glimpses of Spring

    Spring 2017....where does time go? I have been writing this letter for over 30 years and cannot remember a February so dry. I hope all of you have been watering during this warm spell. The weather has certainly given me the garden fever. I didn't even bug Jim to send me to Santa Fe! I've been cleaning up my hellebores as they are blooming under the leaves. I am going to hope for no more bitterly cold days. Inside the greenhouse, the prettiest hellebores we have ever grown are blooming at this time. And a new crop of 'Red Charm' peonies have big fat buds. With bright hues of purple and blushes of coral the heucheras are nearly ready for planting in the garden.
