Visiting the nursery

Most of the year, our nursery is open by appointment only. During the spring and fall we have some days when we are open without an appointment. For our current schedule, please see our home page.

Please call Lyndon at (828) 669-6517 to schedule your visit. We only have a couple visitors each week, so making appointments ensures that we will be there to help you. We look forward to seeing you!

We can only accept cash and checks at the nursery. We don't have cell access for credit cards.
