I’m Colleen and grow all the plants for the sale. I do not have a greenhouse, but love to propagate plants, so everything is grown outdoors, which makes it very cold hardy. During the winter I propagate spores, seeds and cuttings in my basement. I love to experiment with new varieties but also grow

many tried and true favorites. I appreciate all your suggestions and use your feedback to make improvements to my sale every year. I enjoy answering your questions and solving your gardening dilemmas.
