Hello! And welcome to my blog on growing perennials for shade.
I have been in the nursery industry for many years and have always dreamed of owning my own nursery. Now here I am starting up a very — and I mean VERY– small enterprise at my home in Vermont. I won’t be opening a retail operation and I will be growing in small batches, mostly from seed. My focus is on native wildflowers for the woodland garden, which is mainly where I garden on a small lake with a stream running through our small property.
My plants will be for sale at various horticulture events around New England. Check back often for news of more opportunities to purchase my special plants.
I am also focusing on growing Primula of all sorts that are hardy to zone 4. I’m a board member of the American Primrose Society where I am also the seed exchange manager. The New England chapter of the APS is a large and active group of which I am also the membership chair. If you have any questions on Primroses just drop me a line in the comments and I’ll be happy to talk Primroses!
I work for a small specialty nursery Rocky Dale Gardens in Bristol, so between my job, this new nursery at my home and the Primrose Society I am quite busy, but I still get out hiking whenever I can with my husband, camera in hand just in case we come across another incredible wildflower or seed collecting opportunity!
Thanks for stopping in and please share your experiences or just say hi!
