QUESTIONS
Q.   I'VE TRIED TO STOP BY TWICE, BUT YOU WERE CLOSED.  WHAT'S THE DEAL?

A.  WE'RE OPEN 6 DAYS A WEEK, 12 MONTHS A YEAR.  CLOSED ON MONDAYS.
AS WITH ALL GREENHOUSES, WE WILL VARY OUR HOURS A BIT TO
ACCOMODATE YOUR SCHEDULES DURING SUCH TIMES AS SPRING PLANTING
SEASON, CHRISTMAS, ETC.    OUR HOURS ARE ALWAYS POSTED HERE ON
OUR HOMEPAGE AND IN THE GREENHOUSE.  WHEN IN DOUBT, CALL US ANY
TIME OF DAY OR NIGHT.  OUR VOICEMAIL IS UPDATED DAILY TO REFLECT
HOURS AS WELL AS SPECIAL EVENTS WHICH MAY INTEREST YOU.
Q.   CAN YOU COME TO MY HOUSE AND HELP ME PLAN MY LANDSCAPE?

A.  UNFORTUNATELY, NO.  WHILE WE POSSESS THE KNOWLEDGE AND BACKGROUND
EXPERIENCE TO DO SO, WE PREFER TO CONCENTRATE ON WHAT OUR BUSINESS TRULY IS:
GROWING!   WE'LL GLADLY ASSIST YOU IN CHOOSING THE RIGHT PLANTS FOR YOUR
GARDEN BUT BELIEVE STRONGLY THAT GARDENS SHOULD BE A CREATION OF THE
INDIVIDUAL GARDENER(S).
Q.   I HAVE A PLANT IN MY GARDEN THAT I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS.  CAN YOU HELP?

A.  YES!  WE ASK THAT YOU BRING A SPECIMEN LEAF AND POSSIBLY A FLOWER TO AID US
IN MAKING A PROPER I.D.  WE ASK THAT YOU ENCLOSE YOUR SPECIMENS IN A ZIPLOC
BAG TO REDUCE THE CHANCES OF SPREADING ANYTHING TO OUR CROPS.  THIS REQUEST
ASLO GOES OUT TO THOSE OF YOU WITH INSECT OR OTHER POSSIBLE DISEASE ISSUES!
WE CAN HELP, BUT LET'S NOT SPREAD PROBLEMS TO ANYONE ELSE.
Q.  DO YOU CARRY DIFFERENT VARIETIES OF TREES AND SHRUBS?

WE WILL BE TAKING FULL ADVANTAGE OF OUR ACREAGE AND ARE LOOKING FORWARD

Q.  DO YOU CARRY PERENNIALS?

A.  OUR PRIMARY FOCUS AS OF THIS TIME IS ON HOUSEPLANTS, ANNUALS AND TROPICALS -
VARYING IN DEGREES OF RARENESS IN FORM AND COLOR FOR YOU.  HOWEVER, WE DO

DIMINISHED OUR ABILITY TO OFFER YOU MANY OF OUR OWN SELECTIONS.  THE OFFERINGS
WE DO HAVE ARE USUALLY LOVELY, SMALLER SPECIMENS.
Q.  CAN I GET FRESH-CUT FLOWERS DELIVERED FROM YOU?

A.  NO.  WE'RE STRICTLY A GREENHOUSE, NOT A FLORIST.  WE CAN CERTAINLY MAKE
