A Nurseryman’s Garden

A place for unusual plants, but not for words like “flow, palette, design” or my least favorite of all “organic”. This garden has been recently redesigned to reflect the loss of 2 large trees. Sun plants instead of shade, and easy walking paths around the stone edged raised beds, make for a stunning garden. Jim, the cohost of “MidSouth Gardening” Radio show is the perfect gardener to get all your questions answered.

Favorite Garden Tip : No plant wants to die before it’s time.  If it dies, you gave it something it didn’t want or it wanted something you didn’t give it.
