Monte Mecum, has an incredible nursery and garden center. I have nothing but really good, wonderful things, to say about him. My son won 20 rare blue and purple angel trumpet seeds from the 17 ft one growing at the Hemingway house in Key West, FL, and neither myself or my son could get them to sprout so we gave the last 4 of them left to Monte; and he got all four to Sprout!! He then let us have back the healthiest biggest plant of the four!!! Monte is just a really good person and most importantly he is a really good friend to my son. Sandra.

Montgomery's Garden Center just opened recently and it is a Truely Wonderful Place. Monte is specializing in rare and unique hard to find perennials and hard to find classics and old fashioned plants and groundcovers as well. The very first time i drove by i saw him setting up a huge table of large historic heirloom Iris fans from his personal garden and the varieities are every color of the rainbow and varieities you can no longer get through catalogs today. Also, on these front tables, he has every kind of perennial you can think of..salvias, sages..beebalms..lavenders you name it all the latest hard to find varieties, and if he doesent have he can order it for you and have it there faster and cheaper than any other greenhouse around. Upon walking to the Back he has all king of daylilies for sale lavender beauties, ruby stellas black stellas, antiques, and every kind of groundcover imaginable. i bought two beautiful Blue Angel hosta plants from him. He has Mulch galore huge piles of every color black, tan, brown.etc and inside fertilizers galore as well, and again if he doesnt have it he'll order it for you. Monte is certified in Agricultural chemicals and has a long standing background in organic gardening, biochemistry and horticulture, and i have never meet anyone as knowledgable in this subject as he, infact he is a wealth of knowledge in just about anything. Just a really Nice Soul, from now on im going to be doing all my gardening buisness with him. Highly Recommended AAAAA++++++++++
