I sent a co-worker there to find a tree that she had been having trouble finding in stock locally. Employees had been very helpful on the phone, and equally helpful when she arrived. She found a beautiful specimen on sale. And now, she thinks that I'm very smart for sending her there:) What's not to like about that?!
It's a wonderful place with lots of helpful people, especially Dave. Go with your wish list and he will walk around with you and find all the plants as well as give advice on when and how to plant what you've purchased.
There is a lot more of the place then what you see out front. There is a beautiful area in the woods, filled with trees and shrubs. There's a mailbox in the woods with leaflets explaining the characteristics of the trees and shrubs.
I always purchase more than I can plant but eventually it all gets into the ground. I don't know a gardener that doesn't have this problem.
