We are sorry to say that we have had to make a change in our parking policy for our Weekday Retail hours. Parking at the Nursery gate will be limited to volunteers and customers with limited mobility. We ask that all other customers park within the designated areas of the Hillen Rd. parking lot near the stone house and then walk down to the nursery. Don’t worry – our volunteers and staff will help transport you and your plants back to your vehicle! We appreciate your understanding and patience, and apologize for any inconvenience.
