Time to Plant Winter Veggies

We have plants ready to go for your winter garden. Kale, broccoli, cabbage ,cauliflower, lettuce and more. We continuously start more plants throughout the season so you can succession plant throughout fall, winter & early spring. This way you have a continual supply of your own home grown and healthy vegetables. We grown our starts right here in Three Rivers at the nursery, so they are already acclimated to local conditions. We use only organic potting soil, organic fertilizer & organic practices.
