Bedding plants for Ephrata, Lancaster County, & the surrounding areas

Our customers come from all over to shop for our plants, and many have been coming to our greenhouses every spring since our early years. Many of our plants, including our Proven Winners, have been tested to perform well in this area’s climate and seasons. Whether your are choosing flowers for shade or sun, or to plant in a pot or landscape, we strive to start the healthiest plants we can for you.

Quality Bedding Plants Grown From Seed

How are we able to sell our plants at our low prices and maintain quality? We grow many of our varieties of plants from seed, which allows us to save money on shipping, and pass the value along to our customers.

A bigger benefit, though, is growing our plants from seed allows us to grow healthy, hardy plants from little on up. In fact, many of our plants are “hardened off” or put in colder and harsher conditions increasingly in order to produce a healthier and stronger plant.

  • Wave petunias: $1 a pot!
