Mary's Plant Farm
To those who might be new to us, Mary's Plant Farm is not a garden center, it is a small farm, where the plants are field grown. Our perennial plant list is extensive including many shade and native varieties. Also many varieties of flowering shrubs and understory trees, plus unusual and hard to find flowering shade trees. For over 70 years, I have been growing the ordinary and unusual in plants. Some of which were handed down from my parents garden and are not readily available. If you do not see it listed or are having difficulty finding a specific variety, let us know. It might be available but not in enough quantity to list.
This catalog serves not only mail order customers, but as a guide to those who come to the nursery. In some instances there may be a number of different sizes in a particular plant, and due to limited catalog space not listed as such. Some prices may vary in the nursery from the catalog price, as cash and carry is often times less.
Visitors are always welcome to browse our English style perennial borders, natural areas, rockery of Apple Tree Herb Garden. On any given day our customers are doing just that, viewing the growth habits of perennials both woody, evergreen and herbaceous, seeing what growing conditions each prefer. Groups who wish a guided tour are asked to make reservations. We enjoy meeting new gardening friends and sharing our gardening experiences.
For years we have landscaped gardens and trouble spots. Most of our landscape business has come to us by recommendations from our previous customers. We pride ourselves in designing gardens that look as though they have grown there naturally and not contrived by man. Planting the right material for its growing situation is paramount. English garden designs are a specialty, but we are also proud of our contemporary designs. We use stone or brick walls where necessary or elevate the ground naturally to achieve the effect needed. Your landscaping should look unique to your home, not a copy of your neighbor's.
We have a wide selection of brass garden plaques, pewter windchimes, garden statuary, tables and benches. Along with the natural color concrete, which ages out to a stone look, we have a terra cotta colored concrete for planters and urns, which will tolerate the winter weather. Many of the pieces we sell are offered in many national garden magazines. We also have a large selection of Barley clay birdbaths and patio containers.
