Long Description:
This nursery is run by a very friendly and accommodating couple who have put a great deal of labour into the place. They are currently turning an outdoor sales/display area into another permanent greenhouse.

They produce the standard fare of bedding plants, accent plants, trees, shrubs, etc., and sell seeds and garden art and paraphernalia. Adjacent to the office is a very pretty specimen garden with a natural spring, a lily pond, and chickens to keep the place bug free.

Their address is 3705 Koochin Road, which is off of Hardy Mountain Rd. on the north end of Grand Forks. Once you're on Hardy Mountain Rd., just follow the signs.
(The view really is better than the pic shows.)
