Live plants for sale


  • As you will see noted throughout this website, this is not a business. It is my back yard hobby. 
  • Periodically I have several of the plants posted here that I must sell off to make room in the greenhouse for different plants, etc. and to help off-set the cost of running the greenhouse, especially at the end of the summer as I prepare for the winter months.
  • Any information regarding the care from any of the plants listed here is based on either what has worked for me, what was on the plant’s seed package or what I have learned off of the internet from various sources. My personal experiences and opinions are clearly identified. It is your responsibility to research and determine the care you wish to provide the plant. 
  • When we meet, I encourage you to inspect the plant you are buying carefully before you decide to purchase it as once you walk away with it, the plant is yours; sorry, no returns.


Most of my sales are done locally. Below are methods in which I accept payment:

  1. If you are picking up your item and are local, I either accept cash or you can pay via credit card when you arrive.
