Green Thumb Nursery has been my family’s go-to for landscaping plants, annual flowers, and Christmas trees for over 20 years. Ray and Beth at GTN give all of their customers the warmest welcome, and are extremely knowledgeable and helpful about plants and landscaping design. When planning our landscaping for our first home, we showed them a picture of our house, and they drew out a design and suggested plants that would work well together in each space. If you want genuine, personalized service with a wide selection of beautiful, well-taken care of plants, shop local and support this family-owned nursery.
