You can also read about our sanitation practices hereWhile we had a steady flow of traffic for our April sales, no more than five people were browsing at a time, so no waiting was required. Some customers even got the place to themselves for awhile, allowing them time and space to think thoroughly about their selections, laying them out in a mock design before purchasing.

M R Gardens grows in a passive solar greenhouse so that no heat is needed other than solar gain, and uses peat-free sustainable potting mixes. Plants are grown on a small scale so that individual attention can be given to plants, ensuring high quality. We primarily focus on native perennials and other plants that are beneficial to the garden ecosystem. Contact or 828.333.4151 (office line - not text) with questions. 

Thank you for helping make the 2020 nursery season a success so far. We're sending continued blessings to you - and hope you are staying well.
