Garden Tour in Philadelphia, Part IV: pictures from the beautiful Linden Hill Gardens retail nursery for rare plants

Can a retail plant nursery be beautiful? Yes. These pictures do not do justice to the beautiful display gardens, outbuildings, and farm animals that make this a truly delightful place.

"We scour our favorite plant sources for weird and wonderful perennials, shrubs, trees, and climbers to please even the pickiest plant geek, and we raise a wide variety of new and heirloom annuals and edibles from seed. We don’t do mail-order, so we invite you to visit our retail site in Ottsville, Pennsylvania (see About Us for information and directions)."

I love the farm setting and your picture of the nursery takes me back to some pretty farms in Pennsylvania that I saw during college.

HG, when did you come to Linden Hill? You could have said hello! I'd have liked to meet you.

Nan,

We were there last Sunday. We'd love to meet you and see your gardens. Perhaps some time this summer?

The last few weeks are kind of a blur, but I think I was working down in the Deer-Resistant Garden that day. Let me know when you plan to come up to Linden Hill again, and if I'm working that day, I'd be glad to show you around.
