Does locally grown really make a difference?
You bet it does! Day length, temperature, climate, and other seasonal changes all play a role in a plants growth. Because the plants we grow are already accustomed to our Southern Oregon area they are given a generous head start over plants grown farther away and trucked in from different growing regions. While some larger nursery stock can handle a long ride, bedding plants are a bit tenderer and do much better grown closer to home. We are committed to only growing varieties that we personally believe in and know will perform in our unique Southern Oregon climate.
