Plantworks Blog


As the year 2017 draws to a close, we will be retiring the blog for Plantworks Nursery. We have enjoyed the posts, pictures, and information that has been shared here, but changes come to all, and folks in the Green Industry know that best.

We will be taking the extra time to work with our other social media outlets, making them accessible, and more interactive, for our clients. Plantworks can still be found on the following media sites:

We are more than happy to speak with clients directly. Feel free to call the office during business hours (Monday-Friday; 8AM- 4:30PM), or email us at We encourage client interaction, and community talking points. We hope to always be available whenever you need assistance!

Thanks for your business and good wishes!

Happy Planting!
