About the Nursery
Summer blooms, winter branches against the sky, spring fragrance, fall colors as leaves change, all are represented in a wide varity of deciduous and evergreen trees in miniature.
My belief is that no garden should be without the charm of plants in miniature. They speak to us deeply of nature and our connection to it, in the voices of trees, mirroring the harmony of nature in a scale that is intimate.
