then later expanded to add evergreens and other nursery plants. After 75 years, our vegetable stand has grown to be the largest one-stop outdoor living area around. Some of our specialties include a full-service florist, Wedel-grown nursery plants, landscape services,  over 600 varieties of Wedel-grown perennial plants, and the experts to help you have gardening success!
