Spring at White House Nursery is a kaleidoscope of vegetation and flowers.
Spring Open House is the last full weekend in April, come join us!
We grow too many different plant types and varieties to name each one, but there is something for everyone. From the newest to traditional varieties, native to exotic plants, culinary to arranging specimens, from sturdy perennials to delicate annuals and climbing vines, we grow garden standards and those unique, hard to find plants. Each plant has its own growing schedule so the greenhouse plants are always changing! We start filling our greenhouses in early February planting, sowing and rooting the flowers you’ll want to have. Our hanging baskets are gorgeous; you’ll love our combo baskets too. Below is a partial listing of what we plant each year:
