Nils Sundquist was a gardener first and a nurseryman by extension, and he believes no nursery is complete without gardens. Sundquist Nursery's location is unique in that it allows very different gardens, ranging from damp and shady to dry and sunny, and from pastoral to semi-formal, all within a short walk of each other. This allows Nils to garden rather wantonly. He's taking full advantage of the opportunity!
Sundquist Nursery opens the gardens to the public several times annually. With the exception of occasional openings for organized groups, these dates are the only times we are open to the public.
We sell plants on our open days to defray the cost of maintaining the gardens. If you visit, you'll find plants that we don't offer in any other venue, and often outstanding, sought-after plants that are nearly impossible to get anywhere else. All of our plants are well grown to garden-ready sizes.
People may submit plant lists at any time for availability and pricing. By arrangement, we can have pre-orders pulled and ready for your approval.
