Unless late developments dictate otherwise, our 2021 Open Garden events will take place as scheduled below. To verify any changes, you may visit this page before visiting.
Mowed garden paths will be open. We will have some awesome plants for sale!
Until we get back to actual normal, out of respect for the greater community we will implement the following Covid safeguards:
1) Facemasks must be worn.
2) 6' social distancing must be practiced.
3) Parking safeguards need to be respected. Please park on the road shoulder well away from the Bond Rd. intersection and leave a clear wide access for through traffic.
We appreciate your patronage and wish you well during this period of unprecedented challenges. Our hearts go out to all those affected in greater or lesser measure by the Coronavirus situation. Gardening offers a "safe space" and we hope to support everyone's well being.
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 do not seek donations. 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.
