ABOUT OUR PLANTS: We are growing and shipping as many plants as possible in 3 ½”wide by 3 ½” deep  pots.  Our plants are grown without any artificial heat either in open ended hoop houses or in the open on ground cloth. This allows us to produce hardy plants that are much more closely in character than alpine plants grown in heated greenhouses. We welcome your comments and suggestions.
