to Wavecrest Nursery!
Dear Gardening Friends,
grow over 1700 different varieties of hardy woody
ornamentals. Many are available only in our Garden
Center, as they are too large to logically fit
into a shipping box and send.
We welcome your inquiries regarding varieties not
included in our mail order listing, as well as
your personal visits to our Garden Center and The
Barn Owl Gift Shop.
Our garden center and gift shop are stocked full
of many fine plants, unusual garden gifts and a
large selection of fountains and statuary. We are
open daily April 1 thru November 1, including
Sundays and Holidays from 9 to 5 p.m.
dates, 4th of July and
Labor Day weekend are becoming a PLANT LOVERS - MUST DO

and can be included in your family's summer travel
plans this year. Plan to visit us soon!
Yours in great gardening,

color. Grows to 10'x10'.

fruits nicely. A pyramidal holly that can
