Welcome to Wavecrest Nursery!
Dear Gardening Friends,
We presently 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.
Our two annual SALE dates,
4th of July and Labor Day weekend are becoming a
PLANT LOVERS - MUST DO
tradition and shouldn't be missed by anyone who loves unusual
plants and bargains.
Wavecrest is located on the western shore of Lake Michigan in the
middle of a fabulous vacation area and can be included in your
family's summer travel plans this year. Plan to visit us soon!
Yours in great gardening,
Carol T. Hop
