The site has had a nursery on it since the 1940’s. Its longevity has made it one of the most interesting nurseries in the area. Customers are allowed to browse anywhere on the grounds and all eleven greenhouses are open to the public. To maintain consistent quality and offer customers the lowest possible prices, Bird’s grows many of their own plants on site. This, coupled with the friendly and knowledgeable staff, make Bird’s a preferred destination for all gardening enthusiasts. The nursery also offers a Landscape Design Installation Service as well as a Premium Planting Service.
