Venero Gardens Visit

beverlymnz4April 29, 2012

I went to pick up my order plus yesterday.


Dancing Queen

Hudson Bay

Saint Paul with some frost damage

A view of their display gardens:

It was cold and rainy but I just couldn't wait. Dory was very helpful. They had a for sale sign on the property - interesting. I planted today. Now, waiting for them to grow up.

BTW I have been reading all the threads and thank the posters and their pictures. I don't always respond, but its all very fun for me to read.

OH NO!!! They cannot sell that gorgeous home and business!
Venero's is my only local source now! (well, except for Savory's, but I'm not a fan).

Always a fun visit, I'm hoping to make a trip there in a couple weeks. I hope they're not planning to get out of the business but I could certainly understand that they might want to be downsizing.

Wow! Your Lionheart should be added to the Hosta Library, it looks a lot better than the ONLY picture there!

Melissa, I was disapointed to see the for sale sign - I thought this was going to be my yearly go-to place for hosta. So, I asked Dory about it and she said they were just "starting the process". I wish someone would buy and continue the business, but that seems unlikely to me. We better all visit this year, while we can.

I ordered from Venero's for the first time this year and can't wait to see the plants. Sorry to hear they are looking at selling! Thanks for sharing the pics.
