Cymron Cottage

Cymron Cottage is a small nursery that I discovered by doing a seacrh on Daves web site for nurseries within 20 miles of my zipcode.

We called, made an appointment to visit and discovered a small nursery with marvelous plants, many difficult to find any where else.

Jerry Carnes, the owner, is very knowledgeable and helpful. He runs a landscaping business and his retail sales are a sideline so if you want to visit you must make an appt.

This year we bought: Cedrus d. "White Imp" (5), Lagerstroemia x "Chickasaw" (3), Sisynchrium bermudianum (2), Gardenia j. "Kleim's Hardy" (1), Daphne transatlantica "Summer Ice (2), and a 5 ft Syringa laciniata.

We have also reserved Crataegus monogyna "Inermis Compacta", and Ulmus x elegantissima "Jacqueline Hillier." Jerry will have them dug for us later this year.

The latter two are very rare and to find large examples of them in beautiful condition is amazing.

His web site is: and address

417 Monroeville Road
Monroeville, NJ 08343

RE: Cymron Cottage

Thank you. That is a new one for me. Summer Ice is a nice find. Prices seem reasonable. I don't like that I have to make an appointment though. It makes me feel pressured to buy.

RE: Cymron Cottage

Loreta, I don't think you would feel pressured if you visited the nursery. Jerry is low key guy.
He is not there in regular hours - we've been there after 4:00.
E-mail is a good way to contact him.

RE: Cymron Cottage

That location is relatively close to home and closer to work so I will probably visit soon.

I see you bought gardenia, "Kleims Hardy". That plant does not bloom or survive outdoors in New Jersey. I use lonicera serotina as a substitute for fragrance at this time of the year


RE: Cymron Cottage

Thanks for the info on Lonicera serotina. We did know were "zone pushing" and put it in a protected location. Its supposed to be hardy in zones 7 - 10. That not too big a push as (in my opinion) S Jersey is becoming zone 7
