Many gardeners wait impatiently to find out what plants or plant groups will be featured in Landis' sales. Of course, there will be hundreds of perennials, shrubs, grasses, and trees for a range of conditions, including many unusual varieties. Gardeners return year after year for strong, vibrant plants. This year we'll have a nice selection of organic vegetable seedlings and herbs as well as some lovely hanging baskets.
There are always some special features at our sales:
