Spotlight on Sponsors: Faddegon's Nursery

By Gail Browning

It was a delight to walk through rows of art­ful­ly arranged pots of mums, well-groomed grass­es and peren­ni­als, new native plants (e.g., Cepha­lan­thus), and mul­ti­ple shrubs (three vari­eties of but­ton­bush!). Randy point­ed out the detailed sig­nage as one of the keys to pro­vid­ing infor­ma­tion to cus­tomers. There is nev­er any pres­sure to buy at Faddegon’s. You are free to wan­der about leisure­ly envi­sion­ing new gar­den lay­outs at your home. Whether the goal is using small cul­ti­vars for small spaces, or get­ting chil­dren involved in gar­den­ing, you’ll always find expert advice here.

Open year-round, Faddegon’s plant stock reflects the sea­sons. The fruit trees arrive in late Feb­ru­ary, annu­als and peren­ni­als lat­er, about mid-May, depend­ing on the weath­er. Fall, an impor­tant plant­i­ng sea­son, fea­tures bulbs such as amaryl­lis, daf­fodils, and tulips to plant for spring blooms — and don’t for­get the gar­lic! Also avail­able are orna­men­tal cab­bage and kale, straw, and corn stalks to give your home a touch of sea­son­al flair. 

The win­ter sea­son fea­tures an exten­sive selec­tion of house­plants in the green­house along with unique items and orna­ments in the gift shop. And, of course, over 1000 trees, plus wreaths and greens for swags, are on hand for the holidays. 

Faddegon’s phi­los­o­phy is to sus­tain and pre­serve nature. (Randy rec­om­mends read­ing The Nature of Oaks” and Nature’s Best Hope” by Doug Tal­lamy.) In light of that phi­los­o­phy, it’s easy to under­stand the link between the Arbore­tum and this Lan­dis sup­port­er, a won­der­ful fam­i­ly business.
