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.
