​At Garden Gate our mission is to make available plants native to Virginia that are suitable for conservation landscaping and restoration projects.  We are a grower supplying retail and wholesale customers.  

With our new space, we will be propagating more local ecotype native species with a new focus on local shrubs and trees as well as adding to our list of native wildflower species.  

A native meadow, several pollinator gardens and planting many edible native species are already in the works.  It will be exciting to see these evolve and to see the different pollinators and wildlife that they will bring to the property.

​​Conservation and Sustainable Landscaping
provides a diverse habitat using native plants 
that will support wildlife, protects our water 
resources, protects air quality, reduces 
maintenance time and cost.

New Location!
We are very excited about our move to Caroline County.
We will have space to grow as much as I want!!!
 The nursery will be open as usual in early March​
and will continue as normal with all local sales and Farmer's Markets.
