“Naturally Grown in Wisconsin”
2013 is our 10th year/ a rust-free source

We specialize in healthy plants of our own introductions, award winners, historics, unusual forms, doubles, & classic favorites. All are field grown, freshly dug, washed, labeled, wrapped, and shipped promptly or when you want them. Blooming size double fan divisions, single fans, & clumps are available.

Since purchasing our farm in 1977, we’ve used only natural sustainable methods, without the use of any synthetic fertilizers, fungicides, herbicides or pesticides.

We are committed to conserving all natural resources & recycle whenever possible.

Our plants may not all be quite as large as those fed a heavy fertilized diet, or those grown further south, but are nice. Some plants naturally make smaller fans. All are not big. It all depends on the individual plants makeup. This year again we are doing more downsizing; so many cultivars are on sale & may not be available again. We’re happy to continue to say that Rust has never been found here ever on our annual inspection.

Ordering: No minimum, 5½% tax applies to all WI. sales. PayPal is available with a $2. service charge. This payment method gets your plants shipped to you as soon as the following week, if you like.
Or you can order by mail with a personal check or money order included with your order. Those orders will be shipped only after the check clears the bank, usually within 2 weeks.
Call or e-mail first as to availability, as some are in limited supply. Gift certificates are available in any amount. We no longer dig during visits for garden sales, but we can have your order ready to pick-up when you’d like it.

Shipping & Handling: We begin in late April if we have an early spring. Generally early/mid May through mid June & again from early August through September. Later, if you live in the South USPS Priority Mail, $9.00. For the 1st plant. plus $1. single fans, $2.double fans, $2.50 clumps. We ship on Mondays/Tuesdays and fill orders as we get them. We try to ship on your preferred shipping date but due to the weather, it may be delayed. Mother Nature can be cruel some years, so please bear with us when this occurs. Continental US only, sorry no sales to Ca. Or. Wa. Nv. Az. or where phytosanitary permits are needed.

Substitutions & Bonuses: Substitutions are made only with your permission, of equal or greater value. Please send a long list of suggestions in order of preference. We will use this list also for your bonuses, or please let us know if a refund if preferred.

Guarantee: True to name & healthy. If not satisfied, return within 3 days with labels still attached for replacement or refund. Your satisfaction is most important to us. We send only plants that we’d like to receive. Most importantly to insure survival; Mulch is highly recommended the 1st winter on all plants, especially in the North. Nursery visits: We’re open by appointment only, as we are also a working Community Supported Agriculture vegetable farm, so please call, e-mail to set a time. We’re happy to see you but, Mondays & Thursdays are our very busy harvest & pickup days, so please plan your visit for another time. See us under ‘Plum Hill Farm CSA’ at www.localharvest.org

Children must be with their parents at all times & small children must be held while in the gardens. No unleashed pets please. Peak bloom is early July, but we begin the Early season in early June & continue into September with the Lates.
