We are proud to welcome you to The Green Grove Garden. We have been active farmers and plant propagators for a number of years, and we specialized in the production of plant plugs, or basically miniature seedlings, for our on farm use. As such, we learned a great deal about seedling production and also the proper storage, handling and identification of quality seeds through intensive hands on experience. Consequently, we're excited to be able to offer you the finest and freshest seeds available. Here is another of our favorite offerings:
