The 60-acre farm, owned by the same family since 1770, has 16 greenhouses filled with hundreds of varieties of propagated plants from around the world–everything you need for display, formal, perennial, and border gardens, along with a large selection of rare trees and conifers. The Walkers also sell certified organic fruits and vegetables.
