About Us

Who We Are

We're a women owned and operated plant nursery in Winterville, GA! Located on the former Thyme after Thyme property which was a plant nursery for over 25 years, we have so much to see and experience. We're pesticide and herbicide free, employing all natural growing methods. We also love art! We make our own art but also love supporting local artists. 

Why Natives Matter

The native plants of Georgia have evolved over hundreds of thousands of years as the foundation of our shared ecosystem. Unfortunately, habitat loss and introduced plant species have disturbed the balance in our environment. Adding native plants to your yard will help restore that balance and provides a number of immediate and long term benefits!

Our Mission

Our mission is to inspire and enrich each customer's well-being through the process of designing individual living spaces. We believe in environmental stewardship and we hope to renew and spark interest in horticulture and plants. We believe in relationships with our customers and offer an assortment of the highest quality plants that are competitively priced. 

We prioritize native plants in order to re-wild our spaces and provide a safe haven for birds, pollinators, and the ecosystem as a whole.
