There is something to please everyone. We grow over 200 varieties of perennials and shrubs along with 50 different types of annuals. You may purchase wedding flowers two ways. We offer traditional floral design services, including bouquets, centerpieces, arbors, rentals and tablescaping.
Or you may purchase just the flowers and have someone arrange them for you. Some brides have us arrange the wedding party flowers and they arrange the reception flowers. Fresh flowers are offered by the mixed bucketful or individual types of flowers may purchased by the bunch. Herbs and succulents are also available.

Birdwatching at Shady Grove on the NC Birding Trail
Our 76 acre farm its located on the slopes of 'The Peak', in the Amphibolite Mountains of Ashe County. Open meadows, early succession forest, numerous streams & mountain bogs provide excellent habitat many types of birds as well as great long range views.
Birding watching is open to everyone. Admission for self-guided walks is $5, and for guided walks $20. Trails are moderate. Most anyone will enjoy the combination open meadow, farm roads and rich cove forest. With luck, everyone will be able to see the Golden Winged Warbler, a Species of Special Concern. Birders can stay as long as they want, however birding and photography is best very early in the morning. We offer birding Sunday-Thursday. Call for information and directions.
