Since 1930, Toms Creek Nursery and Landscaping has greenafied lawns with vibrant shrubs, trees, and flowering plants grown by Toms' experienced cultivators. Prepare outdoor areas for a spring awakening with Double Knockout roses ($25/2 gallons) or a lush monkey-grass plant ($5/gallon), a flowering perennial that fills out gardens and looks adorable in a small fez. For vertical beautification, a Carolina Beauty crape myrtle ($15/3 gallons, $25/5 gallons) enlivens yards or oversized cocktails with its characteristic purple flowers. The direct-sales nursery also carries 50 acres of container plants and 200 acres of B&B trees and shrubs.
SPADE & BROOM offers a wide range of gifts and accessories for your garden and home. We are always adding unique vintage items, handmade one of a kind items crafted out of salvaged materials, shabby chic furniture, and interesting displays of flowering plants.
One of the best times of day at Horizon Cellars is dusk. That's when guests out on the covered deck can relax with a glass of wine and watch the setting sun turn the clouds over the Mount Vernon Springs ridge line a soft pink. On weekends, guests can bring a picnic basket and blanket to the winery and sip everything from sweet plum wines to mellow white wines while playing fetch or Monopoly with the dog.
Inside the tasting room, which is located atop a rolling ridge, guests sample Horizon's wines and meads. Its meads are similar to its wines, but are made with honey from Horizon's bee farm instead of grapes. The winery's tasting menus change depending on season and availability, so Horizon recommends that visitors call ahead for a listing of that day's wines.
