All visitors to Colesville Nursery scrutinize a list of plants and a map upon their arrival, as if gearing up for a scavenger hunt. The preparation makes sense, considering that guests are unleashed onto the sprawling grounds, where they walk or drive through more than 50 packed acres of plants. The vast plant selection includes azaleas, roses, ornamental grasses, and even topiaries, whereas the garden shop supplies green thumbs with gardening tools and organic fertilizers.
Once customers hone in on their ideal plants, staff members carefully help load the leafy bounty into cars without damaging blossoms or rousting sleepy garden gnomes. If the flora is too big to fit in your vehicle, the nursery happily delivers to locales within a 100-mile radius.
