I really enjoyed visiting Fraser's Thimble Farm - it's definite 'eye candy' for a gardener! The owner was friendly, knowledge - and helpful....I ended up spending about $500 more than the groupon value .....so we were both happy! Am now taking some friends over this week to check it out for fall plantings. The real positive for me is that I would've never known about - or thought of visiting this nursery if it hadn't been on Groupon.

I was disappointed that the coupon was not good for anything on "special", as most of what was there .... at least that I was interested in... was on special. Really limited my selection. However am pleased with what I did buy. I am a "regular" at the nursery so good to have the Groupon option.

Fraser's Thimble Farm is one of the most unique and well-organized and wonderfully eclectic collection of plants that I have seen. They label their plants well so that you know what you are viewing and the selection is fabulous. The setting, within the forest of beautiful trees is just gorgeous. I live in Victoria so can't visit

I went there to redeem my coupon - but didn't have the correct thing printed off. I had to return there with the proper documentation - my fault entirely - but frustrating. Excellent nursery with some outstanding plants. I would purchase another Groupon coupon if offered.

Friendly, helpful. An amazing array of plants of all kinds. Very well kept plants and grounds. There were so many interesting plants I had a hard time deciding.

From Our Editors

Richard Fraser spent more than 20 years hoarding every variety of bulb, plant, shrub, and tree he could find until his obsession finally came to a head. His wife, Nancy, delivered this ultimatum: he had to either bid farewell to her or the plants. Thankfully, the couple found a perfect compromise. Now, Richard sells and trades his plants and trees as part of a business that keeps him collecting and keeps Nancy from packing her bags.

The Frasers publish a list of Fraser's Thimble Farm's current collection online every April and November, as well as a main collectors’ list each July. Richard's love of both common and rare plants has inspired him to expand the farm's stock to more than 400 bulb varieties, including orchids, lilies, and compact fluorescents. Additionally, he assembles a selection of local, Asian, and European perennials, ferns, and evergreen and deciduous trees.
