Fraser's Thimble Farm

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.
