Garden Thyme Nursery
Garden Thyme Nursery owner Patti Harris grows exclusively in unheated greenhouses, rendering her plants hearty enough to endure chilly spring mornings or the ice-cold glare of hungry vegetarians. Additionally, Harris selects only drought-tolerant and deer-resistant buds to join her nursery’s ranks, prizing perennials with extended bloom times.
Harris’s gardeners happily collaborate with customers to choose plants ideal for all types of gardens. But if green thumbs need further inspiration, Patti recommends a 1-mile jaunt to Oregon Garden, an 80-acre garden that grows many of the plants available at Garden Thyme Nursery.
