It’s been nearly four decades since Hillcrest Gardens opened. After all these years, working with plants and people is still hugely fulfilling. As time moves on, the spirit is still willing, but the body becomes less compliant. It’s a good time to retire. Hillcrest Gardens will close permanently at the end of September.

Thank you to all our friends and customers for the tremendous love and support you have given to all of us at the nursery. I am truly blessed to have spent my life doing the work I love in the town I love. This is an amazing community filled with the very best people.

Rob and I will set out on new adventures later this year. We will very much miss our work and our friends. Wherever we go in the world, every one of you will be in our hearts.

All the best, always,


Fall is the best time to plant. We still have lots of inventory. We’re open until September 28. We hope to see you!
