We select varieties of plants which are hardy in our
plant hardiness zone. Fairfield, Pennsylvania, and the surrounding
areas are in USDA hardiness Zone 6. Most of our plants that we grow
spend, at least, one entire growing season here, and have become
acclimated to the extremes of temperature in this zone.
By growing plants ourselves we can sell them at
considerably better prices because we "cut out the middleman." You
are buying directly from the folks who grow the plants, not from a
re-seller of someone else's plant material.
this, we do choose to obtain some finished nursery stock from
reputable growers. We do this in order to provide a selection of
more specialized plant material for which we are unable to find
cuttings, or plants which would take us a long time to produce.
These plants will correspondingly cost a little more than those we
have grown from "babies."
It is our intent to offer a quality plant at a
reasonable price. Our motto since 1980 has been "Nice Plants,
Sensible Prices" and we try to live up to it.

someone who can help.
Our major objective is to make your visit to Middle
Creek Nursery a pleasant, satisfying experience.
