LAMTREE FARM

Established in 1979, we strive to offer the highest of quality available to the public. We handle Propagation from start to finish! Our solar Greenhouse starts our plants out from seed we collect from our premium plants on our farm, and, throughout our beautiful Counties of Ashe, Watauga, Avery, and Blowing Rock, NC. Our plants are eventually graduated into beds from containers, and are field-grown and sold as B&B plant material. We are open by appointment only due to the fact that we could be out landscaping, or, we could be on one of the 140 acres here on the farm... and... you might not find us! We do have a great website though. We look forward to having you visit, so give us a call.
