Enchanter's Garden

Enchanter's Garden specializes in native plants of the mid-Atlantic region. Our nursery is located 5 miles south of Hinton, WV in the Greenbrier River valley. We are open to the public by appointment only, but we love visitors! We also do business by mail order and are available for environmental landscaping consultations. We propagate all of our plants from seed or by cuttings. 85% of our stock plants originated from local ecotypes within a 30 mile radius of our nursery.
