Small Nurseries Road Trip

16 years ago

Last weekend we took a road trip to Donahue's in Faribault to pick up some clematis. We got some beautiful clematis and plan on returning in May plus in June when they have their "closing for the season half off" sales.

We decided to travel down to Owatonna and visit a nursery that someone from here recommended last fall. We went to Turtle Creek Nursery and it's now a new favorite. They have some beautiful pots at great prices and the plants that they had now were very nice with nice prices too. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely go back in May when more plants are in. their website is

On the way back we stopped at Rosie's Gardening Angel Greenhouse outside of Northfield. We discovered her last fall and enjoyed our visit with her so much that we stopped again. She wasn't officially open last weekend but welcomed us anyway. She is open now and has fun stuff for everyone. Her website is

We go on roadtrips all over Minnesota and Wisconsin and always make time to the local nurseries. Have found many "souveniers" to use in our gardens.

Please share some of the gems you have found...
