We're going out of business...

This fall, for a variety of personal and financial reasons, we'll be hanging up our clippers and shutting our deer gates for the last time.

Our projected schedule is as follows:

  • Our shipping department is CLOSED and the ordering function on our website has been disabled.
  • For the remainder of July and August, we are open Monday-Friday from 9-5. We will spend the summer preparing for a huge liquidation sale.
  • In September, part one of our plant sale will begin: All plants 25% off Monday, 9/2, through Sunday, 9/22. (Spring 2019 bonus card credits may be used instead of, but not in addition to, the 25% discount.)
  • Part two, our everything-must-go sale, will start Monday 9/23 and run through Friday, 10/18. Every plant will be deeply discounted.
  • October 18 will be our last business day.
We are short-staffed, so please be considerate as you shop the sale:
  • We will not reserve, hold or pull plants.
  • We will not offer an itemized written receipt for your purchase. Plants will be tagged with identifying information.
  • Please do not pull any tags from plants -- leave them in the pots.
  • For plant questions, refer to our excellent signage, our print catalog, or our website on your phone.
  • All sales are final. We will not make any replacements or exchanges. We will not issue any credits or refunds.

For interested parties, the nursery is for sale. Details will be given to individuals by prior arrangement only. Contact Blair Durant (blair@nichegardens.com) for further information.

Thank you for your years of loyalty to Niche Gardens. Our hope is that our wonderful plants will continue to beautify your landscapes for years to come.
