A trip to Glover Perennials

Continuing on with our tour of the North Fork plant growers, Andrea and I had a very pleasant visit at Glover Perennials in Cutchogue, New York. Glover Perennials is a family owned and operated wholesale nursery, nestled on a very pretty 23 acres. We were met by Jim Glover, who has been on my television show four times. Jim explained that they are a leading supplier of groundcovers, perennials, and vines to landscapers and garden centers in the greater New York area. Andrea and I were impressed by the great variety of plant material and by the good condition of the inventory. We discussed the possibility of having Jim back on the show talking about fall blooming perennials, of which he grows 60 different varieties. Enjoy!
