Field Trip to Broken Arrow Nursery – Thursday, May 15th

Since its inception, Broken Arrow Nursery has striven to be one of the premier specialty nurseries of woody plants and perennials in the country.  Plant contacts worldwide allow its owners to acquire and propagate the “latest and greatest” for their gardening friends. As a result of their determined collecting efforts, the number of new plant offerings continues to expand. More information about the nursery, the details of our field trip and a registration instructions are included here:

With the recent loss of several mail-order nurseries, the need for Broken Arrow to provide rare and unusual plant sources has increased.  While Broken Arrow has always been dedicated to growing the uncommon and underutilized, they continue to offer older, time-tested plants along with an extensive collection of native plants. Every effort is made to cater to all types of gardeners, from the fanatic collector to those who just want to have a nice yard.  More information about Broken Arrow is available on their website.
