SPRING 2020 MESSAGE TO OUR CUSTOMERS
WELCOME TO FINGER LAKES NURSERY!
We are extremely excited to announce the opening of our nursery, located just south of Ithaca at 1432 Danby Road, Ithaca, NY 14850. The nursery is owned and operated by Spencer Heaps, in collaboration with landowner Lance Ebel. We specialize in growing locally-adapted plants including berry bushes, fruit and nut trees, medicinal and culinary herbs, and many more.
Our plant choices are strongly influenced by the ideas of permaculture and regenerative agriculture. This means we value perennial, multi-use plants that provide yields of food and medicine, build soil, and improve the diversity and resiliency of ecosystems.
While the COVID-19 pandemic presents challenges, it is a great time to focus on gardening.Feel free to come to our nursery at these times to browse our plants in person, with the option to purchase specific plants and take them home the same day, while observing social distancing.
In addition we are happy to offer the option of online shopping to our local customers. Orders may be placed online or over the phone for contact-less pickup at the nursery, or for home delivery (within 25 miles of our site). For more information or help with ordering, please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (607) 288-3705.
Our availability is ever-changing, and not all of the following plants will be available at throughout our season. The most up-to-date information may be found in our online store or by contacting us directly. Below is a listing of many of the plants we anticipate offering for sale:
