“ Thank you for designing a beautiful garden. You captured my imagination and desire for a "Growing in Place" garden concept. It flows so beautifully and the combination of different plants will be fun to take care of. The Turtleheads are blooming and the Butterfly mint is attracting hummingbirds. ”

“ Wasco Nursery is the best place to fill all your gardening needs. I’ve had so many compliments on perennials, most of which I’ve not seen in other garden centers. I recommend walking the grounds to see the huge variety they carry and talk to their knowledgeable staff. So friendly and accommodating! ”
