THE PLANTS WE GROW
Mike Johnson wrote the first edition of "The Plants We Grow" in 1977 in response to our customers (garden centers and landscapers) asking for information about the rare and unusual plants we grow. The third edition was published in 1995. Since then we've added over 200 varieties that will be included in the revised edition currently in production.

To order a copy of "The Plants We Grow," please contact Summer Hill Nursery, 203-421-3055, Summerhillnur@aol.com
