From the Owner
Nature is so fascinating, isn't it? The vast array of plants and animals that we share the earth with is a powerful testament to the creative nature of God, and from a young age I have been interested in the world of horticulture. My dad started his own nursery in the late 70's, and I grew up helping my parents and older siblings in the family business. By my late teens my interest in all things horticultural began to grow quite a bit, and my involvement and responsibilities increased as well. When I got saved in 2014, my priorities got all changed up and the Fall of that year, work began on what was to become Ryeland Gardens. A smaller place, with a bit more freedom was the idea. It has been many things, including delightful, overwhelming, fun, stressful, rewarding, physically and mentally draining, spiritually stretching, and maybe not quite as "freeing" as I imagined, but overall it has been a very good time. God is faithful and I'm so thankful for that! So I'd like to invite you to come out and visit us at the nursery and see what we have to offer, and if I may say it again, please take the time to see our display gardens. One of my favorite after work activities is to grab a few plants and my shovel and wander around til the perfect spot is found for them. And yes, it's usually quite late when I finally head out. But it's fun! Gardening is about joy, and taking delight in all that we've been given. And that is something I'm delighted to do!
