Salutions to a new decade, Digging Dog's 2020 Offerings, Fresh Start Sale!

in their ability to lend an air of maturity to the garden. They can be trained on a fence, trellis, pergola or obelisk, framing a distant vista or anchoring an intimate view. Be sure to check out our online selection of clematis and other climbers.

The 28th edition of our Digging Dog Nursery Catalog ...

We hope you’ll discover offerings that sprout inspiration, brighten your mood and cajole you into your leafy sanctuary. Following is a sampling of some of our favorites.

An upcoming gardening season evokes excitement and anticipation, accompanied by the prospect of possibility. Questions arise: How do I feel strolling through my botanical retreat?
