Quailcrest Farm

Quailcrest Farm is located in Wooster, Ohio.  It's a nursery that was begun in 1975, but the neat thing about it, is that there are more than two dozen display gardens that visitors can enjoy.  One of my favorites is a Teahouse garden that surrounds an old school house.  The garden has lilacs, magnolia trees, and lavender.  If you'd like, you can go in the school house to view the collection of antiques. 

There's also an herb garden with mints and scented geraniums.

When you are finished enjoying the gardens, you can visit the greenhouse to buy the plants you have seen.  Probably the most popular plants are the roses and scented geraniums.  If you're looking for gifts, there's a Garden Barn where you can find all kinds of fun things for the garden.

Quailcrest Farm is open Tuesday - Saturday from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM.  Admission to see the gardens is free.

  6. Tea house garden is just lovely. Such an inspiring place to discover one's green thumb. Would probably leave with a pot or two after a visit to the greenhouse.

  9. Beautiful! Husband is our gardener. My thumb is so black I have to apologize to the plants for being in their space when I go outside :)

    Nice to meet you!
