Nursery

The backbone of any landscape can easily be considered the trees, shrubs, and perennials within.

These are the pieces of that ever growing puzzle that we call a garden that we get to appreciate year after year as they grow and form, changing with the seasons, further becoming a permanent part of your landscape.

At Grant Line Nursery and Garden Center, we pride ourselves on carrying one of the largest selections of nursery plants in Southern Indiana and being able to search out and provide our customers with whatever it is we may not have, ensuring each and every one of you walk away satisfied with your visit.

Trees

While most of us generally don’t purchase plants with their health benefits in mind, trees are probably the most important of all plants to make a part of your landscape, simply because they have the greatest chance of giving back to the space that we’ve excavated and claimed as our own, offering a much larger surface area to process and release oxygen into our atmosphere.

 

Photosynthesis aside, Grant Line’s selection of trees are also extremely easy on the eyes, as we carry only the most beautiful specimens. Our aim is to carry all shapes and sizes that are able to grow in our zone. So, whether you’re looking for a dwarf weeping cherry for a garden that runs along the edge of your home, some medium height arborvitae to act as an evergreen wind or privacy screen, a cleveland pear for it’s spring blooms and summer shade capabilities, or a giant, towering oak to take over the center of your yard, we’ve got you covered, literally.

Shrubs

Evergreen and flowering shrubs are an essential part of any landscape. Whether it is in a foundation planting or a garden border there is a wide range of plant material that can add depth and dimension to your garden. There are two types of shrubs: deciduous and evergreen.

 

Deciduous shrubs such as Lilac, Forsythia and certain types of Azaleas will flower, foliate and then lose their foliage in the fall season. the benefit of a deciduous shrub is that the majority of them, and there are a LOT, are bred and selected to give you the brightest, fullest appearance for as long as possible.

 

Evergreen shrubs like Rhododendron, most Azaleas and Andromeda will feature evergreen foliage all year round, flower and then flush with new growth by summer. The benefit of flowering evergreens is that you benefit from the best of both worlds – beautiful flowers in spring and evergreen foliage all year round for privacy and structure to support the overall landscape plan.

Perennials

While annuals are incredibly beautiful, sometimes you just want to plant a garden full of color and then leave it alone, right? Well say hello to perennials! Unlike annuals and biennials, perennials are defined as plants that return year after year and last at least 3 years, giving you beautiful results time and time again without all of the fuss of replanting annually.

 

This, however, is all dependent on your growing zone. Since some plants that are perennials in some areas can be annuals in others, we make sure that you’ll be able to tell the difference so that you can be sure that you’re taking home the right plant for your needs!

 

The selection of perennials available is nearly endless, ranging from low growing ground covers all the way to 4 foot tall spires and they come in every color of the spectrum. While most do not provide full season color on their own, we can offer advice so that you can plant your perennials to ensure that when one plant stops blooming, the other has just started, filling your garden with color all season long!

Roses

Probably the most popular flower by name, the Rose is a perennial favorite in terms of both look and fragrance. Most varieties of roses, such as grandiflora, floribunda, and hybrid teas, require a little more work than other flowers, but if you have the time and patience, the payoff is wonderful.

 

If you are looking for something a little less demanding of your time, we carry plenty of the easy-to-grow, disease resistant, constantly blooming, self-cleaning Knock-Out roses in yellow, red and pink.

 

We’re proud to be able to offer Roses of all types, sizes and colors and in all of the top names, such as the above mentioned Knock-Out, plus David Austen, Weeks, and Star brands.

Groundcovers

cinquefoil

There are plenty of different situations you may find yourself in where the only answer is ground covers. Their main benefits are that they keep weeds at bay, help decrease the chances of soil erosion, and also provide a dense soil cover. Additionally, most of them are perennial, so you get the advantage of watching them come back year after year!

 

Chances are that you’re probably looking for groundcover because you have a space where grass just wont grow very well but you don’t want the trouble of landscaping the whole thing. Groundcover can do this. You may also be looking for a showy but low break to define the edge of a garden from your lawn or walkway. Ground cover can also do this. Some groundcovers will even go as far as travelling past the ground and start to climb things!

 

They’re very versatile plants that can be used effectively in a myriad of situations, so if you feel like you’re in one of these, take a look at the groundcovers we have to offer and see if any of them are the right fit for you!

Vines

In the opposite fashion from groundcovers, vines are your go to flora when you want to cover vertical space. While some groundcovers are considered vines since they spread, when we’re talking vines, we’re talking what the British refer to as ‘climbers’.

 

Vines such as ivy, whether Boston or English, are generally prized for their foliage and ability to apply a thick cover to a surface for visual interest, but the majority of our vines come with the added bonus of pushing out flowers. You’ll see evidence of this on our wisteria, honeysuckle, clematis, and crossvine. If flowers weren’t enough, we carry pyracantha, a vine that develops orange-red berries in the fall which will be sure to attract birds to whatever surface you decide to grow it on.

 

Suffice it to say, if you’ve got a surface to climb, we’ve got you covered.

Fruits

One of the most rewarding parts of putting a plant in the ground is when it begins to produce an extension of itself that can end up on your dinner table. In this case, we’re talking fruits and nuts specifically. If you take a stroll up to the upper part of our nursery and into the back of our tree bed, you’re bound to find a wide variety of plants that do just that.

 

In our nursery you’ll find our smaller shrub types like blueberry, blackberry, strawberry, and grapes, and sometimes a gooseberry or currant or two! Back in the tree bed is where we keep the taller tree varieties like the more common apple, plum, peach, pear, cherry and service berry, and some less common persimmon and pawpaws. We’ve even got a few black walnuts and pecans if you’re looking for a little homegrown protein in your diet!
