We are a small family-owned nursery located in Cornwallville, NY where we grow vegetable starts, perennials, and shrubs including small fruits. We believe strongly in good land stewardship so we grow organically though we are not certified, and we refuse to sell plants that are known to be invasive. We also carry specimen trees and shrubs from other handpicked growers. Our plants are available at our greenhouse and at a few offsite venues which can be found on the Special Events page during the growing season.
We are not only growers, we are also avid gardeners and collectors. Visitors to Greene Bee are always welcome to explore our grounds which are populated by numerous specimen trees, shrubs, ornamental gardens, and an extensive vegetable garden.
At Greene Bee Greenhouse, our philosophy is to grow responsibly, which to us means respecting nature. We strive to cultivate a healthy ecology from the soil up by using copious amounts of compost and only organic (non-synthetic, non-petroleum based) fertilizers. This method promotes a biologically diverse soil system that supports sustained and healthy plant growth. We grow and sell plants that to the best of our knowledge coexist peacefully with the indigenous species of our region, while simultaneously striving to offer broad and unique variety. We reuse as many plastic pots as we can, and heat our greenhouse primarily with wood to cut down on petroleum consumption.
