Hasting Plants


Nancy Hasting bills her greenhouse, tucked away in the Posey County river bottoms, as “well worth the drive.” Considering the eye-popping plants such as the Dutchman’s pipe and Echinacea hot papaya (new arrivals last year), we agree. Mid-March through mid-June 1500 Hasting Lane, Mount Vernon, Ind., 812-838-2164 or www.hastingplants.com
Judy Schneider Kron
A small operation that’s part of a family farm, this greenhouse boasts many plants nurtured from seed. “They’re my babies,” says Schneider Kron, who plans to sell new varieties such as Echinacea marmalade and blackberry punch Calibrachoa this spring. April 6 through the end of June (also open in September and October) 2325 Nuebling Road, Evansville, 812-867-2952 or 812-550-2895
Robin’s Nest


This Warrick County greenhouse is packed with colorful blooms such as wave petunias and dragon wing begonias, plus dozens of herb, tomato, and pepper plant varieties — even a banana plant. Open year-round 714 E. Main St., Boonville, Ind., 812-897-4591 or www.robinsnestflowers.com
