Laura Miezejeski has an exceptionally green thumb, and for close to 13 years, she has been growing a wide assortment of North American native perennials including many long-blooming, drought-tolerant and deer resistant varieties. Laura’s perennials are container grown on land that has been dedicated to farming for generations. In the early 1900’s it was used to grow potatoes and raise cows. The land tells a multi-generational story of Connecticut agriculture, and the soil—rich from years of careful farming—is fertile ground for a thriving nursery business. Laura personally selects the varieties of the plants that Hortus Perennials grows and is proud to offer so much more than your standard nursery stock. With years of gardening experience, Laura will help you find exactly what you are looking for and tell you precisely how to make it flourish in your garden. Hortus Perennials is nestled in Deep River, a quiet Connecticut River Valley town located between historic Essex and Chester. Laura and her family welcome you to come and visit soon!
