Sandy Mush Herb Nursery

For over 30 years The Sandy Mush Herb Nursery has been collecting, propagating, and selling herbs, perennials, and other interesting plants as well as books, seeds and handy items. Our Handbook/Catalog contains close to 1600 varieties of plants including:

  • Traditional Culinary and Medicinal Herbs
  • Scented Geraniums (94 varieties)
  • Wild Flowers and other native plants
  •  Perennials
  • Trees and Shrubs
  • Bonsai Plants
  • And Much, Much More.

Greenhouses and gardens offer visitors the chance to see mature plants and trees and enjoy a hands on view to aid in selecting plants for their landscapes. We grow close to 1600 different plants and the farm is a living botanic library. Potted and ready to plant herbs, perennials, wildflowers, trees and shrubs are for sale at the Nursery.

The mountain cove is full of wonders and opportunities to look at nature close-up. Children love to watch tadpoles in the spring and wade in the creek. The farm stop offers the opportunity to explore the hikes, wildflowers, rushing creeks and dramatic waterfalls on the property.

There is a pull-off about one-half mile up where one can park & then enjoy a pleasant short hike through the woodland, above the rushing creek & waterfalls. Wildflowers enhance this walk.
