Plant Delights Nursery & Juniper Level Botanic Garden Open Nursery and Garden Days

COVID-19: PDN and JLBG are committed to doing our part to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and protect the health and safety of our staff, customers and the community. We have and will continue to make modifications to our workplace practices and interactions with the public. Social distancing guidelines are enforced.

While nurseries and garden centers have been permitted to remain open in North Carolina, we have decided to delay our Spring Open Nursery and Garden Days for 2 weeks. This will allow us extra time to properly prepare for social distancing in the nursery. 

2020 Spring Open Garden Days:

May 14-15 & 21-22, 2020 - Thursdays and Fridays, 8:00am - 5:00pm. Walk the gardens and pick-up pre-ordered plants from the Nursery. All greenhouses are closed to the public on these days.

2020 Spring Open Nursery & Garden Days:

May 16-17 & 23-24, 2020 - Saturdays, 8:00am - 5:00pm, and Sundays, 1:00pm - 5:00pm. Walk the gardens and shop in Plant Delights Nursery sales greenhouses.

Please understand that this will result in changes to our typical Open Nursery & Garden protocols:

  • We have added a second checkout area to allow for social spacing during checkout.
  • We are installing safety partitions between cashiers and customers.
  • We are limiting open greenhouse schedule for on-site shopping: Thursdays and Fridays, no on-site shopping (place orders 24-48 business hours in advance for pick-up Thursday or Friday): Saturdays and Sundays the number of people in each greenhouse will be limited to maintain social spacing.
  • Gardening Unplugged talks have been suspended for spring.

We asked for your patience and understanding, since we all realize these changes are neither convenient nor ideal for you, our valued customers. They are, however, needed for the safety of everyone.

Keep in touch with us on Facebook, Twitter and through emails for additional scheduling updates. Our homepage will also have the latest information.

We are open to the public during the dates specified below. Appointments for visits at other dates and times must be scheduled in advance by completing this form: Visit Request Form to request an off-schedule visit.
