As you enter the turn-of-the-century dairy barn that houses the garden shop, you’ll know that you have discovered a rare treasure. Beautiful and unusual garden accents, gifts for the home and garden, books, fountains, birdbaths, glass ornaments, statuary, and planters, are so charmingly displayed, that a trip to Northwind is truly an inspiration and will give you plenty of ideas about how to use garden art to brighten your landscape and create outdoor spaces that you will love to come home to.

Tour our demonstration gardens to experience the plants as nature intended; growing and maturing in diverse, compatible plant communities. We want visitors to take home healthy plants and have an increased understanding of how to grow perennials successfully. We will go out of our way to answer questions and provide advice.


Our retail benches are bursting with over 200 different species of perennials, shrubs, native plants, ornamental grasses and shrub roses.

We carefully choose plants that have garden value:

  • They are hardy in zone 5
  • Provide eye-catching seasonal interest
  • Disease resistant
  • Low maintenance requirements
