Parker’s greenhouse grows garden plants for the people who live on the east side of New Mexico’s Sandia Mountains, which includes the foothills and the high desert plains. We specialize in a diverse variety of acclimatized plants for those who garden 6,000 to 8,000 feet above sea level. We grow 90% of our perennials and annuals from seed, mix our own soils and bareroot all of our trees and shrubs. We sell plants only. We do not sell pots, garden furniture, top soil, potting soils, mulch, herbicides, pesticides, etc.
The Parker’s also provide guidance and inspiration to anyone wanting to learn about gardening. We keep your personal needs and resources in mind while helping you choose the right plant for the right place. High altitude gardening has its unique challenges and we have the experience to help you meet them.
Inspiration comes in the form of Monika’s garden. The gardens are designed as a series of garden spaces, each with it’s own theme. There is the Victorian garden for those who treasure flowers, trees and shrubs set in formality. The Japanese inspired pond garden, with its zig zag bridge, feels silent and meditative. The Mountain garden is filled with evergreens, wild flowers and penstemon and uses the seven principles of xeric gardening . The orchard and fruit garden is for those who want function along with their beauty. The native grass meadow is for those who want to learn how they might include native grasses in their garden plans. Each garden flows into the other and unites the entire garden giving one a feeling of abundance, peace and accomplishment. It’s those feelings we wish to help you create within your own garden.
