Before You Come
to Creekside

  • Check to make sure we are open! Our website, Facebook, & Google post our current hours of operation.
  • We only offer portable bathrooms during the peak season, so you might want to make a pit-stop before coming to the nursery.
  • Please be respectful of our neighbors and DRIVE SLOWLY on the gravel road! We have plenty of plants, so there is no need to drive like a NASCAR driver. If you are making dust then you need to slow down!!!
  • Bring your shopping list. Write down all of your must-haves because at the sight of all the gorgeous plants you might get distracted.
  • If you need our help in picking out plants then please know your growing conditions. How much sun does the space get? What are the dimensions of your beds? What is the diameter of your container?
  • Make room in your vehicle to take home lots of plants & gardening supplies. Worried about the dirt? Bring an old sheet to lay down in your car.
  • We accept cash and all major credit cards
  • Please extend grace and patience if the need arises. We take pride in taking care of our customers and giving you the individual attention that you deserve.
