New orders are currently paused due to unforeseeable circumstances - wishlists can still be managed! We appreciate your patience and understanding and we will be back to accepting orders & shipping as soon as we can! Please check back late May for further updates.


Below is a list of the basic collections of plants available from the Glasshouse Works, including many items which would cost considerably more if ordered individually. You will find groups of plants reflecting plant families (such as fat lilies & Gesneriads) or individual genera (such as Ivies, Coleus, or Begonias) as well as theme collections of plants all compatible for a particular environment or use (such as terrarium or outdoor urns, or topiaries). The list finishes some giant inclusive collections aimed at getting you started in your greenhouse, on your windowboxes or club plant sale. Enjoy reading through them. We have added new ones for 2013! The "Terrarium Collections" are amoung our most popular.

For those curious about trying a new family or genus of plants, or for a compatible assortment of companion plants--as well as those interested in a bargain--these plant collections are the answer. Many customers also have found that these collections contitute a perfect birthday or holiday gift. Several new collections are offered as new fads and fashions emerge.

Be sure to notice the particular target collections that are aimed at the spring or summertime bedding season. We offer various collections which work well in urns, pots and tubs on the patio, in the garden border, and in window boxes. Please note: Special shipping rates apply to the two large Greenhouse Hobbyist Collections as their price includes some of the shipping costs. Remember the base charge only needs to be added once for your entire order.

Notes on Plant Collections:

  • All plants will be labeled; no duplicates will be included unless you so request--unless you have ordered several of the exact same collection which would necessarily involve duplications.
  • If you already have several plants in a category and wish to order a collection of this group, simply include the names of what you already have (in the comment section) so we can try to avoid sending duplicates.  If we only have/maintained those ordered individually within the same group duplicates are possible.
  • If you designate specific plants in a collection, we will entertain your suggestions but cannot guarantee or promise their inclusion. If you want a particular plant, order it from the main catalogue.
  • A number of plant society chapters, garden clubs, public garden plant sales houses, etc. regularly order these very economic collections to raise money for their groups or institutions; if your group or sales area would like quotes for larger numbers of plants, or different categories (such as plants for young children, Crassula family members, hanging basket or wreath making subjects, etc.) please write or call us for specific quotations.
  • Because of the demands on our mailorder, collections cannot be picked up on our open days unless you have provided us with your want list at least a week ahead so these plants might be pulled with other orders at the beginning of the shipping days. They are mailorder only. Our walk in area has a fine selection of plants at all time available for your selection when you arrive--you will find many selections not individually listed on the website as well as the more popular catalogue offerings on the benches Fridays and Saturdays, as well as larger specimens and hanging baskets.

The catalogue will periodically have other Collections available. We might possibly change the variety here also during the year, as stocks and crops change.
