Mark and Amanda Shenstone

Graceful Gardens is a small family nursery focusing on plants used in the traditional cottage garden. We love growing our plants and from all the kind and enthusiastic letters we get, we know you love growing them, too.

We are lucky to live in the beautiful Finger Lakes region of New York near Ithaca. Everything we do for fun or work brings us outdoors. Almost everyday we make time to run, bike, ski or hike. Our dogs Scooter and Lily insist on their morning walk. Our daughter, Esperanza at 16, has her own list of sports and a whole lot of socializing to do. We would be lost without her on Saturdays at the Ithaca Farmers Market.

For Mark and I, our farm is a very personal endeavor. We take great pride in growing every plant that is shipped to you. Each flower you receive is grown from start to finish in our greenhouses resulting in healthy and vigorous plants. Remember, we specialize in mail-order plants. We personally select and carefully pack all of our plants before shipping. We hope you find the same joy as we do when you are outside enjoying your garden.

Best Wishes,

Mark and Amanda Shenstone

PS. We couldn't coerce our 16 year old to join us in the picture but she was willing to take our picture and for that we thank her very much!

"Hi Amanda and Mark! Just wanted to let you know that I received my order right on schedule and the plants are once again BEAUTIFUL! My friend and I (she orders with me) are so happy that we found you! Talk to you again next year....until then...."
