We believe our passion for the spirit of Japanese gardens is evident in the extensive and highly desirable offerings found at Oriental Garden Supply, LLC. We work with other plant professionals across the country to bring you rare and unusual plants from around the world. Whether you are looking for just a little something out of the ordinary or something extraordinary for your own garden or your landscaping project, we can supply unusual plant material that we consider highly desirable because of aesthetic appeal, hardiness, low maintenance, flowering, or other characteristics.
Our stock lists include approximately 500 Japanese maple cultivars, over 1200 conifers including dwarf conifers, hinoki, and specimens suitable for bonsai, and over 1000 woody ornamentals, not to mention various and sundry ferns, grasses, bamboos, and perennials. We also offer an eclectic assortment of authentic materials such as bamboo fencing, and granite and basalt garden accessories to help you ensure success in your garden and landscape designs.

The rest of the story:
Oriental Garden Supply was originally formed because of a great love of Japanese style gardens, their plants, ornaments, and aesthetic appeal. We offer an array of authentic materials to help you realize your garden vision.
We have continued to evolve into a dedicated group of garden enthusiasts who will drop just about everything to talk about, examine, acquire, propagate, or otherwise be involved with really worthwhile plants. What thrills our souls is the variety of nature’s bounty, a plant grown well, and garden features that we would want in our own gardens.
We are primarily a working nursery supplying unusual plant material that we consider worthy of use because of its aesthetic appeal, hardiness, low maintenance, flowering, or other characteristics. We sell to discriminating nurseries, garden centers, landscape professionals, and gardeners looking for that something special. We are secondarily a garden center and, although return customers are always pleased at year-to-year progress in the ‘amenities’, you might consider boots on a rainy day to examine all corners of the property. We currently occupy 8 acres and grow over 25,000 plants, primarily in containers, from rooted cuttings to landscape specimens.
Although it is a bit of a cliché to call us a green business, we take the environment and our impact on it seriously. Over 30 programmable irrigation zones that we adjust for seasonal and plant needs tightly control and reduce water use significantly. In 2008, we installed a geothermal heating system to replace propane and oil heat in our propagation areas and our office and sales area. The system consists of a horizontal loop field and has almost eliminated our burning of propane and oil. We also do our propagation in a greenhouse that has an earth berm and thermal curtain to reduce energy consumption.
Looking to buy?
Come visit the nursery locally or search on our website. We endeavor to keep our plant availability up-to-date, but cannot always do so as promptly as we would like during the busy season. A personal visit to the nursery might also give you a sneak peak at future offerings!
Looking for designs?
Our primary business is growing plants, although we have considerable experience and expertise in designing gardens. However, we have limited time in the spring to leave the nursery for site inspections if you are a local customer. If you would like suggestions, it is best if you bring or send pictures, have some idea of what you would like to accomplish, and give us the compass orientation of your site with sunlight information. We do large color designs as our schedule allows and they generally range from $200-$500 with 50% of the charge available to apply towards plant purchases. This would normally include a site visit up to 1 hour in length for smaller designs, a design and plant list for you to keep, and a review of recommended plants at the nursery.

Need delivery? (retail)
As a guideline, we can deliver most plants for $45 within a 20 mile radius of the nursery. We use an enclosed truck to protect their foliage, and can move them to the proposed planting location. This fee generally applies for up to 5 plants up to 25 gallon(trade size). For an additional $20 per plant, we will provide soil amendments, plant them if you’ve dug a hole to our recommended size, and mulch them and stake them if required. Other work will be billed at $75/hour.
We also deliver to other nurseries and garden centers in the Northeast and may be able to include larger plants for a drop charge if we are in your area. We can also use common carrier, weather-allowing. Inquire for availability and pricing.
