To visit our garden on Virginia's Eastern Shore on the Delmarva Peninsula, either travel north from Virginia Beach on RT 13 to Exmore, VA, turn north on Rt. 178 (traffic light at the Exxon station). Go about 1 mile and turn left at the Phillips Trustworthy Hardware Store (still Rt. 178N) toward Craddockville. Go about four miles (road winds a bit), bear right at Craddockville United Methodist Church and go about 1 mile. Turn left onto Island Neck Road and go to the end. We are the last home on the left - cream with blue-green shutters and lots of daylilies.

If you want to find us using GPS, enter 12324 Island Neck Rd., Painter, VA.

If you are coming south from Salisbury, Maryland, come south on RT 13 to Painter, VA, turn right at the traffic light onto RT 614. Go about 5 miles until road comes to a T with RT 178 (Boston Rd), turn right. Go about 1/2 mile and turn left on Island Neck Road.

If you are coming to visit and know some of the plants that you wish to buy, send us your list ahead of time so that we can have them dug for you. We appreciate your patience. Plants can be ordered for fall but may not be dug while you wait in July – depends upon the weather.

We have a policy in the garden of letting children (<16 years old) select the daylily of their choice from the field. If we have sufficient quantity, we dig a double fan for them to take home for their garden. We have found that this is a great way to get youth excited about gardening and while they are deciding on their very favorite, the parents have a chance to look around too.
