My name is Kenneth Rice and I’m the sole proprietor of Log Cabin Perennials, a one acre nursery located in Saco Maine, 6 miles from the Atlantic Ocean, and about 15 miles south of Portland, in USDA plant hardiness zone 5. The vast majority of the plants I sell are grown here- some of them I have had for over 30 years. A walk through my gardens will show the customer how the plants appear growing in the ground as they would in their own garden. In April, I dig and pot up into 1 gallon containers nearly all of what I sell for the season. I open on the first of May, and at $5 each for every pot, I begin selling out of some plants by late May, especially popular varieties, those in short supply, or ones that sell for much more at other nurseries, so get here early! The winter of 2018/2019 was hell on perennials. I lost thousands of plants, including some which I've had for years and years. It will take a few years more to grow them back to what they were, and a few I will not replace.
