Hickory Hill Heath & Heather Nursery Tour
Location: Hickory Hill Heath & Heather Nursery
2473 Hickory Hill Road (Rt. 472), Oxford, PA 19363
Program: Jane and Paul Murphy fulfilled their dream of opening a heath and heather nursery when they retired to Oxford, PA from their home in Newark, DE. Starting with a backyard greenhouse, they began propagating cultivars that would thrive in the mid-Atlantic region given the right growing conditions. Visitors to the nursery will see the beautiful heaths and heathers incorporated into the Murphy’s own gardens along with companion plants like witch hazel, conifers and other acid loving plants. Members of the NE Heather Society, the Murphys have used their hands on learning to bring year round color into the landscape and share their experiences with everyone who visits the nursery. The Hickory Hill Store will be open for business when we visit, ready with cultivars to add to our own gardens.
