Loomis Creek Nursery; A Goodbye

I spent a full season working at Loomis Creek Nursery. Once a week on Fridays from 9-5, I would make the journey across the Hudson River to this plantsmans paradise.

Loomis Creek is the brain-child of Bob Hyland and Andrew Beckman. Plantsmen, authors and lecturers, they decided to open the nursery eight years ago in Columbia County after looking in Connecticut and elsewhere.
After eight years at the nursery with their manager Robert Anderson, Bob and Andrew have decided to relocate to Portland Oregon to start a new gardening adventure.
We all wish them luck and can't wait to see what they will do next.

I can't tell you how much I have learned from everyone there at Loomis Creek. My knowledge has been enriched, my taste has changed, and I will never forget my time there.

Thank you so much Bob, Andrew, Robert and everyone else who made the experience there unforgettable!

  1. On a driving summer vacation through New England my partner and I made a destination stop at Loomis (we're from Washington, DC). Just a magical place. So few nurseries or nurserymen show such a love of plants and such creativity. In the dead of winter I often visualize that beautiful August day at Loomis. So sad to see them go. Best of luck to them both in Oregon! By the way, I love your blog!
