I’m Barry Glick

Nursery Man and Plant Lover

Welcome to Sunshine Farm and Gardens

Mission Statement

Hmmmm, a mission statement? Well, I guess that I’d have to say that I envision Sunshine Farm & Gardens to be a bridge between the most knowledgeable people in a particular genus of plants and the home gardener. While that is an oversimplification of all of our ongoing projects, it kinda sums it up.
Sunshine Farm & Gardens is the brainchild of Barry Glick, who takes full responsibility for all of the chaos and havoc surrounding the incredible palette of rare and unusual, but mostly idiotproof plants.

In the past 32 years we’ve managed to amass a diverse collection of well over 10,000 different, hardy to zone 5 perennials, bulbs, trees and shrubs from every corner of the Earth on our 60-acre mountain top at 3000 feet in beautiful Greenbrier County WV.

The Display Gardens

The Display Gardens were completely redesigned by Mr. Matthew Bishop of Devon England in 1993 and several thousand new plants were planted in the existing 24-year-old garden. Take a virtual tour of the gardens through the photographs taken in June 2000 by world-famous garden photographer Mark Turner of Turner Photographics. Visitors are welcome with advance notice.

Our Plants

Our plant list offers descriptions of a selection of the 10,000 plants growing in the collections here at the gardens. Many of these plants are in commercial production, and available in retail and wholesale quantities. Others are available for custom propagation. 

Our state of the art tissue culture laboratory is involved in experimental genetics on plant material with the  goal of developing new and better plants for landscape and gardens.

Focus on Hellebores

The main focus of plant breeding at SF & G is within the genus Helleborus. Barry has spent the last decade combing the Earth for new germplasm to enhance the bloodlines of his Helleborus x hybridus strains. Virtually every species within the genus is also grown. Barry maintains more than 50,000 flowering size stock plants for seed production.

Events

During the year our events include lectures, slide presentations and workshops at different locations both here and abroad. Check our Events Calendar for details.

Ordering

While we are primarily a wholesale nursery serving the Garden Center, Landscaper, Landscape Architect, Landscape Designer and Wholesale Regrower market, we do offer limited mailorder to Home Gardeners where we have no established retailers.
