Field Trip ~ Country Lane Succulents, New Holland, PA
If you are headed to Lancaster County, Pennsylvania for a day trip or vacation, get off the main road and find this rural gem. Only a few miles from the tourist attractions, Country Lane Succulents will be a stop you will remember!
Located at 152 Snyder Drive, New Holland, PA 17557, Country Lane Succulents is an amazing find for any avid gardener. Lancaster County is already known for its many greenhouses and plant growers, but Country Lane has a dizzying amount of succulents all displayed in imaginative ways. The ladies who tend this greenhouse have raised it to an art form.
A field of pumpkins, a flourishing vegetable garden and lovely flowerbeds welcome you down the country lane.
Along the side of the barn, huge boulders have been stacked into a wall. Tucked into the crevices and pocket spaces are many varieties of hardy succulents.
Rusty, crusty items such as old wagons and bikes are a wonderful contrast to the defined, florets and whorls of the sedums and succulents they are planted with.
Farm equipment and tools are used in the displays by the barn wall, each one more creative than the last!
Succulents planted in bicycle baskets add a unique touch to this vintage bike planter.
Everywhere you look are succulents in arrangements for sale. If you don’t find what you want in all these lovely plantings, the owners will graciously plant up a container of your choosing or one you’ve brought from home!
There’s a small greenhouse used to start and keep the less cold-hardy succulents during the winter months. But most are out on their summer vacation all around the farm today.
Under the grape vine draped pergola on the porch, many houseplants and annuals are tucked into repurposed containers. My favorite was the vintage laundry tubs filled with individual pots of shade-lovers.
On the porch, you’ll find many imaginative combinations of annuals and succulents in unusual containers for sale.
Vintage finds, driftwood and succulents adorn a flowerbed on the walk to the greenhouse.
Old roasting pans, dust pans and rusty chairs become something special when planted with succulents and grouped together.
And, how about this gazebo made from an old corn crib? Isn’t it wonderful? Planted with several different kinds of Clematis, it provides a cool,shady place from which to survey the farm. Filled with repurposed doors, shutters, tables and seats, this is a great place to sit a spell and soak up inspirations.
