Sustainable Dream Greenhouses

Sustainable Dream Greenhouses highlights annual and perennial vegetables, herbs, and flowers, with particular emphasis on edible ornamentals and perennial fruits & vegetables.

Nestled in the coulees, under the bluffs along the Root River, between LaCrosse WI and Rochester MN, at mile-marker 247 on Hwy 16, or more locally, between Peterson MN and Whalan, MN, this Greenhouse awaits you on a road less travelled.

Relax and enjoy the drive along the meandering river road. Bring a picnic and make a day of it, float the river or take advantage of the miles of bike/walking trails. Fish. Be sure to allow plenty of time to browse my greenhouse as I grow many unique and hard to find starts other area growers do not offer.

Be sure to keep an eye on my Event Page, as this Greenhouse hosts many events and celebrations, including Rhubarb Festivus, a Mother's Day Special Celebration, the Whalan MN Standstill Parade, a Fathers Day Celebration, Farmers Markets, Instructional Seminars, Hands-on demonstrations and so much more... I look forward to helping you choose the plants that are perfectly suited to your Iowa/Wisconsin/Minnesota gardens.

I love the Sustainable Dream Greenhouse. Sally is on the cutting edge of what is new and how best to grow it. It is a great place to learn about all things growing.... [more]

I've been going to see Sally for my plants for a couple years now. She is always helpful and has a great selection. It's nice going to an owner operated greenhouse because I get personal service and Sally treats me like a friend, not just another customer. You should check it out.

I love going to Sustainable Dream Greenhouse because Sally knows her stuff! (It is so refreshing after walking in to one greenhouse in the area to be told that all hostas are the same size.... [more]
