A Little About the Nursery

Welcome to Hoot Owl Hollow !

The Perennial Gardens at Hoot Owl Hollow have been in existence for over 40 years, gradually evolving from very practical vegatable gardens, to less filling, but more soul satisfying ornamental beds. Over the past twenty or so years they have been greatly expanded to the point where, despite having 108 acres available, we are running out of space on the seven or so acres that we intensively garden. The rest of the land is primarily in woods, lovely to walk through any time of the year, but especially in the spring to see the wildflowers.

Hoot Owl Hollow is primarily a collage of year round pleasure gardens, plant collections, a dotage in retirement, and a scandal to people who find nature untidy.

Please come and visit us at 4308 Rhoric Road, New Marshfield, Ohio. (just 7 miles west of Athens). This is a year round garden and there is almost always something blooming, or otherwise showing off, even in the coldest weather. In 2019, there was something in bloom every month of the year. Please write or e-mail ahead as we do not keep scheduled open garden hours. Our Map and directions should get you here, though most people just seem to use GPS (punch in our city as Athens, not New Marshfield - long story) and do just fine.
