In 1993, I started High Country Gardens, the mail order division of Santa Fe Greenhouses, my retail nursery company in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Our online catalog has been in operation since 2000, with my wife, Ava Salman, heading the marketing and e-commerce operations.
New Retail Garden Center
In 2006, we opened the High Country Gardens retail garden center at the Jackalope store in Albuquerque. The 6500 square foot garden center is stocked with our quality High Country Gardens plants and merchandise. Map
“I wanted to make shopping our catalog a fun, convenient and hassle-free way to buy top-quality plants and products.”
Award Winning Plants
Take a look at our beautiful award-winning plants. High Country Gardens has won 9 out of 9 consecutive awards for best new plant introduction from the Mail Order Gardening Association.
We have spent years perfecting our growing methods for a wide variety of new and unusual garden-tested perennials, grasses and shrubs that ship right from our greenhouses to your landscape.
