Welcome to my obsession

Dirt Dawg Nursery is a small nursery that seeks out unusual, top quality plants to offer to our customers. Started in 2000 in Newark, NY as a novel hobby/obsession with roses, daylilies and dwarf conifers. Moving to Watertown TN in 2006 has allowed us to expanded our scope. Now with 10 acres in the country we can offer even more possibilities. We go on plant buying trips often, searching out other growers with interesting plants. If there is something you are looking for, we can help find it for you if we don’t have it.

Roses are our first passion but unusual conifers, witch hazels, hollies, and flowering quince have sparked an interest. In the future we plan to offer field grown iris and daylilies that will be fresh dug as you walk through the growing beds. Most will be named varieties but some will not. We try to grow most everything we sell in our own gardens. If it doesn’t grow well, then we do not offer it.  We have many display areas to explore.

We named our business for the dog that came with our TN house. She is a great helper along with the cat, Knucklehead, who was also part of the package.  We are plant-aholics and hope you become one also!
