Merry Christmas, Happy New Year!

I want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

I want to thank all my customers that made this a very successful year here at the nursery. I hope to see most, if not all of you again in the spring.

Hi, my name is Roger Higgins and I am the owner, propagator and chief weed puller of Roger’s Backyard Nursery. I grow hundreds, hundreds and hundreds of plants right here in our backyard, here in “downtown” Cranesville, PA. Nothing large and fancy here. No greenhouses. Everything is perennial. Flowering and evergreen shrubs, hostas, ornamental grasses, coral bells, and flowering plants. All started and grown right here, not trucked in from somewhere else.
