Arid Adaptations also offers consultation, potted installations, and design services. Contact us for more information.
We have been growing plants in Tucson since 1992. The last ten years were at the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum as a horticulturist in the botany department. As our personal plant collection began growing out of hand, it became obvious that a nursery was the only answer. With six greenhouses, 50,000 plants, lots of dogs, 15 chickens, turtles, and great landscaping we have a wonderful oasis in the desert.
