Hilltop’s Hodge Podge Nursery stands ready to turn your garden’s brown Winter frown upside down! Our horticultural healthcare covers ALL pre-existing gardening conditions, and the Podge Posse’s “plant literati” will screen your gardening needs and carefully outline the “perks and quirks” for anything they might prescribe.
