If you haven’t had the opportunity to take one of these workshops, take time this year to come back and make a wreath or a tree with us. And if you have taken these workshops before then you know how fun they are, come back and join us again this year. Our greenery is due to arrive Nov 19th. We hit the ground running when the greenery makes it to our door. A limited amount of time and a bunch or decorations to be made. Most years it seems like a blur, but I can safely say I think all of us at Thienemans enjoy this time of year. Even if you don’t make it back for one of our workshops, we invite you to come back and spend some time in our cozy greenhouses. Already finished wreaths and tabletop trees will be for sale.

Call us to sign up for a workshop, 502.296.1499. If you have a minimum of 5 people, we are open to scheduling a class for you and your friends.

Thieneman’s Greenhaus is a family owned and operated garden center, located in beautiful Coxs Creek, KY.
Two years ago we took a leap of faith and decided to relocate our garden center after the family farm sold.
We found a picturesque 10 acre farm just south of Mt Washington and we started settling in. After not quite 2 years now, we still feel like we’re moving in. But we thankfully didn’t have to skip a season.
We had a great first year, and it looks like we’ll have a great second year. We are extremely thankful our loyal customers followed us, and a bunch of new people have found us too.
We have been specializing in herbs and perennials for almost 60 years. Our herb collection is probably the largest in the area. For 15 years now we have grown a large variety of heirloom tomatoes, peppers and veggies. And we have a great love for succulents as well, our collection is ever growing.Our goal is to be your favorite local garden center known for unusual and hard to find plants. We love our plants!!
