Hello fellow gardeners!!!

Mater Days is in a matter of weeks and everyone is getting super excited.

Doors open at 9am Friday April 17th!!

This year we have 140+ varieties of tomatoes, including interesting new hybrids, heirlooms and Kentucky heirlooms.  We have 80+ varieties of peppers ranging from sweet to super hot. And we have lots of great veggies including eggplants, tomatillos, melons, lettuces, cold crops, etc! Plus, of course, herbs to pair with all your produce.

We are keeping our fingers crossed for great weather, and expect to have another wonderful turnout. Remember, it’s first come first serve, so if you want the best selection of varieties come early. Super hot peppers seem to always go fast.

Below are links to varieties for 2015.

Sowing Seeds and Taking Cuttings!!!


The time has come again to join us in prepping for spring. Come brighten your spirits, get your hands in some dirt, and grow some baby plants! This spring, thus far, the only class we are offering is  Sowing Seeds and Taking Cuttings. We know many of you are repeat students (which we love BTW), and if you’ve never had the opportunity to join us for this class then join this spring.  It’s a wonderful class about learning the basics of seed and cutting propagation. You spend two hours with us during the initial class, then you leave your plants and come back and visit them over the next month or so and watch them grow. Yep, we take care of your seeds and cuttings and when you come to check on them you are welcome to spend some time transplanting them into pots. We will watch them till the clock strikes April 15th, then they turn into pumpkins. lol.

It’s truly a unique experience. Take the time to join us for a class, and go home with buckets of plant knowledge and plants!
You must register in advance. Class fee is $35

Thieneman’s Mater Days in memory of the “Mater Man”, Gary Millwood.


As many of you may already be aware Gary Millwood passed away last year. He was the inspiration behind our ‘Mater Days.  Gary would come out to the nursery and talk for hours with our customers about the history behind some of the heirloom tomatoes.  We hope you will join us during Mater Days this year and share your stories about Gary and perhaps any stories you may have about an heirloom vegetable.  Come celebrate his life, and carry on his enormous enthusiasm and love for tomatoes.

Our plant sale starts friday April 18th   9:00am-7:00pm (if it isn’t zero degrees) we have over 150 varieties of tomatoes and 75 varieties of Peppers.   Other vegetables include cucumbers, eggplants, squash and melons, some very unique.

Some varieties are limited so shop early!  We will not reserve any plants or ship vegetable plants.  Thank you and see you soon.

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!!
