Thunder Ridge is a privately owned and
maintained garden in south central Wisconsin
(formerly zone 4b, now zone 5, thanks to
global warming!). Our land includes several
perennial/annual flower beds, including
over 40 named iris varieties, an 80x30 vegetable
bed, an orchard, an oak/conifer forest,
and 25 acres maintained in the federal government's
Conservation Reserve Program (CRP). I have
a Master Gardener Certification from the
University of Massachusetts.
We do our best to be primarily organic.
Anything that is for consumption, including
vegetables, fruit and edible flowers is
always grown organically. This site provides
articles and growing information for the
area, including organic controls that prove
successful. We also have irises available
for sale and trade during the summer. Thunder
Ridge Gardens is proud to offer the very
best vegetables, herbs, flowers and seeds
from the finest gardening retailers. We've
brought together the best plants and products
from Henry Fields, Gardens
Alive, Plow and Hearth, White Flower Farm and Dutch Gardens.
Check out these great gardening products from Gardener's Supply.
