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!!
