Welcome to Thomas Orchards,
Greenhouse & Giftshop!

We are Oconee County's premier Greenhouse - Giftshop and Nursery Facility. We specialize in unique plants, outdoor art, pottery, fresh-picked peaches and more. Bring the kids! We always have several flavors of homemade ice cream. More About Us


Sampling Saturdays are back!  Each Saturday morning (9am-12pm) we will have fresh coffee and goodies to try in the Giftshop all the way through the end of the day Saturday, December 19th when we close for the holidays--and our dormant period.  We will re-open Wednesday, February 3rd for our winter hours (Wednesday-Saturday 9am-5pm).

Our annual plant clearance starts on November 30th and will continue until we close.  There will be big sales on pottery and in the Giftshop, too!

Jerry has been making regular trips to Blue Ridge for fresh picked apples. Our apple schedule has been updated and we have several varieties! Keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates whenever he makes another trip. We post each time with the varieties he is able to bring back for us!

Outside in the nursery the tables are full of fall color--pansies, violas, snapdragons, Camellias and other tough shrubs that are ready to be planted have arrived along with a unique selection of miniature conifers and bonsai from the West Coast.

Come see what's new at the Orchard!

Are you interested in having a raised bed garden? We have teamed up with Super Sod to simplify the experience! You can plant herbs, vegetables and ornamentals in the beds without having to deal with the heavy, red clay that is so prevalent in Georgia. Visit their website for more information:
