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


Welcome March!  We are back to our regular 7 days a week schedule.  The kitchen renovation is finished (and beautiful) and you know what that means...Peach ice cream is BACK!!!

Our first plugs have been planted, our first tomato seeds have been planted, our first shipment of cool season herbs has arrived, our spring seeds from Botanical Interests are here...sounds like spring has arrived!  We will slowly start filling up the nursery as the weather improves. Feel free to let us know if you have any plant requests and we will do our best to find them for you.

SAVE THE DATE!!!  Our Spring Open House is on Saturday, April 13th this year!

The nursery has gotten a few new plants.  Winter blooming camellias, helleborus, flowering quince...we will be getting our shipment of fruiting plants in the next couple of weeks.  Our hot house is about to start filling up with babies.

Come see us and take a stroll thru the shop and nursery--there's always something new!

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:
