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


The nursery is full of fall color.  Mums, Pansies, Violas, Hardy Ornamentals and cool season veggies are here.  Time to get ready for fall planting!

Our fall shipment of Camellias has arrived!  It is a bit earlier than usual, but we are excited to see them.  There are a few that are new to us.  The Southern Living Collection 'Crimson N' Clover' is a beauty with red flowers and reddish new foliage.  Camellia brevistyla has been tree-formed and will have masses of tiny, pink flowers in fall.  There are a few other plants of interest that came with this shipment---two types of tea olive, Oakleaf hydrangeas, Big-leaf Magnolia, 'Stellar Ruby' Banana shrub...

Fresh apples from Blue Ridge in the shop now are Sun Crisp, Honeycrisp (Pennsylvania), Mutzu, September Wonder/Fuji, Cameo, Granny Smith, Red Delicious and Rome.

Come see what's blooming and enjoy some peach ice cream!

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:
