Directions to the Nursery and Flower Pickup: 904 will Isaacs Rd. Zionville NC 28698. (physical address)
From downtown Boone, take Hwy. 421 north, 9 miles to Will Isaacs Rd. Turn right and go all the way to the top, to the dead-end. Take the left driveway at the dead-end. The Cooler/Pick-up point is right there as you turn left. Look for the Orange traffic cone. There are signs at the end of Will Isaacs Rd. (GPS is the wrong way) Google maps works. And there is also a map on this page.
Be sure that you have plenty of room inside the vehicle that you are using for pick-up. If you send someone, make sure to communicate this information. Flowers are somewhat delicate and do not like to be out of water, crushed or hot. Be cautious using any cooler, many are too cold.....
