About Us

Fox Hill Gardens was founded in 1990 when owner John Allegar decided to start a homeowner’s nursery. John transformed virtually all of the 2 1/2 acre property into a rolling landscape chock full of beauty in every season.

Fox Hill Gardens is open for sales spring to fall each year, sourcing plants appropriate for Pennsylvania’s climate, along with fertilizer, soil amendment, mulch, straw, stone, and other hard and soft landscaping materials. Our seasonal displays include annuals, hanging baskets, and special holiday selections.

We offer more than 450 varieties of perennials, specializing in natives and shade plants, and over 200 types of woody trees, shrubs and groundcovers. Fox Hill Gardens has been described as a maze you will enjoy getting lost in.

Come peruse the sales area to learn more about plants, brainstorming your new garden. Ask the staff for plant lists by theme, such as deer-resistant shrubs or perennial natives. You are welcome to wander through the hoophouses, pull up a bench to daydream in the landscape, and stroll by the ponds where the water flora and fauna grow.

Call us year-round, or stop in during the season, to inquire about design consultations, plant delivery and installation, and to order specific plants.
