Sammis Greenhouse is located at 2407 Upper Brush Valley Road, Centre Hall, PA.
Business phone: (814) 364-2881
Hours: We are open from mid-April to about the end of October every year. Please call for our current hours, as they change throughout the season!
We grow all of our plants on-site, and throughout the season also bring back a great selection of mostly-local produce from a nearby auction. (Try the tomatoes, they’re delicious!!)
Most of our vegetable plants will be ready mid to late May (we recommend planting after Memorial Day, to avoid frost). If there’s something special you’re looking for, it might be best to call ahead and see what’s available.
Sammis Greenhouse is handicap accessible; outside display areas are black-topped, the inside of the greenhouse is completely paved with concrete, and our parking lot is now mostly black-topped as well!
Sammis, not Sammy’s! A lot of people mispronounce our name; the greenhouse is owned and run by Leo Sammis. There is no Sammy. Or Sammi. :)
Who’s writing this blog?
I’m Leigh Ann Gagnon (formerly Sammis), Leo’s daughter. I’ve been growing the herbs here at the greenhouse since 2000. I graduated from college in May of 2009; while I was away it was difficult to coordinate a lot of the information that our herb customers seemed to be looking for, when they were looking for it . Even though I’m home now and will be more accessible to assist customers with herb-related questions in the greenhouse, I thought this blog might be an excellent way to make the information available at all times, any time you have a question or need to see what’s in stock.
So fire away! Let me know what sorts of things you’re interested in knowing when you buy or use herbs, and help us to better serve your needs. I love growing herbs, and I’d love to pass some of that enjoyment on to you.
