About Us

Moonlight Nursery is based in Millsboro, Delaware and specializes in growing African Violets.  The business is owned and operated by Louise Thompson.  I offer weekly auctions and Buy It Now listings of plants and leaf sets through eBay – username: Moonlight_Nursery.  In addition, I offer direct sales of leaves and, occasionally, starter plants.

The catalog is a work in progress.  As varieties come into bloom and I am able to photograph them, I am adding them to the catalog.  There will be several catalog updates in 2017.  My inventory will have a special focus on vintage varieties and those bred by individual hybridizers such as the Mac and Allegro series.

I practice a long isolation period (6 months or more) before introducing any new varieties into the growing area and also grow out any new addition to ensure that it is blooming true to the description before making it available for sale.

The growing operations are located on a property adjacent to our house.  While the business does not have a retail location, if you are in the area, you are welcome to make an appointment to pick up an order.  We are located about 30 minutes from the Delaware and Maryland beach areas – Rehoboth Beach and Lewes, DE and Ocean City, MD are all a short drive away!

  1. It was a pleasure to meet you. I sat next to you at the Friday dinner.

    Thank you for your generous gift of table favors to the MAAVS convention. I will mention your business at our next AV meeting.

    • Thank you so much! It was so nice to meet so many members at the Convention. I wish we could have stayed longer at dinner – my little guy ended up having an allergic reaction to dairy which explained why he was fussy at dinner that night!
