Clay Thompson came to Tucson to attend the University of Arizona but grew up in Santa Fe, NM. As early as the third grade, he remembers admiring the black on black design of potter Maria Martinez during a field trip to a Zuni pueblo where she lived at the time. As a landscape designer, the shapes and textures of Native American artwork continue to influence him. Clay and his wife Julie have one son and one daughter, and together they enjoy collecting artwork for their home. Clay is a gourmet chef and also stays busy cross-stitching, sewing, and building frames for his tapestries.

Harlow Gardens is fabulous. It's small, but they really make the most of the space they have and I have almost always been able to find what I am looking for here.The staff is friendly and the plants are very good quality. I bought my veggie starts here this spring and even though the section is smaller, the varieties were ones that have reputations for being excellent in both quantity and quality. All the plants I've bought from here have thrived in the garden.Also - the prices are a bit less than I've seen elsewhere.

We just had some irrigation repair and maintenance done by their excellent staff. They arrived exactly when they said they would and fixed everything for a very fair price.

I'm sorry Donna DeConcini had such an unfortunate time at Harlow's. I think it is quite unique, and I've always had good luck with what I've purchased there. When I'm in need of gardening advice, I just look for one of the hard working people, and they are always willing to stop what they are doing and take care of my gardening questions. I'm not usually dressed in anything special nor do I receive any special considerations, just the answers to my questions, however long it may take. I'm sure one could go to almost any nursery and find some plants that are almost dead if that's what one is looking for, and I'm sure in the middle of June that wouldn't be hard to do. My only complaint is when they have sales, I can't go to them as I have to park too far away and can't walk the distance to get back to the nursery. I love Harlow's whether it is browsing through their gift store, choosing pots or garden art, or selecting plants. I've also enjoyed some of their special events.

I have always been well served by Harlow's....There are knowledgeable and patient persons to educate the gardener in what selections to make and useful advice on how to be successful in tending plants. And, Harlows was founded in the year of my birth...I appreciate their history ...
