A customer came back to say "THANK YOU!" You saved her garden with your suggestions. She has veggies growing because of your ideas.

Cindy (Veggie Lady)

Customers who bought over $400 of perennials said they went to every garden center in town and came back here because we had the best selection and best looking plants at the lowest prices.

"Your garden center is one of the absolute best!! My gardening friends agree with me!! It's so nice to be greeted (and some of the girls even remember me ... because I shop there a lot!!)"

We were impressed with her knowledge of plants, shrubs, and suggestions for edging and small retaining wall. She listened to our likes, dislikes and ideas from amateurs."
