Curious if you’re potting your plants correctly?
Many people are making mistakes when planting annuals in pots. Practices like filling the bottom of the pot with filler material, starting with a too-small of a container and overcrowding are a recipe for unhappy plants.

When your have questions, we're here to help!
It isn’t enough to just buy plants and tools and all the stuff it takes to practice the art of gardening. You need somebody to talk to, somebody in touch with the earth. At The Gardener’s Center, you’ll find such people.
We are either trained horticulturalists or are just head-over-roots passionate about what we do. Our mission is to help your gardens grow and flourish.
And if you need more help after you get them home, we’re here to give you that, too. Our goal is simple. We want to make you so good at gardening that it becomes second nature. Then, together, we can let the good times grow.
