About Us

How does your garden grow? Ask us. We know.

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 and Florist, you’ll find such people in abundance. All of us are either trained in horticulture or are simply passionate about what we do. When you get your plantings from us, we show you how to make them 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.

Open 7 days a week

Started in 1980, The Gardener’s Center and Florist is a second-generation, family business based in Darien, CT. As a community mainstay, our business was built on and sustained by excellent personal service and carefully selected plant material. Our knowledgeable teams have been helping local gardeners for decades, and we are grateful to continue this tradition.

We are constantly evolving to reflect the changing needs of our customers and of our planet. Our team embraces responsible and sustainable gardening with an emphasis on creating a living, biodynamic soil structure that helps to naturally ward off pests and diseases, while requiring no artificial supplements. We proudly feature a wide selection of pollinator friendly and locally grown, native plants that need minimal amendments to thrive in our area. Most recently, The Gardener’s Center and Florist earned our Northeast Organic Farming Association (NOFA) certification, reflecting our commitment to organic, sustainable gardening.
