Hello and welcome to my world…of garden centers! Since I was a wee little girl, I’ve been happiest when among the greenery of living plants. While some are traditionally pretty, such as roses and peonies, I see beauty in all plants. And believe me, there are some very weird looking plants out there!
So, why do I love garden centers? You may think they just sell plants. They do. However, that’s not all they do.
Garden centers are magical places. They sell plants to produce food, shade, shelter and beauty. They provide knowledge about growing plants, gardening, landscaping, and design. Their insights to living with “critters” such as deer, insects, rabbits and birds allow us to understand the web of life within our gardens. Many garden centers also assist us with creating our personal lifestyle that often brings the outdoors into our homes.
