Once upon a time the Garden Shop was our propagation house - it now carries wonderfully melodic Woodstock wind chimes, charming containers, and Cole's Wild Bird Seed. The garden shop features a regularly changing array of seasonal decor, indoor pottery including Orchid, Bonsai and self-watering African Violet pots, and plant supplies such as Jack's Classic (formerly JR Peters) Houseplant Special, All Purpose, Blossom Booster, African Violet, and Orchid Special fertilizers. For a unique gift, look for our custom-created terrariums and dish gardens, easy-to-care-for Air Plants, and decorative tiles. Also provided in the Garden Shop are Plant Nannies, coco liners, and pet memorial accessories.
Our selection of pottery includes glazed ceramic, light weight, terra cotta, and old English concrete pots. Accent your landscaping with classic statuary such as bird baths, stepping stones, and benches.
Soils, Fertilizers, Mulches & Amendments
Our native clay soils can be challenging for new plantings and gardeners alike! Successful gardeners start their plants off right with the best soil amendments, mulches, and fertilizers. We carry everything you need to give your turf and landscape what it needs to thrive.
We are proud to supply Daddy Pete's Cow Manure, Lawn and Garden Soil, Perennial Pleaser, Planting Mix, Planting Mix Plus PermaTill, Potting Mix, Raised Bed Mix, Soil Enhancer, and Hardwood and Pinebark mulch. For smaller potted plants, we recommend Fafard Complete Container Mix.
We enjoy creating a destination in your own yard. To begin, bring a few pictures and measurements along with the direction the area faces and how well the area drains (is there standing water?). From there we will be able to determine which plants would work best in your area and what types of soil amendments and fertilizers would be best suited for you.
Asheville-grown pumpkins, gourds, and fresh wreaths and greens are available during the holidays.
