Key Benefits of Johnston's Garden Center

  • Plant selection Because our garden center is part of our wholesale nursery, we have full command of the resources of one of the region's largest nurseries. This is an enormous advantage to our customers, as some other garden centers must rely on third party nurseries for their plant material which can be inconvenient for availability and provide inconsistent quality.
  • Knowledgeable sales staff It is difficult for any company to find and keep knowledgeable people. Since our nursery is family-owned and operated, we have family members on staff to help our sales team with your plant inquiries--the same family members that have been raised growing our plants.
  • Quality Since we are family-owned and operated, we take great pride in our plants. We have worked since 1955 to build a reputation for our plants and will work even harder in the future to protect and deserve that reputation.
  • Local Delivery We do offer local delivery for our plant material. Ask your sales person for details.
  • Landscapers Our garden center is open to them as well. It is a great way to talk to your landscaper about your project. Call us to confirm our hours and then make arrangements to meet your landscaper at our garden center. This way you and your landscaper can be certain of what you want concerning your plant selection. As always, our sales staff is available to direct you to plants you may not be able to find, but otherwise you and your landscaper can utilize this resource on your own. In addition, you can select and purchase plants on your own, our garden center will hold them for you while you make arrangements for your landscaper to pick them up. Just let us know when they are to be picked up and we will prepare the order for you.
  • FREE Landscape Design when you buy your plants from Johnston's. Learn more.
