Your Sherie is a gardeners dream! She located and ordered a plant for me as well as helped locate in store plants and care. Because of her help I have found $300 worth of gorgeous plants. She has been a Garden Angel over the years.  Thank you!  - Christine B.

Your store is beautiful! When asking location of plants, no matter how busy, they take the time to walk you out and help. The displays are inviting and inspire ideas and cause me to spend more money! It’s like going to Costco! Keep up the good work! – Travis T.

Employees are always friendly and helpful – place looks good and plants are healthy. It’s my favorite place to spend my money! – Raeann H.
