Welcome to Armstrong Garden Centers, El Cajon
I have worked for Armstrong Garden Center since 1998 and been in the horticulture industry since 1986. I love growing veggies and herbs, nothing beats being able to pick what you need from your own backyard! I especially enjoy growing succulents, there are so many varieties with cool colors and textures. One of my favorite parts of this job is greeting first-time customers and getting them more involved in the whole gardening experience, as well as welcoming back our regular customers. My friendly knowledgeable team will wow you with their customer service and their inspiring gardening ideas. Our store environment and displays will captivate you and encourage you to create your own garden oasis. Outside of work I like to play hockey and love spending time with my kids. Come see us! We'd love to help you with all your gardening needs. Be sure to check out our free gardening class too!
