Stopped in to get some odds and ends for my garden and ended up getting more than I needed as usual. Depending on what you are getting, some prices are higher than other stores and some are comparable. What I really like is how helpful and knowledgeable the employees are, especially Dylan P. Also, the woman at the register was very personable and knowledgeable, but unfortunately, I did not get her name. At least 2 other employees greeted me and asked if I needed anything. They get an A+ for customer service! Great selection of plants and decoratives too!

I called ahead to see if they carried Meyer lemon trees and which they did, the employee on the phone was very professional and helpful. Went to the store a couple of days later to get the tree and the employee that helped us there was very knowledgeable about the tree, was able to tell us the differences between a regular Meyer lemon tree and a semi dwarf Meyer lemon tree. He was also friendly and helpful! They even wrapped up the base of the tree for me since I told them that I just got my car detailed next door and didn't want dirt to dirty my newly shampooed carpet. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for something for their garden. They even have Christmas trees!

He was extraordinarily helpful and enthusiastic. Then he and another employee safely and carefully loaded them in my car after making sure I got the best price possible due to a sale. The plants are beautiful and it looks far nicer than if I had done this myself (I'm not a great gardener).

We were looking for a Silvertip Fir Christmas tree which is NOT easily found in the San Diego area which I found out from calling all day in the area to find a place that sold silvertip. We really wanted to get our tree on this day since our family was altogether. As we were heading from Pasadena back to San Diego, we did not have enough time to get to our area before closing so I called Armstrong Nursery on Carmel Mountain RD since they were on the way and they had just what we wanted. We made it there with just a few minutes to spare before closing and they graciously allowed us to come in and find the perfect tree. There were 2 gentlemen working there and they were so helpful and went above and beyond! They did not just serve us but made our Christmas tree purchase a great family experience!!!! We felt blessed!!!

Welcome to Armstrong Garden Centers, Rancho Penasquitos

I have worked in the horticulture industry as well as Armstrong Garden Centers since 2006. I enjoy growing vegetables to share with others and have a great collection of houseplants with a special interest in rare tropicals. What I find most rewarding about my job is being able to work with customers, as well as my team, in creating a positive impact in their lives. In my free time, I most enjoy relaxing in my garden. I'd love to have you stop by to let us help with your gardening needs, or to just enjoy the beauty of our great selection!
