Garden Center


We’re excited to see our Christmas trees tagged on the farm and all of the wild flowers still growing between the trees! This year we’re bringing you Pennsylvania grown Fraser Firs, Turkish Firs, Nordmann Firs and Douglas Firs grown on a small family farm in Carbon County, Pa.

You have more choices of places to buy your tree these days in our neighborhood. When you choose to buy from Greensgrow, you are investing in the long term health of our urban farm and habitat, you are investing in our youth farm education, you are investing in the legacy of this meaningful greenspace.

Visit our garden centers where you’ll find nearly everything you need to create and maintain a city garden. Our garden centers specialize in plants and supplies for small-space growing, but we offer a lot more, too. In the summer you will find everything annuals, perennials, container plantings, drought tolerant herbs, ornamental grasses, and sedums. We have natives as well as tropicals and hanging baskets for the patio, indoor plants and garden gear. Ask us about water gardens, vertical gardening and green roofs. We stock beneficial insects and odd stuff too–like bog plants!

Having trouble planting your containers or choosing plants for your location? We’re here to help. We offer gardening workshops in the spring and fall – check the Events Calendar and sign up for our newsletter. Join our Greensgrow Gardening Group on facebook to share all about your garden!

Below is just a sampling of what we stock in Fall.

In the fall you will find lots of mums, pansies and violas for fall color, ornamental peppers, cabbage, kale and millet grasses, too. We get miniature evergreens for your window boxes this time of year. Spring-blooming bulbs, paperwhites and garlic are in and ready to plant.
