Opening TBD

Opening TBD

We're working on alternate business models for when we reopen. Chances are good right now it will be an online/delivery model alone. We will keep you informed on our Facebook page. Bud does a Facebook Live every Sunday night at 7:30p. Stay safe. Say, "I love you". Often. We are so grateful to be in this community. We miss you. Gardening will not cease. We're all simply taking a pause. Our wish for you is that with this time comes a great opportunity to slow down, love your friends and family, and dream big for brighter days to come. They will come. Peace!
Project Party Calendar

Project Party Calendar

We will update you on spring project party reschedules once we know more about the timeline of when we will be able to reopen.

For those of you who have pre-purchased Project Party tickets you have three options:

1. Refund.
  • We understand that you may need to divert those funds. No worries if you need to take advantage of option 1. Simply email us with your order number. If you do not know your order number just tell us what party and we’ll figure it out.
  • 2. Treat the purchase as a gift certificate to be used any time.
  • We understand how things are changing and, so too, might your preferences.
  • 3. Reschedule for any time either through our to be determined reschedule dates or as a private party of your own on whatever date you wish.

    We are offering those options in an effort to conserve or spread out the likely cashflow hit we will be undergoing since we have yet to open for the season. It is quite an uncertain time, to say the least. I hope this helps.

    Your Event!

    Big or small - the Distinctive Gardens Pavilion is a great location for your upcoming event.



    We love gardening, no two ways around it.
    We love gardeners.
    They are the coolest, most open-minded people around.
    We feel lucky doing a job we love.
    We opened this garden center
    because it's a fantastic way
    to meet like-minded people,
    growing plants, friendships, community,
    one seed at a time.
