Spring & Summer Season Closeout Sale

Thank you for a wonderful spring! We will be taking a break from June 5th until August 20th during the heat of the summer to spend more time with family, and to get greenhouse repairs and maintenance done during warmer weather. Mums are on our minds now—we reopen August 21st with early season mums!

Hanging Baskets

More Hanging Baskets

If you’d like to pre-order hanging baskets or put in any other requests, please contact Deb by Sept. 1. We grow our own plants and baskets and need to have plugs ordered by Sept. 1 for best selection. We order and grow to capacity, so there will be no space for orders placed after that date.

We are retail growers (as opposed to contract order growers) with limited heated greenhouse space and have determined that it’s in our customers’ best interest to continue to offer a wide selection of plants.

We grow in size lots of 25, 42, 50, 84 and 100 depending upon the popularity of the plant. We suggest that you visit us within the first 10 days of our opening date, April 13, 2018, for the best selection if you need large numbers.

Please have a space at home where you can safely keep your plants until you’re ready to plant as we can no longer “pull and hold" plants due to limited space and labor. We will continue to hold hanging baskets until Mother’s Day if they have been pre-paid.

Let me know if you have a particular basket combo you’d like and we can talk.

We appreciate your friendship and your business and willingness to drive to our “destination greenhouse.”
We are proud to be local growers & owners of an independent nursery!

Friendly, experienced staff + Fresh, healthy, hardy plants = GARDENING SUCCESS!

Groth’s Gardens and Greenhouses features over 1,000 varieties of perennial and annuals. Our goal is to provide our customers with new, unusual and hard-to-find plants. Our five large greenhouses and an outdoor nursery area are loaded with over 25,000 perennials, annuals, hanging gardens, mixed containers, ornamental grasses, hostas and day lilies. In addition to our great selection, we have very competitive prices. We grow the majority of our plants and are proud to be a local, independent greenhouse.

We started our business with huge, high-quality mums, and sell 4000 field-grown fall mums each year, drawing customers from a 200-mile radius. Our mum customers have become loyal spring customers and visit us several times a season from mid-April through October.

Take a leisurely visit around our website, see what we have to offer, and learn some great information about flowers and plants.

Check out our newsletter for a list of our plant offerings, and stop by for a visit. A map to our farm is available, too. Or check out Deb’s blog for all the latest info!

We look forward to seeing you soon!
