February 15th, 2018 by

Whether you have a green thumb or you’re just looking to grow fresh produce, flowers, or increase your home’s value through landscaping, Duluth and the surrounding area has plenty of nurseries to make your garden bountiful and beautiful. While you could shop at the big-box stores, these locally owned businesses provide unmatched customer service and an unbeatable variety of plants, fertilizer, and other goods. Here are just a few of the best.

Woody’s Wholesale Nursery

With 13 acres and 40 greenhouses of plants, shrubs, flowers, and other vegetation, Woody’s Wholesale Nursery is Duluth’s top stop for plants and gardening accessories. This locally owned store has been in operation for over 40 years, giving the staff and business as a whole the necessary experience to help you find just what you need no matter what you’re trying to grow.

Most of the inventory centers around trees, shrubs, and other plants native to the South, so you shouldn’t have any trouble growing the items once they’re transplanted into your home garden. If you’re looking to jazz up your garden, it also has birdbaths, planters, tables, benches, and fountains. If this doesn’t make your garden professional quality, nothing else will.

Garden Hood

Newbies to gardening will find a friend at Atlanta’s Garden Hood. It has all the supplies you need to get your garden growing, but the specialty is helping you keep it going with classes, advice, and workshops. Even if you’ve already had success planting, these workshops help you learn the basics of pruning, fertilization, and what plants help to accentuate your main plants.

When you need supplies, Garden Hood has some of the top organic and growing products in the area. Along with soils and fertilizer, it also stocks the extras such as worm castings, humus, manure, and specialty soils to help acid-loving plants such as blueberries or hydrangeas. If you’re still in the dark about what to do, don’t worry. The helpful staff is always there to lend advice or guidance.

The Kinsey Family Farm

When you want your garden to look its best, you need plants that cater to each of the four seasons. That’s just what you’ll find at the Kinsey Family Farm. Throughout the year, the offerings change, so you’ll never find the same thing twice. With this massive, rotating selection, you can design your garden to increase privacy, attract wildlife, or make your backyard a more soothing, relaxing place to unwind.

Each year, the nursery produces about 4,000 trees across the main farm and two other satellite locations. Flowering trees, conifers, and evergreens are all available to you ready to drop in the ground. With careful maintenance and the right products, your garden will look every bit as good as their farm.

Once you’ve gathered the right supplies, it’s time to dig in and create a garden that’s a source of pride. Not only will you get delicious, fresh vegetables and a colorful floral backdrop, but you’ll also have something that’s a reflection of your hard work and dedication. There’s nothing more satisfying than that.
