Home improvement stores, department stores, and other big-box chains have all helped us out one way or another. It could be how affordable the prices are, the convenience of getting everything at once, and even the hours the store is open. As convenient as these stores may be for food, furniture, home repair, etc. they may not be the best for your gardening needs, especially live plants. Here’s why you should consider visiting a local nursery like us here at Wojton’s Nursery for all of your gardening needs.

  • Attention to Detail: Live plants are certainly more popular than growing from seeds. Many gardeners love planting live flowers they can buy from the store. They can see the colors of the plants, and they don’t have to worry about the, somewhat, temperamental phase of seedlings. Unfortunately, larger stores don’t give their live plants nearly as much attention as they should. They need regular watering and maintenance that bigger stores can’t always give. Nurseries are set up to make sure every live flower can receive the proper care until it goes home with a customer.
Local Nursery vs Big-Box Chains: What You Need To Know 1
  • Pricing: Big-box stores will lure you in because of their prices. In some cases, yes their prices can be less expensive. However, what you don’t realize is that because the flowers don’t get nearly as much attention as they should, they’re not as healthy. You may notice that those flowers need a lot of extra TLC when you plant them in your garden.
  • Quality over Quantity: Our staff is trained to take care of several species of flowers native to this area. Because of that, our nursery has several varieties and colors of live flowers to choose from. Box chain stores tend to have a large number of flowers, but there won’t be much variety.
