Easy to maneuver rows, filled with tightly packed tables that boast the Uncle John’s brand of positively glorious blooms, command no less than a half-day to dlve into. Artfully displayed among the greenhouse fare are the signature pottery lines that Marcia has included. “We carry Guy Wolfe Pottery as well as garden accents from the George Carruth studios,” she offers.

 

But it’s the staff that Jeff and Marcia are quick to elevate. “We have the most incredible and knowledgeable employees,” he says. “It’s a wonderful environment to spend your time in.”

 

Lest you think a trip to Uncle John’s Plant Farm is one best made in spring, you should also know that it’s during the winter months the store and adjacent greenhouse shine the brightest.

 

“We really go all out for Christmas,” Marcia smiles. “Every tree we decorate is unique, using the newest home decor colors. The poinsettias we grow will be ready for sale and unique gift items for the Holidays will fill the shop.”

 

Uncle John’s also employs a professional landscape designer who can design and install the garden of your dreams. As a certified Belgard dealer, they make it practically effortless to complete your garden space with pavers and patio stones.
