We are not able to ship plants
Our garden center offerings are going to look a bit different in 2024. Due to having a high school graduate, we are scaling back and sticking to our roots. RGF garden center started with tried and true perennials, and that will be our focus again in 2024! We will not be offering annuals, veggie starts or herbs. We will have a limited selection of succulents. What we will have it our usual selection of TRIED AND TRUE Perennials, shrubs and vines.
Availability may be limited on some perennial varieties and prices are subject to change without notice. Plan to shop early for the best selection!
Landscape Inspiration Designs
For best results with new plantings, we recommend:
Check your plants daily for water while they are still in their pots and for the first two weeks after planting.
If soil is moist, wait a day and check again.
If soil is dry, water until moist and check again the next day.
The more foliage a plant has, the more water they will require. It is important to check newly planted shrubs daily.
A thin layer of wood mulch will help with water retention. Just be careful not to smother the plant with it.
Most perennials once established do not require fertilization, but plant food can be used according to the directions on the box.
