Sadly, one must travel to a different 'Bury to find a garden center with a very well rounded selection of plants and accessories - The Garden in Woodbury is a personal favorite - or break-the-bank Hollandia in Bethel. Krikits is the only one in town that comes close. Wish someone would make a go again of the property across from Sacred Heart; with it's prime location, in the right hands it has great bones for what could again be a great place for a garden center...

The Greenhouse (Southbury Training School) great selection and knowledgable staff - not to mention the helpful residents of Southbury Training School who help you carry out your stuff. 2nd choice is kmart Garden Center.

Jennifer, thank you for your comment. Both of the businesses you mentioned have now been added to the poll.

I knew the previous garden center tenant of the exit 14 property. The owner won't put in permanent plumbing, which makes it tough to run a business and do your job. It is too bad because a garden center was a nice business for that corner-not too glossy or commercial-set a nice tone for entering the town. I suppose if it stays unoccupied, that's ok too.

The Garden has the best variety in Woodbury. I also think that Shakespeare's Garden in Newtown is worth one visit. Last year I lucked out in K-Mart for $5. a pot. Hollandia is most is special but I can't afford to shop there for everything. The Farmer's Market in Southbury had interesting plants last season but it doesn't open as early as other places. CS

I agree with Sara! Southbury grown for me!
Laura Blersch April 24, 2012 at 06:13 PM
Definitely, Daffodil Hill Growers! All grown right in Southbury and not to mention it is family run.

I do use Daffodil Hill. But for the majority of my plant purchases I go to The Garden in Woodbury. They have a great selection of annuals and perennials. Also, every year I go to the Garden for my Christmas tree. Their prices are reasonable.
