If this is your first visit to the greenhouse website or you haven't been out to the greenhouse, let us tell you what we're all about. We grow annuals and perennials seasonally. During our fall season we search for plants and flowers. Winter means it time to start growing and nurturing the plants. Then comes our favorite - seeing all the beautiful plants and our wonderful customers! We open for retail from mid-April to mid-August and are closed to the public the rest of the year.
There are many flower varieties available today. It is fun and exciting to mix and match them in container arrangements and hanging baskets. We search for new and exciting plants, grow them, and then build bold and unique hanging baskets, patio and deck planters, window boxes, and lots of planted garden containers. Many of our containers will leave you hard pressed to find exact matches because often we make only two of each design so you won't find hundreds of the same thing here! Our shade planters give you options for all areas so a stop into the greenhouse will give you so many beautiful choices.
We encourage our customers to bring in their own planters and we will help you fill them with flowers that will thrive in the location that you want to keep it. At Snow Avenue Greenhouse you will see thousands of 4" and 6" annuals, 36ct flats of annuals, geraniums (people talk about these beauties often!), begonias, petunia baskets, and perennials in quarts, 1, 2, and 3 gal containers. We're sure we can fill all your flower needs. We also stock fertilizer, potting soil, pots, and garden art.
If you are looking for something a little different in container gardening, need to grab a selection of perennials, or just need a few geraniums come to Snow Avenue Greenhouse. Our staff of experienced gardeners would love to help you grow successfully.
History and Impact
In 1996 Owner Dave VanDeBurg had a business idea. He started growing plants at home, creating hanging baskets and pots, and selling them from the road right at the original location of what is now the greenhouse. In 2000 the buildings and greenhouses were started and have been added onto through the years.
Dave estimates about 85 employees have been a part of the greenhouse, from teens and young adults needing employment for a few summers, to the many faces our customers love to see year after year. Many friendships have developed with staff and long time customers.
