Whether you already know what you need or you’re looking for a place to start, our staff will walk you through the process.
Plants you can Trust – Buy from the Grower
We grow most of our plants on our 150-acre property. Any plants that are not grown here are locally sourced, so you know that you are getting a quality product with every purchase. Each plant is specifically chosen for better blooms, winter hardiness, and less maintenance.
Abell Nursery is a Proven Winners Certified Garden Center. No more paying out the wazoo for those pretty white pots; we are constantly researching new varieties of our favorite shrubs to bring more success and a fresh look to your landscape. You can also find your other favorite brands like the Encore Azalea line, First Additions, and the Endless Summer Hydrangea collection. We are even stocking Proven Winner Perennials and Annuals!
Outside of our winter hardy trees, shrubs, and perennials, we also stock the best Annuals and Tropicals. These are most popular in the Spring and Summer to add a bright pop of color wherever you need it. We stock hundreds of Hanging Baskets, Wave Petunias, Combination Planters, Braided Trees, and Annual Accents each Spring. Come in and select top notch annuals for your home or bring your pots to us! Pick out the plants you would like and let our Greenhouse staff create the combination planter of your dreams. Add a touch of unique beauty without getting your hands dirty!
More than Just Plants
Abell Nursery is your one-stop-shop for all your landscape materials. Outside of our excellent plant selection we carry a long list of other items your landscape may require. Below are some items that you should consider:
- Gloves and Tools
- Garden Décor and Outdoor Furniture
- Fountains and Water Features
- Birdbaths, Bird Feeders, and Birdhouses
- Wind Chimes and Eye-catchers
- Gazing Balls and Stands
- Herbicides, Insecticides, and Fungicides including Ferti-Lome and Bonide Products
- Fertilizers, Organic Options
Most people only go to their Garden Center a few times in the Spring or Summer when they’re spending the most time outside. We’re happy to help you then, but don’t forget about the other seasons! We stock gorgeous Mums, Asters, and other Fall Accents in the late summer/early Fall to keep your landscape fresh and colorful when big spring/summer bloomers start to fizzle out. Once the frost starts to hit and the temperature drops we start cutting our Locally grown Christmas Trees and stocking the Garden Center with Poinsettias, hand-made wreaths, and other excellent gifts.
The Design Process, You’re in Good Hands
Don’t worry if you aren’t sure what to do with your landscape, you’re not alone. Abell Nursery is proud to staff Landscape Architects that can meet you at your property and help you with any scale project. Consultations start at just $50 and are meant for small projects or remediation. Small projects include single beds, general maintenance quotes, drainage issues, etc. Larger scale projects that require multiple sections and typically span multiple visits are better suited for our Master Landscape design which starts at just $250.
