What I like Wednesday: Nick’s Garden Center

Spring is in the air (maybe) and for many people that means it’s time to start planning out your flower beds! The thought of plants showing off their shades of green and flowers displaying their magnificent petals makes me feel so excited. I love planning out what plants I want to plant where. When I had a house, I had my yards mapped out and I had an entire spreadsheet of flowers I liked that I wanted to try to incorporate into my yards throughout the years. Nick’s Garden Center was the main place I went for my perennials and gardening supplies (it’s still the place I go for houseplants). I purchased mulch from them. I purchased stepping stones from them. And of course, I purchased plants. This is the place I took Shari to get her some new plants for her apartment. This is the place I took Elisabeth to get her first snake plant. And this is the place I will continue to go.

Their plant selection is possibly the best I’ve seen. They offer trees, bushes, perennials, and annuals. They have so many species, it’s incredible. For those with limited outdoor space, they offer those lovely tropical house plants we all love. Their plants are great quality, they clearly care and watch over all of them. Their prices are reasonable too (heads up though: plants are expensive, so “reasonable” doesn’t mean “cheap”). Their staff is knowledgeable and friendly. As the warm season comes to an end, they usually have sales on perennials, which is awesome, because you can still plant perennials through August and September so why not fill your yard a tiny bit more before the season ends?

They also offer an incredible selection of materials – mulches, rock, and stepping stones. I imagine that landscape companies purchase their supplies from Nick’s. They delivered a truckload of mulch to my house back in the day and I purchased a bunch of gorgeous stepping stones for that backyard too. If I ever own a home again, I will definitely be visiting Nick’s for all my yard needs.

Nick’s doesn’t stop there though. They also have fresh produce in the warmer months and much of it comes from Colorado farms. I’ve gotten peaches from them multiple times. They have a variety of events throughout the year including a nicely done fall festival type thing where they sell as many pumpkins as you can imagine. You can get kettle corn and roasted peppers while you’re at it. If I’m remembering correctly they also do stuff around Christmas too.

I only have good things to say about this place so I hope that the next time you’re on the lookout for a plant (and who isn’t on the lookout for more plants?) that you’ll consider making a stop at Nick’s.
