What makes your garden center Revolutionary?
We are extensively involved in our community and have our name and efforts out there constantly. At different times we host functions primarily for non-profits. We, for no charge, provide space for the Visual Arts Guild, the Realtors, the Dolphin House, FFA, Astra, Altrusa, the teacher awards and more.
Artisians are also on hand each weekend to display and expose their talents. We have a seat on several community boards and attend weekly forums to discuss issues related to our economy, city plans, city and county issues and ways to bring our community together. We loan out plant and decorative product to help decorate local events on at least a weekly basis.
As far as product is concerned we conduct extensive research to discover trends in customer needs and wants. We currently focus on trends such as green products, organics and products made in the USA. We do alot of our own growing and offer a very popular custom hanging basket program for our customers. They order the basket to their liking in the fall and pick up the finished product in May.
