On May 20th, my office, Fonville Morisey Lochmere office, will hold our Client Appreciation Spring Festival at Fairview Garden Center (on Holly Springs Rd, South of Cary in Raleigh). Come join me from 2 – 4 pm for light refreshments, a great plant selection for gardens and fun planting activity for children. Stop by Fairview that afternoon, as well as some of the great plant nurseries in the area (listed below) now that Spring is finally here!
Fairview, in the area for 40 years, has 62,000 square feet of greenhouse space and several more acres of all sorts of plants, shrubs, trees and more. Located in between Cary and Holly Springs in Raleigh, it’s a great place if you like to garden or need a great gift.
Located in Historic Seaboard Railroad Station in Downtown Raleigh, Logan’s is amazing. The 55 year-old store has won several awards including INDY’s “Best in the Triangle” and Garden Center Magazine’s “Top 100 Garden Centers of America.” While you’re shopping for new foliage or gifts stop in at the shop’s delicious cafe. I moved to the area with my parents in 1975, next door to the Logan’s. I have fond memories of my dad and Mr. Logan talking at the backyard fence…wonderful family, wonderful gardeners!
Located in West Durham, Durham Garden Center has a great selection of plants and knowledgeable people. Recently renovated, the center itself is a relaxing and wonderful place to find exactly what you’re looking for or something you had no idea you needed. DGC also hosts classes and other gardening related events.
Other great area places to get plants:
The NC Farmer’s Market, Raleigh (plants and so much more)
Niche Gardens, Chapel Hill (with art in the garden)
The Garden Hut, Fuquay Varina
Garden Supply Company, Cary
Campbell Road Nursery, Raleigh
Homewood Nursery, North Raleigh
Plants Delight Nursery (native, rare & unique plants; great catalog, open occasionally to the public)
Thanks for reading and I hope to see you at Spring Fest!
