10 of the Best Garden Centers in the Triad

It’s a great time of year to shop at your local garden centers! We made a list of 10 of the best garden centers in the Piedmont Triad area- why not try them all? This list isn’t in any particular order- we recommend all of these garden centers! So whether you’re near Winston Salem, Greensboro, Kernersville, or further out in Mount Airy, Colfax, or Lexington, there is an excellent garden center near you!

Have you ever wondered what the difference is between a garden center and a plant nursery? Garden centers carry gardening supplies, tools, and decor in addition to plants.  Nurseries typically only carry plants and planting material like dirt, soil amendments and fertilizers. Nurseries tend to have the infrastructure to grow their own plants, whether from seed, propagation, or plugs.
