10 of the Best Nurseries in the Triad

It’s a great time of year to shop at your local plant nurseries! We made a list of 10 of the best nurseries in the 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.
