About Our Plants:
We carry a variety of plants to suit your interior plantscaping design. Bring foliage succulents with beautiful greenery or long bloomers with bright flowers into your home! Many of our pots fit comfortably on a window sill or desk and can be potted into larger containers for dish gardens or hanging baskets. Our selections are suited for home or office conditions given the right light and water requirements. Think you don’t have a green thumb? A good rule of thumb is to water “deeply and infrequently” and applies especially so for indoor containers. Surrounding ourselves with plants is proven to improve health and well-being.
Trees and Shrubs
We grow one of the largest selections of trees and shrubs in the North Carolina Triad area. Our plants are well suited for this region. We will also consult you on the planting and caring of your trees and shrubs.
Mitchell’s can help you design a custom landscape plan to suit you and your house. Just make an appointment and bring by measurements of the outside of your house, including window height and width; pictures help.
Fall, winter, and early spring is the best time to plant trees and shrubs. The roots get a chance to grow out before it gets too hot and dry in the summer, which is less stressful on the plant.

We have a large selection of vegetable plants. We have cold hardy spring and fall vegetables including broccoli, collards, cabbage, leaf lettuce (red and green), Swiss chard, mesclun mix, Buttercrunch lettuce, Romaine lettuce, Great Lakes head lettuce, spinach, kohlrabi, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower and kale ready for sell in March-April and September-October.
