Shopping a Garden Center
North Carolina Garden Centers are a great source of plants and gardening supplies, but they are also a wonderful resource for any home landscaping project. From container gardening to foundation planting, your local garden center can provide you with all that you need.
Right Plant, Right Place
The first step to creating a successful home landscape project is choosing the right plant for the right place. How do you do that? Know your climate, know your soil, and know your plants! In this video, Bryce Lane will walk you through how it’s done.
Keeping a Plant Alive

Don’t have a large outdoor space to work with? Maybe you have a few window boxes, or want to put a contained plant on your front porch? Gardening in containers is the perfect solution for smaller spaces, and can be adapted to fit your environment.
