Our Mission

Great Garden Plants believes that gardening is for everybody. That’s why we offer over everything from succulents to roses to arborvitaes for hedges to hydrangeas. We celebrate the joy that plants bring to our lives every day. And we do it at a price that’s easy on your wallet.

We do what we do here at Great Garden Plants because we want to help gardeners of every skill level find joy and beauty in the garden.

We’ve been around since 2008. In February 2017, we launched a new website.  In January 2019, founder Mary Walters retired and Great Garden Plants was purchased by Jeremy Deppe. Our team is more committed than ever to providing you beautiful, vigorous plants at a great price, as well as the inspiration and information to keep you planting.

Our Product

Our greenhouses are located in beautiful west Michigan.  At GreatGardenPlants.com, we grow hundreds of sun perennials, shade perennials, shrubs, groundcovers, roses, hedge plants and so much more.  You’ll find exciting new varieties as well as tried and true garden classics.

Our Plant Sizes

Many mail order companies ship out garden plants that are very small & often make substitutions when they run out.

However, our pot sizes are some of the most robust in the online nursery business.  We offer a variety of pot sizes – 3″ size for the biggest value, robust one quart for most of our perennials, large one-quarts or true one-gallon for most of our shrubs, and 1 gallon for most of our trees and hedging plants. We keep our plants nicely trimmed – which encourages more branching and a strong, healthy root system while providing safe shipping and rapid establishment in your garden. All of our products are raised by professional growers who love plants as much as you do!

Peace of Mind

We believe in what we do and sell and we work hard to bring you the best plants in the business. We back our product with our 100% Risk Free Guarantee.
