I LOVE Jim Jenkins Lawn Center!! This place is great! They have an outstanding selection of perennials and trees. Although they do have annuals, the selection is not as vast as other greenhouses that specialize only in flowers. Their plants are healthy and hardy. I often see Jim himself walking about. He is always willing to give advice or answer questions. They have a wide variety of mulch, topsoil, and manure. It is all very reasonably priced. You can get it delivered or pick it up yourself with a truck. The store front is loaded with different items for your gardening needs. Although this may sound silly and tacky to some, one of the best features of this lawn and garden center is the gnome selection. They have so many different kinds of gnomes: big ones, little bity ones, Steeler ones, and other themed gnomes. With my husband being an avid gnome guy, I always can swing by to pick one up as a fun surprise. I did not give this store 5 stars for two reasons: 1. pulling in and out of this place is INSANE! On busy weekends they have a police officer directing traffic, but typically you are on your own. Keep your fingers crossed as you leave. and 2. I think their prices are a bit more expensive than other places. Although they have a lock on the USC market, I think that with some searching you could find other places that are not as pricey. The good news is if you sign up for their email alerts, you can usually get a coupon.

After being frustrated with the knowledge and variety at the Big box stores I decided to see what a local garden shop had to offer. Talk about variety this place has it, the knowledge of the staff is second to non and really made me feel confident in my own gardening abilities since the stuff I have planted is now becoming overgrown I needed the nudge to prune my stuff myself. They also have a vast array of Organic gardening products with staff who know what to recommend for various types of problems you are having with a species of plant. I will say though that their prices are a little bit higher for most of their plants but they appear to be of better quality. The mulch that they offer for delivery is also much more expensive than other places around the region. I will be coming here more for the variety, quality and expertise of the staff.
I didn't know how I would like this place, because it seems small from the street. But I'm glad I went in. The staff is knowledgeable and fun to chat to. They have some neat things inside, almost like an old General Store. All the fun is in the back, though. There is a greenhouse, and lots of variety. They help when you need help, and leave you alone when you wan to just peruse. I will absolutely be back.
Quite a variety of annuals and perinnials. In addition a wide assortment of trees and shrubs, even blueberry bushes. I liked the fact that they had shopping type carts to do your shopping with. They also have a shop with all the gardening supplies you can think of. Prices are also reasonable.
My wife likes to go there to buy her items for gardening. I had to make her a special sign for garden as well Just need some flowers.
Jim Jenkins Lawn & Garden Center is great nursery place; this is amazing, fresh air and beautiful looking.
