Plants, Flowers & Vegetables in New Jersey

There are a number of reasons to grow your own plants and flowers.

A blend of blooms in your front yard can add color to your property. They deter pests and help pollinators, which in turn help more things grow.

And what would you rather eat? A salad that came pre-packaged from the grocery store, or one made with vegetables plucked fresh from your own garden? A mass-produced pie, or one made from your very own fruit tree?

Growing things makes us feel better, about ourselves and the world around us. It reminds us that we’re all connected, and Mendham Garden Center is proud to help its customers make that connection.

Flowers, Shrubs & Trees in New Jersey

We offer a large variety of plants at our three New Jersey garden centers. To begin with, there are our deer resistant shrubs, along with beautiful blooming shrubs, rhododendrons, azaleas, holly, boxwood, viburnum and more.

You’ll also find our yards filled with juicy blueberry, raspberry and blackberry plants, as well as a number of fruit-bearing trees, such as apple, apricot, cherry, peach and pear.

In addition to our shrubs, trees and berry plants, we have a large selection of annuals, which you plant in the spring and will last until first frost. These plants do well in the sun and the shade, and include varieties that are less desirable to our local deer population.

We also carry a wide selection of perennials, those plants which come back year after year. We can order annuals and perennials on a weekly basis, which means that special orders are easy to handle. We try to use local growers for better quality, and use plants grown on the east coast – as opposed to out west – so that they can adapt better to local growing conditions.

Mendham Garden Center is also your source for palms, hibiscus, mandevilla and other tropical plants.
