Custom Plant Arrangements

To try to keep ahead of our numerous spring annual orders, we are now taking pre-orders for spring 2020. 

For those who are unaware of our custom planting service, here's what it's all about! During our peak season (April-June), many customers come in looking for advice on what plants they should put into their containers/window boxes. Many bring in their own containers, while others like to pick out new ones. Our expert greenhouse staff will first determine the type of light the container will get throughout the day, any particular color scheme the customer desires, any specific theme they are looking for (formal, tropical, patriotic, butterfly/hummingbird) and a budget. We then would normally walk around the greenhouse showing you various plants that we think would work best for your container. We are happy to send pictures of our recommendations so we can perform this service remotely!

Please note that not all containers have to be annuals. Many customers like using multi functional plants, such as herbs, perennials, or insect repelling plants in combination with annuals. We can create custom plant arrangements with houseplants, succulents, cactus, herbs, perennials, bulbs, dwarf confiers, annuals, fairy garden accessories and so much more! 

We are taking orders in advance to try to accommodate all of our customers who have been committed to this service for years. Our outside nursery is open and our inside greenhouse is open for a limited number of customers on a first-come, first-served basis. Looking at our pre-planted pots and urns can be a great source of ideas. If you still don't find what your looking for, Instagram and Pinterest are great resources for finding a picture of a container plant that fits your style. If you find a picture you like, you can always email us at info@gardenbarn.com and we will do our best to replicate it. 

Pricing for custom plant arrangements is based on how much soil is used in the container, the cost of the container (no cost if your bringing in your own), the cost of the plants, and labor. 

We normally do not hold customers custom container orders for an extended period of time but from now until May 11th we will keep all orders in the greenhouse and care for them until they are ready to be picked up or delivered.to you. If you are interested in dropping off your containers/window boxes, give us a call to arrange a date for drop off and to go over what plants would suit your container best and your budget.  If you do not feel comfortable leaving your home, for a small delivery fee, we will come to you! Prior to pickup of your pots, we will need a photo with dimensions (diameter and depth) to accurately give you a price for this service. 

We hope that you are all staying safe and that you're enjoying the opportunity this pause gives us to enjoy nature.
