 Perennial Favorites Garden Center
Perennial Favorites Garden Center is a very small, locally owned garden center.  Our goal is to make gardening fun for all ages and stages of life.

No Clue?  We can help you chose a plant or design and plant your garden.  
If it's a small project, we can handle it.  If it's bigger, we'll make you a recommendation of trustworthy landscapers.

No yard?  We have beautiful container gardens for your patio, deck, or balcony.  We'll help you make your own, or we can make them for you.  
(We also deliver.)

No time?  We have lots of easy care plants for both indoors and out.

Kinda stiff and sore?  We have raised bed kits and ergonomic tools that will help keep gardening fun.

Looking for something different?  We have original art and crafts by local artists and craftspeople.

Our goal is also to be  good public citizens of our community.  We are committed to treating our employees, suppliers, and customers fairly and honestly.  We do not sell invasive plants and work hard to minimize our use of herbicides and pesticides.

Perennial Favorites Garden Center has been a drop-off site for a weekly box of fresh, homegrown, certified organic produce for the last two and a half years.  Our members have been receiving produce at wholesale prices, all grown at Honey Brook Organic Farm in Pennington, New Jersey.  Our third year membership is 36 members who enjoy this wonderful local produce. There are four share sizes available.  (Deluxe, Premium, Basic, and Individual) Stop by the Garden Center or contact the Farm to join. Delivery of fresh produce began in early May this year and will continue into October.

    Our eight part-time associates on the staff come to the garden center with a wide variety of skills, talents, careers, and lifetime achievements.  Six of our staff members have taught in schools or for after school programs.  Three staff members have completed Anchor House's 500 mile Bike Ride several times to raise funds for the organization.  We have a lawyer and a full-time student, and several staff members who are considered "retired", but who have more than one part-time job.  Our staff leans towards the artistic side with interests in crafts, drawing, painting, music, and writing of both prose and poetry.  Many enjoy lots of time outdoors walking, hiking, camping, swimming, and fishing.  Of course, all of our staff enjoy time in the garden communing with nature.
