Use pollinator plants to provide habitat for honeybees, native bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. If you plant them, they will come! Imagine sitting on your patio watching butterflies and hummingbirds flit among your flowers—one of life’s perfect moments!

Native Perennials & Shrubs
Pollinators, the foundation of our food chain, are disappearing at an alarming rate due in large part to loss of habitat. Be part of the solution to this problem by planting the native trees, shrubs, and perennials they need to survive right in your backyard.

Tropicals, Houseplants, Air Plants
We are open year-round and always keep fresh, healthy tropicals and houseplants in stock, including air plants, which need no soil to grow, just the occasional misting. If you breathe air, you need some of these in your home!
Succulents for Indoors & Outdoors
Succulents are all the rage—and for good reason. They are easy care, water stingy, and come in a kaleidoscope of shapes and colors to brighten your home and garden. Indoors, they make great centerpieces and conversation starters. Outdoors, they make no-care/low-care additions to your landscape or patio garden.
Miniatures for Fairy Gardens & Model Railroads
If you enjoy fairy gardens, Ken’s Gardens has all the miniature plants and accessories you need to let your imagination run wild—in a small way. We have dozens of miniature shrubs that can also be used to create live landscapes for outdoor model railroads.
Finishing touches make a good garden a great garden. Finish yours with colorful containers, statuary, garden art, birdbaths, benches, trellises, and more. Our buyers are always finding new, unique, and colorful accents for our gardens and yours.
