Originally established in 1939 as “Lukens & Rhoads” by Walter Rhoads and William Lukens, we began as a roadside stand selling tomatoes in North Wales, Pennsylvania. The business flourished leading to an eventual expansion in 1963, which included a nursery, bedding plants, and a retail area, creating a smaller version of what our store is today. In 1969, Lukens passed away, and Rhoads soon sought the help of his family to keep the business running. His sons, Tom and Dave, began working at the company, and in 1974 took over as President and Vice President of what then became known as The Rhoads Garden, Inc. Growth continued in 1976 with the addition of a floral department, and in 1978 with the beginnings of our landscape design/build services. In 1985, the Rhoads brothers purchased a farm in Worcester, PA to begin propagation of large trees, nursery stock, and annual crops. By 1987, another major expansion to the retail property was necessary to include a full-scale garden center, gift shop, floral department, foliage house, retail greenhouse and nursery. In 1992, Walter Rhoads passed away leaving behind his legacy of hard work, determination, excellence in customer service, and a love of plants. The third generation of Rhoads family members joined the business throughout the early 2000’s in various departments. In 2007, the company completed its third renovation project, nearly doubling the size of the floral and gift shops to the size they are today. 2014 marked the Rhoads Garden’s 75th anniversary. As co-founder Walter Rhoads said, “Our customers are the lifeblood of our business.” With that in mind, we are committed to offering only the highest quality floral arrangements, gifts, plants and trees. The exemplary customer service provided by our dedicated staff will assure you a pleasant and professional experience. We pride ourselves in “going the extra mile.” So come take a walk through the Rhoads Garden, and experience our beauty for yourself. Thanks for 75 years and here’s to growing each and every day.

Standing on an acre of land, the oldest of Chelsea’s nurseries occupies a site used for hundreds of years as a thriving garden, says Dorothy. “Today it offers a calm and slightly quirky green oasis at the end of the bustling King’s Road in London. Pick your way through the eclectic mix of plants and pots artfully arranged around the meandering pathways, making it more like a visit to a secret garden than a walk through a garden centre. Indoor and outdoor plants fight for space with garden statuary, planters, benches and even the odd gazebo.”

“A garden shop has recently opened at Rowallane, which has got to be great news given that this is a plantsman’s garden,” says Victoria. “It was created by the Rev John Moore in the 1860s and is now run by the National Trust. It is particularly famous for its blue Himalayan poppies, the Victorian walled garden and the rock garden wood.

“A place that welcomes both me and my pooch – perfect,” says Dorothy. “Emcy’s is a rare find: a large, independent garden centre with every conceivable plant and garden accoutrement; staff who go out of their way to make your visit a memorable one; and most importantly, not happy with the price? They’re ready to listen to reasonable offers.” The grow your own page on its website offering advice and gardening tips is worth keeping an eye on for sensible, monthly updates.

As the largest historic botanic garden in Cornwall, the privately owned Tregothnan Estate, although not strictly a garden centre, deserves a mention, says Dorothy. “Its range of plants, many of which are rare, is grown on the estate and is continuously being extended to meet the demand for locally grown, high quality British plants and there is expert advice and guidance over the phone or by email.” Visit by appointment only.
