I went to Merrifield Garden Center and it was fantastic. It took a little bit to track someone to help me out, but once I did, the one young gentlemen helped me pick out all my plants, told me about which ones I needed based on sun/shade, and how to take care of them. I would definitely go back again!

Merrifield Gardens has so many beautiful plants. After visiting the gardens I felt like I had just left a mini vacation because it was so relaxing and peaceful!

Prices are a little high; that's why I wouldn't likely go there without a Groupon (it's also not in convenient location for me).

It was so big I had trouble finding what I needed and someone to help. When I did find people they were very knowledgabl and helpful. I'm going to chalk this up to being the last day of the groupon and a nice one to be outside!

From Our Editors

Each of Merrifield Garden Center’s three locations overflows with thousands of plants throughout the year, encompassing such variety that a reporter for CNN’s Eatocracy claimed “I might as well endorse my paychecks straight to them…because I always want to grow what they've got.” Knowledgeable garden experts, 25 of whom have been with Merrifield for 25 years or more, guide customers through row upon row of flowers, trees, shrubs, and other plants, or help them sort through an extensive selection of bulbs and seeds. Visitors may also bump into the founders themselves, or their children and other family members, 38 of whom still work at the thriving business that started 40 years ago. Merrifield doesn’t just proliferate plants, however; amenities such as cafes in Gainesville and Merrifield and a dog park in Gainesville make each garden center into a leisure destination as well. Three of its garden gurus run an hourlong TV show that's been going for more than two decades, and other staff publish gardening advice on the website and Facebook. The staff also work to protect the environment with a variety of eco-friendly initiatives. Besides stocking native plants and water-saving devices for their customers, they also compost more than 20,000 tons of soil and 25,000 cubic yards of brush left over from their comprehensive landscaping services every year. The Gainesville location also gathers old concrete, metal appliances, and rusted Optimus Primes for recycling free of charge.
