For those with or without green thumbs, Armstrong Garden Center is an oasis for all things green and growing that enables customers to create the landscape of their dreams. The company’s roots go back to 1889 when John Armstrong started growing eucalyptus trees and olive trees in Southern California. In the Rancho Penasquito’s center, the educated and friendly staff makes the experience of trying to decide whether to plant low water perennials or blossoming apple trees a pleasure. Beyond being a place to purchase plants, pots, trellises, trees, fountains and fertilizer, Armstrong’s offers home visits and landscaping services, free garden classes, planting guides and more.
