My Favorite Independent Garden Center - Guest Post by #rosechat Administrator

My Favorite Independent Garden Center

I am very pleased to tell you about my favorite Independent Garden Center– COUNTRY HARMONY in Brownsburg, IN.
The atmosphere is quaint but also upscale and urban! The location is peacefully tucked away in a corner of natural foliage in the heart of our little town. Very “oasis” like!
No matter the season, you will find beautiful and unique home and garden decor.
During the growing season you simply must come! Their abilities as garden designers and their vast selection of highest quality plants put them way ahead of any other garden center I’ve visited (and that list is long!).
Another area that sets them apart, is the expert care they give to their plants. Whether it is early in the season or at the end of a very long, hot summer, everything looks amazing. Every plant is hand watered on a plant-by-plant basis. Owner Ryan, Designer Brad and the entire staff are very good at what they do! They are knowledgeable and friendly and are willing to literally walk along side you down the rows and rows of beautiful plants to find the perfect ones for your garden or home.
Last year my garden went through a major renovation and one of the first things I did was to contact Country Harmony to bounce around ideas and seek their expertise. The end result was a perfect plan tailored to my taste and garden space. Take a look ….

I can say all of this because I am somewhat of a Country Harmony expert … IF frequent visits count as expertise! I am there every week during the growing season … sometimes multiple times a week. :) My husband likens my trips to Country Harmony as putting another child through college… as least as far as check writing is concerned!
Reminds me of a quote by Mrs. Emily Whaley in her book Mrs. Whaley and Her Charleston Garden
Gardening is not inexpensive. … One successful way to finance your gardening, is to choose carefully whom you marry. A good and generous man is needed. … If you are so lucky to find such a man, you must fully realize and fully appreciate the fact that you have found a “pearl of great price.”
I do and I sure appreciate him. There is no doubt the folks at Country Harmony do too!
