Annuals & Vegetables

The Mad River Garden Center offers a huge selection of annuals and vegetable starts grown locally in Vermont and New England. They are housed in our greenhouse protected from the elements. av006We feature annuals from Proven Winners grown by Pleasant View Gardens and Large Quart Selections from D.S. Cole Growers, as well as Claussen’s Greenhouse in Colchester, Vermont.  Riverberry Farm, an organic farm in Fairfax, Vermont, is the source for our organic vegetable starts, and Red Wagon Plants in Hinesburg, Vermont provides us with our organic herb selection.

av012For those that like to get a jump start on spring, we offer starter plant kits, eco-friendly pots, seed trays, grow lights, heat pads and locally produced organic starting mixes.

We offer a wide selection of popular and unique annuals and tropical foliage.  We are always on the lookout for varieties that will add interest to your garden or patio from the popular tried and true to the exotic statement piece.  av008-2We have what you need for the fillers, spillers, and thrillers.  Call us if you are interested in custom planters.  We LOVE to be creative!!!

Later in the season the Mad River Garden Center nursery is alive with hardy mums, Fall grasses, handsome ornamentals, cornstalks, straw bales, and hardy Fall annuals. Our store is brimming with colorful pots, soils, feeding products and all the wonderful items you will need to bring in those non-hardy plants that you wish to keep.
