It’s here! Our annual Spring Open House will be this Saturday, April 22nd from 11AM to 3PM, officially marking the beginning of spring here at Quality Gardens and two years in business for Bloom Cafe. Browse our wide variety of native plants, blooming annuals in hanging baskets, containers, and flats, and beautiful indoor/outdoor decor and pottery. Plus, receive a free plant with every greenhouse purchase and enter a raffle for a chance to win any tree under $100.
Our greenhouse and Glass House are looking tropical! Many varieties and sizes of tropical plants are available, from flowering shrubs and trees like Hibiscus, Duranta, Gardenia, and Oleander, to foliage and accent plants like Croton, Eugenia topiaries, and Ficus trees. Tropical plants can be grown in the landscape for spring and summer, in containers mixed with other annuals, or as houseplants in a sunny window.
Our perennials are moving outside to the perennial yard, new shipments of nursery stock and indoor/outdoor decor are arriving all the time, and many of our annual flowers are coming into bloom, just in time for our Open House! Don’t forget to come celebrate Earth Day with us this Saturday!
The weather is warming up, and the greenhouses here are even warmer! Every surface available is crowded with growing plants, including a wide selection of Easter flowers ready for your home and garden. Bulb plants like sunny daffodils, colorful tulips, and fragrant hyacinths are opening up all over, surrounded by other blooming plants such as gerber daisies, hydrangeas, chrysanthemums and even more.
Our annuals, perennials, and nursery stock are putting on growth by the day, plus there are plenty of new decor arrivals in the Glass House, so now is an excellent time to swing by and check it out!
We will be open on Easter Sunday from 10am to 2pm, but Bloom Cafe will be closed for the day. Also, Earth Day and our Spring Open House are both coming up next Saturday, April 22nd!
As the weather outside starts to feel more like spring, our greenhouses and nursery are beginning to come alive. From Easter flowers to cold weather crops to blooming shrubs and trees to new decor, pottery, and furniture for both inside and outside the home, Quality Gardens is full to the brim and more is always arriving!
The growers here are hard at work preparing our large selection of spring and summer plants, including beautiful hanging baskets, containers, various annuals, and quart and gallon perennials for your landscape. New growth seems to appear overnight! It won’t be long now before the weather is warm enough to kick off the gardening season.
We’re gearing up for our Spring Open House! Stop by on Saturday, April 22nd from 11AM to 3PM to celebrate spring with us and two years in business for Bloom Cafe. Grab a bite to eat or a coffee and browse our wide selection of nursery stock, perennials, annuals, indoor/outdoor decor, and more!
The 2017 seeds have arrived! We have cool kits for growing your own Sprouts and Micro-Greens along with a huge selection of non-GMO vegetable and flower seeds from Botanical Interests. Come check it out!
New Indoor/Outdoor decor is arriving daily in the Glass House. And Alliy and her crew are hard at work starting all the seeds and plants for Easter and spring.
Spring is in the air (can’t you smell it??) and things are getting into full swing at Quality Gardens!
Stop in, grab a Lavender-Vanilla Latte from Bloom Cafe, and come stroll our greenhouses to get your spring juices flowing!!
Now that the holidays are over and the decorations are put away for another year, this time of year can feel particularly dreary, especially on one of our gray western Pennsylvania days.
For a quick pick-me-up, think about brightening your interiors with some colorful houseplants. We have a large selection of flowering Cyclamen, Gold Ginger, Anthurium, and Streptocarpella, in addition to many houseplants with colorful foliage. Just the thing to bring some color into your home!
Houseplants will infuse your home with some much needed life and they will also help clean the air, which can get stuffy and polluted in the winter. A favorite of Tom’s is the Dieffenbachia. It is a common large-leafed plant, but there are some striking new hybrids available now. This is a low-maintenance variety—it does not require direct light, just a bright room, and it only needs moderate water.
We also have a large selection of those very cool Fiddle-leaf Figs trees, in various shapes and sizes. The “It” plant of today, the lush Fiddle Leaf Fig is the one of the most popular looks for adding warmth to any style room. They’re not hard to care for, but prefer certain conditions to thrive: bright, indirect light; no drafts; consistent, but not too much water. We’ll be glad to answer any questions you have about their on-going care.

Another very interesting and easy-care houseplant is the Rubber plant. We have a couple of different varieties, my favorite being the Tri-color. Its mix of cream, red, and green foliage looks stunning on its own or in a mixed container with creeping plants.
These are just a couple of our favorites. We have many varieties of Cacti, Succulents, Philodendrons, Pothos, Hoya, Citrus Trees, Palms, and lots more. If you’re looking to add some green into your home or would just like to breathe some tropical air, come and explore our greenhouse—we are open all year long!
