Southwest Gardener: Make Your Garden Feel Like Home

After more than two decades in business we’ve decided to retire, and Southwest Gardener will retire with us.
Our last day open will be February 22, 2020. 
The good news is we will continue to work with Gregory Ware to let you know of his gardening classes and plants sales. We’ll also keep a curated selection of locally made garden goodies on the website so you can still buy great gifts.
So stay tuned, visit the site regularly and if you get our emails, watch for updates.
Thank you for your friendship and support – you are an amazing community!
