Join us for a little tour of Swansons Nursery...

Spring & Summer 2016



Come stroll the grounds and enjoy the view! An ever-changing array of plants awaits you at Swansons.  We know it can be challenging to choose with so many great options. That's why we're always here to help you find the right plant for your individual needs, in person or through our Grow with Us program on social media.

Colorful Flowers

The Pavilion, our central greenhouse, is filled with colorful annual flowers and beautiful hanging baskets from spring into fall. This is where you'll find the "thrillers" "fillers" and "spillers" that will help you create gorgeous, long-lasting containers and garden beds. Examples of plants you may find in the Pavilion include geraniums, petunias, cosmos, gerbera daisies, bacopa, lobelia, marigolds, coleus, and sweet potato vine.

Looking for perennial flowers you can enjoy year after year? We have a vast perennial department filled with gorgeous flowers and unique foliage. Many of these plants also attract pollinators to the garden! See our Attacting Pollinators Pinterest board and see photos of our favorite perennials, highlighted right now on Instagram.

The Conservatory: Café & Gift Store

Welcome to a tropical paradise of koi ponds and lush indoor plants. The Conservatory also houses our Gift Shop and Seasons Café. Stop in for coffee or a meal, visit with the koi, and relax. Then browse jewelry, glass art, books, accessories, and more.

Edible Gardening

Our North Greenhouse and edible courtyards are filled with fruit trees, berries, herbs, and vegetables! Whether you're a seasoned vegetable gardener or growing your very first tomato, we can help you find everything you need for a spectacular harvest. Check out our Garden Blog & our NW Gardening Tips pages for more gardening information.


Find the perfect pot. Ceramic, lightweight resin, plastic, terra cotta, cedar, glass... we have options for indoor and outdoor projects from the brightest tones to neutral shades and everything in between. We can help you choose plants for a DIY project or find an amazing planted container, or our Design Department can even create custom arrangements for you!
