Garden Center

The Great Big Greenhouse & Nursery is a family owned retail garden center serving the greater Richmond, Virginia Metropolitan area, committed to providing a superior selection of quality plants, plant products and plant services at value prices. We opened our doors in 1976, on three acres in the south part of Richmond. In 2001, we relocated to the Huguenot Village Shopping Center, just 5 miles west of our original site.

Whether you like to plant, or just like plants, there’s plenty for you at The Great Big Greenhouse & Nursery. We offer tropical plants in sizes from 3″ pots to 15 foot specimens. Indoor flowering and foliage plants for home and office are available, as well as exotic blooming summer patio plants, bonsai, orchids, cacti, and unusual species for collectors. Our popular gift baskets of potted bloomers and greenery, mossed and bowed, are perfect for birthdays, anniversaries, remembrances or other occasions.

Our three-and-one-half-acre nursery offers the finest selection of shrubs and trees in central Virginia. Our collections of Japanese maples, conifers, hydrangeas, daylilies and hostas are extensive. And that’s not all. We have plants for sun, shade, fragrance, butterflies and birds, natives to exotics-from unusual or had to find varieties to the basics. We have it all, including Virginia certified horticulturists to help you make you selections.

Shop our lawn and garden department for tools, fertilizers, soils and mulches, pond supplies, and other gardening accessories. Hundreds of fall and spring bulb varieties are available seasonally, along with grass seed, vegetable, herb, and flower seeds.

You will find gifts galore-for gardeners and non-garderners-including garden ornaments, statuary and fountains, ceramic, brass, and wicker containers, bird feeders, wind chimes, candles, flags, ceramic collectables, inddor/outdoor furniture and more. We offer Gift Cards in any amount. Let our silk department create a unique dried or silk flower arrangement to suit any occasion or need. We carry everything you need to make your own wreaths or bouquets, from floral supplies to containers and ribbon.

Our friendly and knowledgeable staff is always available to answer your gardening questions! Stop by today and “take home a friend from The Great Big Greenhouse…”
