Welcome to the Great Big Greenhouse

Welcome to the Great Big Greenhouse!

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.

What’s In Store

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. 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 most beautiful selection of shrubs and trees in central Virginia. We have collections of Japanese maples, conifers, hydrangeas, as well as extensive collections of daylilies, hostas, and other perennials. And that’s not all! We have plants for sun, shade, fragrance, as well as for butterflies, birds, and other pollinators. Our native plant selection ranges from hard to find varieties of exotics to the basics. We have it all, including Virginia certified horticulturists to help you make your selections.
