Sweet store, kind stuff. CHECK OUR THEIR AMAZING NATIVE PLANTS OUT BACK!!! Omg! I was so overwhelmed and pleased to see the ROWS of native plants! Get yourself a native pollinator and make all the bees and birds and butterflies in your yard happy this spring and summer. Thank you! (Also they have an entire tent of soil selections I still need to check out! Durham Garden Center is WAY MORE than a small shop with fancy houseplants!)

We had the Durham Garden Center assist us with outfitting our offices with plants and pots. They were super helpful in both selecting the plants and getting them potted/delivered. Highly recommend them!

Great shop- staff is always friendly and helpful. All of the indoor plants are marked with a paw print to indicate pet-safe! Very nice pots with better prices than big chain stores. Extensive outdoor landscaping plants and trees, too!

Very helpful and knowledgeable. Asked for recommendations for an indoor plant and the first question was if I needed it to be pet safe. My main concern 🙂

Fantastic selection of plants and shrubs indoors and out. Well curated and organized by shade requirement, type (perennials, annuals, and such), all suitable for landscaping or your garden. A store in front has loads of gifts, accessories and potted plants ready to stage at home.

I want to like this place a bit more. Maybe ive just been here at off times of the year but I do love their aesthetic. Their entryway partial sun canopy is decorated nicely, and they had a drcent selection out back, but many of yhe plants looked pretty stressed (annuals/fruit/veg). Some plants can be a tad pricey.

Excellent selection. Extremely knowledgeable. Took a lot of time explaining options, what would and what wouldn't work/fit my specific gardening needs. Highly recommend, definitely worth the trip!

This plant nursery and the staff are awesome! We walked in knowing very little about plants and walked out learning so much more. The prices were affordable and the service was great. We bought our 1st house plant and we will be back!

A little gem hidden away! When I first arrived with my dad I commented that I wasn't expecting much, but this place truly surprised me. They had a little bit of everything and some varieties of plants you don't see in most places. What an enjoyable visit!

My "happy place"! Huge huge selection of indoor and outdoor plants. Their turnover of house plants is very quick, so there are always new options. At times I've been slightly disappointed in the selection of pottery with drainage holes, but in the past few months the selection has really grown. They are super responsive and helpful in person and on social media. They have performed Instagram seminars on various topics with their horticulturalist, which were so helpful! I hope they keep doing these. It's a great atmosphere!

Excellent wide variety of well kept plants. It has the best local indoor plant selection that I have experienced thus far. Definitely helped step up my pothos collection. I can't wait to go back.

I love this place for houseplants! They have a great selection (better than the Raleigh farmers market) and more affordable prices than more "upscale" places (e.g. Zen Succulent)

I wished that it were bigger and had more of a selection of the shrubs I was looking for. Nice for the casual gardener or someone looking for decorative plants and pots.

Huge selection and the workers are very knowledgeable. A bit pricey so I’d recommend buying your plant here, but not the pot/accessories

I call it heaven’s corner. You will find a large variety of subtropical plants. The best compliment came from the little ones at home who said our house is prettier with our plants. I’m glad I was able to find just what I was looking for.

Great service. I was greeted as soon as I walked past the gate and all my questions were answered. They ended up recommending me to another garden center because my request was outside of their scope, which was very kind of them, too.

I love the place. So many unique flowers and decorative features for indoor and outdoor gardens. Very knowledgeable and helpful staff. This business has been around for years and I had forgotten that it was there ... decided to check out spring blooms and pots. The time was well spent because I've been back (2 weeks in a row and counting!). Looking forward to my next adventure in Durham Garden Center.

I've always wanted a aloe Vera plant. I found one and it was so healthy and just pretty. The young lady who worked there showed me flower pots I could and also the potting soil. Great place to buy plants and their necessities.

My wife and I love coming here! They have a huge selection of plants, whether you’re looking for indoor or outdoor. All of the staff are super knowledgeable and helpful. We were needing helping with pollenators and they pointed us in the right direction.

This garden center was much like many garden centers EXCEPT for the people. The people there obviously love their plants and their customers. We just recently moved to the area and didn't know what to plant or when to plant to attract pollinators and birds. They showed us what the plants were, what they attracted and added in whether they were deer resistant. They gave us extra information about every plant we considered. And they answered every question we asked. We left feeling more confident with some extra knowledge. We will definitely go back because the people there were so awesome. They have a good mix of perennials and annuals and native plants. They have nice planters and an inside shop with indoor plants and some seeds and gift items. If you want some advice or just to pick out some plants, it's a great place to go.

Oh my god, true horticulturists. More than willing to spend time to advise and consult. I was there an hour, and Russell answered all of my questions and made all perfect recommendations. I have a tree and plants that support bees and butterflies, are hardy, drought resistant, and all of the advice needed to care for them. This is is the best garden center I have ever been to!!
