I love Gunters! It's an unassuming gem. If you collect houseplants, this is the place to go. Great prices, selection, and quality. Plus, the owners are so kind and knowledgeable. I'm a customer for life!

This is by far one of my favorite if not favorite places to go for plants. The collection is unbeatable. Always look forward to seeing the rare plants on Instagram to know what to look for on Saturday. Most greenhouses are over priced, don't know there plants, or just have basic common ones found in your local Lowe's or home Depot. But Gunters is way above anything else and will continue to keep looking and of course buying from them.

ADORE. THIS. FAMILY. GREENHOUSE. Just the kindest folk and best listeners when I have a plant problem. I have so many rare and beautiful plants from many happy and satisfied visits to Gunters. The variety and low prices are astounding. Skip Etsy and big box stores, get yourself over to Gunters. You will be VERY HAPPY. Thank you!!!

This is my favorite local greenhouse. Great plant selection at reasonable prices, knowledgeable people who are willing to spend time talking plants, and bonus greenhouse cats. Pumpkin is my favorite and I try to give her pets every time I go. My sister drives up from Georgia to visit me and this is always the first place she wants to go. We go for the tropicals but there are also perennials/annuals, food plants, and plant accessories like soil, amendments, pots and pest control.

My favorite greenhouse to support in the Triangle. Awesome selection and the owners offer great plant advice. You can also purchase their custom mix soil

I've been shopping at Gunter's for a year now and love everything about this place! Almost my entire plant collection has come from Gunter's. Great variety (even throughout the winter!), fair prices, kind people. The cute cats are a plus.

Just affordable, healthy, wide selection, great customer service. They'll help with advice about plants if needed. Overall the best plant purchasing place I've ever been to. Will get all my plants from them from now on. 💖

It was an amazing experience there! I felt at home and comfortable. They have a great selection even though I really wanted Elephant Ears! Lol! They had them, they just weren’t ready yet. The customer service was great and the staff was knowledgeable. They answered every single question I had and the owner even chatted with me about some plants that I’m not having success with. I appreciate this place sooo much and I will definitely be returning!

We are so lucky to have this hidden gem in Durham. I am a first time gardener this year and this has become my second home to pick up soil, plants and accessories. The owner is so knowledgeable and will always lead you in the right direction. It's a family owned and operated business with a ton of heart and excellent selection. They even have a greenhouse cat and coy pod!

Attention all bird lovers you would actually love this place there's a huge selection of every kind of bird feeder I've never even seen so many in my life LOL! Employees are so stinking nice and helpful! Easy to find everything even though it was really busy when I went huge so she's been a plans everything is always over my price range but for the selection you get it was decent tons of sale items and pottery outback. Really fun experience I could go here everyday and find something new🙌🌻

Such a great selection!! I went to two other garden centers that morning and was disappointed in what they had. Gunter's had everything I was looking for and more, and their prices were very reasonable! The plants all looked healthy, it was hard to choose! Their pot selection is also pretty good and I loved the variety of indoor and outdoor plants / flowers. Definitely will be going here from now on for all my plant needs

Fantastic greenhouse, the best stocked I've been to. Their stock I believe is smaller right now because of the winter and still for houseplants had the wildest diversity in options that I've ever seen, very rare stuff too, without the insane prices if you were to try to buy things online. I bought several large very healthy plants, one even that I had never seen before in a store for under $100. The people I talked to were very friendly and they had lots of options for pots and other accessories as well

The family (including the greenhouse kitties) that run Gunters Greenhouse is so sweet and welcoming! They always have beautiful houseplants and outdoor plants, with great variety. They are priced so fairly as well. Their plants are healthy, pest free, and so carefully taken care of. If you haven’t already, it’s worth making a trip! Kevin always helps me out when I have any questions. He goes above and beyond! Thank you Gunters!

They didn't have what I was looking for, but they had plenty I didn't know I needed. I hate to give them a glowing review because I am making more competition for the rarer plants! Haha. This nursery is really awesome. It will go into my monthly search for plants. They are worth the stop by.

If you love plants, you have got to come to to Gunters (they're basically THE rockstars in the Triangle plant scene). They have a great selection of unique plants at reasonable prices. The staff is super helpful and friendly. They're a local business I enjoy supporting because they're so good to you.

Such good deals and plants I could never find anywhere else! First person I met was not friendly. But ran into a lady who was soo helpful. Got a plant I've been wanting for a long time. I'm so happy. Edit: This was my first time at Gunters. I just wanted to add that even though this person wasn't friendly, I gave this person grace because I understand if you're busy and maybe they weren't meant to help customers. 🤷‍♀️ It didn't stop me from enjoying the greenhouse. I will visit more in the future and would still recommend my own family and friends to checkout Gunters. 🙂

I love this place so much. Everything is super fairly priced and the staff is always helpful and willing to help. Oh and they all wear masks! I live in west Raleigh but I’m always willing to make the drive to see all the new goodies they have. The cats that live on the property are adorable as well. The only complaint I have (not a real complaint) is that on this morning, there was condensation on the windows of the greenhouse that stored the employees-only rare plant collection so I couldn’t creep on the plants from the outside

We found out about this greenhouse through a Facebook plant page. We drove over 3 hours to get there, and it was so worth it! The staff is so kind, and they have plenty of interesting plants at fantastic prices. Will definitely be making the trip again!

Members of a local plant group introduced me to Gunter’s. I am only sad I didn’t know about this gem sooner. House plants and outdoor plants and shrubs. The indoor plant variety is amazing. I highly recommend a trip (or 2 or 20) to Gunter’s Greenhouse.

I have been buying plants from Gunters Greenhouse since it was across the street at the parents house. Their knowledge about the plants they carry is very helpful in making my decision easier when buying. I have always been very pleased with the plants purchased at Gunters. I recommend them to everyone I hear looking for plants. I love being able to support a local family owned business.

A great selection of plants and some of the most helpful staff I've met at a garden store. They have one of the best selections of indoor plants I've ever seen and they really put the effort in to only stock things that they know will grow really well in the area. Between that and the staff advice I usually feel really confident that we'll be able to get anything we purchase to really flourish in our yard or home.

So glad I discovered this gem!! Huge selection and the staff helped me find exactly what I came for. I paid way less than I expected...it would have been at least double the price at Lowes. I will go here now whenever I need plants!

A garden shop the way it should be--knowledgable assistance, huge array of indoor plants (mostly succulents), good advice, seasonal plantings, big bags of mulch, etc. (forgot to ask if they deliver large quantities without bags). Don't take your dog--cats are on patrol. Can't wait to return!

Stopped by today and was in awe of all the beautiful house plants! I’ll definitely be stopping by again in the spring. One thing to note: don’t bring your dog. I bring mine everywhere and was warned that there are multiple cats on the premises, one of which attacks dogs. I had to put my girl back in the car.

I went to three other places before Gunters. Gunters has the best selection of fall and end of summer plants, not just mums and pansies. I bought asters, purslane and purple cabbage. Many items on sale. Soil and compost too. Also expert advice on caring for your plants.

Huge selection of indoor and outdoor flowers. Perfect for getting a grip on your garden out back, or your curb appeal, or even the inside of your home or office. A variety of plants at great prices, and everything you need to take care of them. I’ll always be a happy customer!

It's my greenhouse favorite. In addition to having an excellent and new selection each week, the owners of Gunter's are also very knowledgable. They share a lot of information on soil, light needs, and fertilizer. They also have a beautiful selection of plants and glass terrariums.

I almost hesitated rating Gunter's Greenhouse because it was so great that I worried giving it any more traction would lower my chances of snagging those beautiful succulents. The indoor plant / succulent greenhouse is a wonderland. I know I'll be back to pick up some more plants.

This is a great place to purchase your plants! The houseplants look like they just came out of the ground. The people are knowledgeable and will tell you what to do once you get our green baby home. There is no pressure to buy extras and the prices are by far the best I have seen. So good in fact that I'm going back tomorrow : > even though this place is no where near me.

We were really impressed today with our visit to Gunters Greenhouse. Even though it is getting hot out, they still had an incredible variety of plants to choose from and they were some of the most healthy looking plants I have ever seen. I was also impressed with the value provided. Prices were as good or better than any other local garden center, especially considering the size and health. Everything is grown on site with lots of care. The owners also took lots of time to chat with us and provided plenty of advice and information to help us be as successfully possible. It was really nice and we really appreciated that they were so available to help. Won’t ever go anywhere else again!

Great place! I called all over Raleigh to try and find a String of Hearts plant, no one seemed to have them. I bought not just one but two here! Gunters had such a great selection and a large variety of plants! If you have a specific plant you're trying to buy, this is the place for you! People who value plants clearly own this business!!

Such a lovely selection of all garden varieties and beautiful hanging baskets. Gunter's has been our "go to" for the past 5 years as we prefer to shop locally. The owners are so friendly and helpful, ready to offer some consultation about the plants, soil and general care. As if this recommendation is not enough, you will enjoy their "on site" kitties that are available for attention and personal consultation!!

Just moved to NC and being someone that’s always loved plants, I’ve been checking out greenhouses all over. Gunter’s had so many wishlist plants and has become my first choice for houseplants- many rare varieties, all very healthy, and the owners are very friendly and quick to answer questions on care and varieties. Loved my first trip to Gunter’s today, but certainly not my last.

I've never owned house plants before until recently when my daughter gave me a prayer plant (lemon lime maranta) for my birthday.  I have been obsessed with wanting to add more house plants since. I live in the brier creek area and I googled 'nursery near me' and Gunters popped up being 3 miles away from me. Yay! Hopped in my car and I was there in less than 10 minutes. They had a good selection of house plants that were on my list to get. I bought a bonnie curly variegated spider plant, peperomia ruby cascade, a pilea, and a tiger fern.  I was like a kid in a candy store. Lol. The young girl at the front counter was sweet, friendly, and very helpful. A woman whom I think might be the owner was really nice and friendly too. Found out while chatting with the girl at the counter that the woman was her mom. Oh and there was a beautiful cat near the counter too. I love cats! I'm definitely going back. They had a great selection of plants in the greenhouse and I already have my eye on a few plants I want to get next. I really liked the vibe and atmosphere at this place.  I highly recommend Gunters Greenhouse!
