Spruce Up Your Gloucester County NJ Home's Landscape

Michael's Florist and Greenhouse of West Deptford Can Help You Spruce Up Your Gloucester County Home and Landscape!

Let Mike Cater to You!Whether you are buying a new home or sprucing up your current home, having a great landscape is an important part of home ownership, and it s certainly important when buying or selling a home. A front yard that "pops" when a buyer first drives up can be a huge benefit.

They Are Growing!I've trusted Michael William's Florist and Greenhouse for the last 2 years and plan to do a sizable overhaul of my own landscape. That is one of the reasons I dropped by his place located in West Deptford, NJ. The pots at right are a client's own that Mike has help set-up with just the right size and type.

One of the most welcoming aspects of purchasing plants at Michael's is that he always gives some easy to remember advise on how to care for the plants. Many of us do not have a green thumb, and so a little advise goes a far way.

Well the season is just beginning and as you can see by the pictures here (all taken at Michael's), little stems and buds are starting to pop all over the place. There are plants for decoration, others for eating (you simply CAN NOT beat a Jersey Tomato!), and even others for helping control pests.

Michael's is currently preparing for their opening on April 1st, so that they can help you prepare for all of your plant, garden, and landscaping needs!

Look at all those youngin's!

Yes it is almost planting time.  We don't usually plant annuals until about May 31 here in Southern Michigan.

Steve, What an outstanding greenhouse & variety of plants for sale.  I like to be able to take my pot or hanging basket in and have them design it.

Hi Steve -- Nothing like a greenhouse at the first sight of spring.  Makes one want to forget the longer, darker, and colder days of winter.
