"I often come to Jackson's on my lunch break when I'm having a bad day in the office. A walk through the greenhouse never fails to cheer me up. The plant selection is top notch, and the staff members (greenhouse cats included!) are always so friendly and helpful. I love this place."

"My boyfriend and I decided we wanted to lift our spirits and shop for some flora...we had thought we might go to Skinner's Garden Center but instead opted to try Jacksons.
I am GLAD we did! We pulled into the parking lot and we were greeted by cart loads of pansies, onions, baby lettuce...it was looking good already!
We went inside and were transported to a mecca of garden ornaments and doo dads! My dear friend came along with us as well and she was delighted at the selection they had! Handblown glass gazing balls, fountains, darling ornaments, and wonderful wrought iron hose gaurds! The front of the shop is CHOCK full! There is so much to see to see, and the variety and quality of their wares are remarkable!
We strolled back into the greenhouse itself and WOW. Just an FYI it is mid March (the ides to be exact) and at this time of year greenhouses are pretty bare....but not Jackson's! They had wonderful tanks full of koi arranged by size, and isle after isle of cactus, and tropicals...exotic houseplants...herbs.
They also have growing systems and planters that are so unusual you will not see them anywhere else.
The otherside of the green house seems to be devoted to annuals and vegetables, which are already sprouted and waiting to go outside when the time is right!
OH....and do not forget to say hi to Frank the cat. He is black and white....chubby and a lovely friendly boy who will follow you wherever you go. I gave him some cat mint from one of the tables..shhhh do not tell!
If you are feeling the winter ho hums...I advise you to get a dose of spring time. It reminds you that spring is just around the corner and the folks at Jacksons know how to present all the possibilities!"
