The days may be running together for most people amidst all of this COVID-19 chaos, but one thing is for certain: spring is here! One second it’s 70 and sunny, the next second we’re experiencing April showers (of both the rain and snow variety, of course). For many homeowners, spring means it’s time to get planting, landscaping and gardening! Here are just a few of Madison’s favorite flower shops and greenhouses for you to get started at this spring:
1. Klein’s Floral and Greenhouses Klein’s is a little breath of fresh air on bustling East Washington Ave. in Madison. With an expansive greenhouse and charming floral shop, you’ll find everything from low-maintenance air plants, aloe, and every type of soil you can imagine, to herbs, perennials and annuals galore. They are currently accepting online orders for curbside pickup, so it’s never too early to get your spring planting started!
2. Madison Greenhouse Store This quaint little shop on Madison’s popular Williamson Street is a neighborhood favorite and can provide for all of your garden or house plant needs! They’ve got planters, soil, potted plants, seeds, and they prioritize local artists in selecting their ceramic planters. Check it out next time you’re in the area!
3. Paradigm Gardens With locations in Nebraska and Madison, Paradigm Gardens is extremely knowledgeable about everything plants, environment, landscaping, and more! Find it on Stoughton Road, and expect to be wowed by their vast selection of greenhouse and gardening supplies, from lighting, to nutrients, to containers, to air purification products. If you’re not already, you’ll be a pro gardener when you leave!
4. Kopke’s Greenhouse Just south of Madison near Oregon sits Kopke’s Greenhouse, which prides itself on growing the most beautiful flowers and strongest plants for its shoppers. They are committed to staying open this spring while still providing their clients a safe shopping experience. You’ll be just as impressed by their friendly crew as you are by their gorgeous selection!
5. Felly’s Flowers Garden Center The Garden Center at Felly’s Flowers offers a wide selection of annuals, perennials, patio planters, trees and blooming shrubs. While you can find four locations of Felly’s Flowers around the Madison area, the Garden Center is located in Fitchburg and features 35,000 square feet of colorful selection no matter the need.
