Are you looking for plants to achieve a certain goal, or solve a particular problem? Hopefully this page will help you out!
Maybe this is an arbitrary way to look at the plant world, but it's how garden centers do it!
We want to help you achieve your goals for YOUR garden, whatever they may be! From attracting specific birds or butterflies, handing large shady, wet or difficult areas where nothing seems to grow … we can help you find plants that will do the trick!
Scroll through the options below to find plants from the Plant Club’s great growers that can help you achieve the goals you have for your garden. The Problem Solving Plants page may also provide some inspiration
We all have a spot in our yard where things struggle to grow. Here are some plants which may help you solve those problem areas...
Also check out the Goals for your Garden page for some other inspirational plants suggestions.
We try very hard to source exactly what you’d like, but sometimes growers run out of plants! While this variety is a great deal at the price shown, we know that it has limited availability. If you want the plant even if it might be more expensive, or in a different size or quantity -- after you place your order, just send us a quick note at email@example.com. Then, we’ll try to get you some version of this from one of our growers. And if we can’t get it from anywhere, of course, we’ll send a refund!
Plants which are well-adapted to our local climate are most often field-grown (outside). Field-grown plants are generally cheaper and have the advantage of already somewhat acclimated to our cold winters, but that means they’re not artificially far along in the spring and tend to bloom at the normal time in our area.
Spring annuals and tender perennials are typically grown in Greenhouses so they can be ready and luxurious exactly when customers want them. Some perennials are also “forced” into early bloom in greenhouses. In May, there can be a very big difference between field-grown and greenhouse-grown plants of the same type. The latter typically look good right away (so they’re a great choice where that’s important), but we typically pay a premium for it.

Membership is free, but — since we rely on delivery and local pick-up — you have to live near one of our hubs (or be willing to drive to a site to pick them up). If you live farther away, and would like to help us bring the club to your neighbors, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
