If you like to get a little dirt on your hands, then Edwards is the premier place to go digging for your favorite plants. The seemingly endless greenhouses offer a wide variety of native and exotic plants for your flower or vegetable garden.

For more than 80 years, Edwards has served the Treasure Valley as the place to go for gardeners of all skill levels. The knowledgeable, friendly staff is willing to field all of your flora questions to make sure your garden looks the best it possibly can. Have a tricky sun exposure spot that could really use something? They can answer that. Is your soil giving you fits? They can answer that, too.

From perennials, vines, succulents and annuals to trees, shrubs, grasses, herbs and vegetables, you'll find the plant you need. Edwards is also well-stocked with seed packets (some grown right here from local sources), gardening gloves, watering cans and sprinklers. The pre-planted hanging baskets are absolutely beautiful, and depending on how involved you want to be, you can take potting classes. Custom potting is also available. Have seen those hanging baskets at the Basque Center? Edwards does those.
