As part of our commitment to being a Louisville original, Wallitsch Garden Center employees scour the world of plant material to offer new and superior plant selections for local gardeners. We rely on a variety of sources to ensure that the plants we choose will thrive in our ever-changing local climate.
We meticulously scour trade show and seed catalogs for new, improved annuals as well as proven performers. Then we lovingly grow them in our own greenhouses to ensure the highest quality for your garden and containers. Pre-made porch pots are a great shop-and-drop option for those short on time. We also offer custom designed pots for a truly unique container.
Our staff searches throughout the year for quality, high performing perennials. Then we source them from the very best local and regional growers. Choosing proven performers ensures you get high quality plants with fantastic foliage and seasonal color. Of course, we are always available to answer questions or give garden design advice.
