FAQ

To make your shopping experience at Specialty Growers enjoyable, we have answered a few frequently asked questions from our customers.

Where can I buy your plants?

We sell all of our plants at our 10-acre nursery on Golf Club Road, located mid-way between Brighton and Howell, MI.  We invite our customers to walk through our outdoor nursery and perennial displays, so they can personally choose the plants that are suitable for their garden themes, soil characteristics, sun/shade mix and available space. We do not take online orders or ship plants directly to customers.

Do you have staff members to assist customers?

All of our staff members are knowledgeable gardeners with Master Gardener certification and many years of practical experience, in their own gardens and at Specialty Growers.  They are happy to assist you in choosing the right plants for your particular gardening situation.

When is the best time to shop at Specialty Growers?

Opening Day (April 12 this year) and the rest of April are exciting times to visit Specialty Growers because gardeners are tired of winter and yearning for spring. This is the best time to shop for woodland wildflowers; they sell out fast! However, many of our outdoor-grown plants will still be small and newly emerging from dormancy during April. May is the busiest month of the year for nurseries because that’s when most people are actively planting their gardens.  You won’t want to miss out on the action! June and July are the months when the greatest number of perennials bloom, making this the most colorful time of year at Specialty Growers.  Our selection of perennials is usually best during the month of June, and you can choose from hundreds of daylilies in bloom during July.  Visit us in August and September if you are interested in native plants and ornamental grasses, which are at their peak during these months.  As you can see, there is always a good time to visit Specialty Growers!

What forms of payment do you accept?

Our customers may pay with cash, check, all major credit cards and, of course, Specialty Growers gift certificates.
