CLOSED FOR THE SEASON
A knowledgeable, friendly staff is here to assist you in making your gardening adventures a success. With a large inventory of quality plants, goods and accessories it’s easy to enjoy the great outdoors. If you don’t see exactly what you’re looking for we have an ongoing “wish list”. We make several buying trips each week and we’ll do our best to locate it for you. We hand select all our plant material plus we grow over 2000 varieties of perennials, hosta and groundcovers right here at the gardens

Here at CRYSTAL GARDENS we are always happy to help you load your purchases too! We can deliver and install any of the materials we sell as well. We employ a full landscape and garden maintenance crew.
The GREENHOUSES have all the stuff you need to get your garden started. We have a total of 8 greenhouses all with a different purpose. During our prime plant season, normally May/June, our greenhouses are overflowing with a large selection of annual flats, potted material & hanging baskets. #1 & #2 Greenhouses are dedicated to sun-loving plants. #3 Greenhouse is our ‘creative’ house where you will find fun, happy potted arrangements put together and ready to adorn your deck, patio or picnic table. #4 Greenhouse is ‘custom potting’. Not only do we have the largest selection of pottery in Northwest MI we also have the capability and talents to fill them with plants of your choosing or ours. This greenhouse is set aside just for this purpose. #5 Greenhouse is shade-loving annuals. #6 Greenhouse is a combination of sun annuals, groundcovers, herbs and hanging baskets. This greenhouse is also the favorite of our resident peacock Thuja, where he is most likely found. #7 Greenhouse is the geranium house and is one of the most spectacular during the height of the spring, housing 20-30 different varieties to choose from! Our last, biggest, greenhouse is called the Crystal Palace that sits in front of the garden center. This ‘palace’ houses flats, annual flower flats and vegetables.

As our season progresses into summer, not only do we stock a nice selection of PERENNIALS, TREES & SHRUBS, and all of your basic garden materials, we also have CUT FLOWERS picked fresh daily. They are available to turn into a bouquet of your choosing or you can pick one of our own arrangements. Our cut flower gardens adorn both sides of the driveway as you enter Crystal Gardens.

Fall brings a quieter time of season for us. Pumpkins, mums, fall decor and plant clearance sales is our norm. The fall leaf colors along M-22 are spectacular and warrants a ride to Crystal Gardens.
There is much to see. Bring a camera, your family or some friends and enjoy the day. No matter the season, Crystal Gardens garden center is looking forward to your visit. Hope to see you soon!
