Fall colour at Carp Garden Centre

Fall Colour in Full Bloom

Autumn colour has really taken over at the garden centre: fall planters alongside pumpkins create the most warm and welcoming scene. And we’re expecting cornstalks and straw bales this weekend. Drop by to select the right items and transform your home as we shift into fall.

And of course, you can still enjoy 25% off trees, shrubs and perennials. The fall is the perfect time to plant!
