I found out about Lurvey's a year ago when I won a raffle gift from there. The staff is very helpful and the greenhouse is top notch. All the plants are so healthy and beautiful. I often go here to just look around their store and I always walk out with something! It's worth the trip, check it out... more »

What a beautiful store and nursery. I have evergreens for our yard from Lurveys and they are flourishing very well. What a fun filled Columbus Fall event for the kids. My Grandchildren had a ball more »

This garden center is lovely. I've been coming here for years (I live about an hour away, but stumbled upon this place due to work travel years ago...been making the yearly trek ever since!).
/>They must've renovated the inside recently because it's huge & has so much more to offer!
For example, there's a coffee station for customers.
They also have unique gifts for anyone on your list (pet lovers, gardeners, wedding showers, newlyweds, housewarming, the list goes on...)
They have fairy gardens, terrariums, koi ponds...and did I mention the gorgeous array of flowers & plants?!?
Lurveys is my go-to place for spikes (never seen any as tall as theirs). Their flowers are well-loved and tended to so they can be transferred right into your garden!
The staff is plentiful & helpful too.
I'm pretty honest when it comes to my opinions, so I'm going to be honest with this last item as well. Lurveys is the type of place that you get what you pay for. If you covet unique, high-quality products for your home or garden (or for fun gifts), then be prepared to spend that little extra. But, the items are top notch & I've never had a problem with anything I've purchased there through the years (there are exchange/returns, if needed though).
Did I mention they have a complimentary loyalty program as well?! ($$ spent turns into $$ off).
Plan to spend at least an hour here (if it's your 1st time); so much to see, so much to buy, so many new ideas to gather! ❤️Lurveys!! 😊🌿🌺

Countless choices
Lurvey's is a quality store for trees, bushes, and long term plants. They have a wide selection of types of plants. No matter what you buy from Lurvey's you know that
you will be getting a quality plant.
The sales people are also extremely knowledgeable. They know everything about all the plants and will guide you to make the right choice for your needs and desires. But this quality of plants and service does come at a price. Landscaping in general is a pricey endeavor, but they do add a little for the quality they offer.

Lurvey's Garden Center
Lurvey's (at Dempster and Potter) has been there for quite some time, but they have remodeled/expanded a few years ago. They have a fine selection of annuals and
perennials, as well as trees and bushes. They also have a good selection of vegetable and herb plants, as well as some really nice hanging baskets of flowers. We purchased a plum tree a few years ago from them, and it is growing very nicely in the backyard, in an area where we have had problems with other things growing. They have also expanded to include water fountains, ponds, and babbling brooks. The information gazebo is very helpful, and the expert can often guide you in the direction of what you are looking for. more »
