I bought composed mulch and put it in my front garden bed several years ago. It is still one of the most productive areas in my yard, hands down. Plus, Mr. Dromgoole identified a native tree for me when I brought in a branch. Thank you!!

The plant quality and selection are excellent. I haven't had a single problem with any of the plants I've purchased, and I love the thorough descriptions and classifications used. It's very easy to select plants based on size, soil type, sun requirements, etc. They also offer a great selection of plants that thrive and look beautiful in central Texas, especially plants that are drought tolerant (one of my major concerns when selecting plants). The staff are friendly and helpful. Their store area is nice with a variety of seeds, tools, and accessories. I've been using their Lady Bug Brand potting soil which has been great. I recently purchased some Revitalizer compost and will be using that for my vegetable garden this year. As a special bonus, they're dog-friendly. If you're wanting to buy soil, compost, mulch, etc., think about bringing your own containers. They sell bags if you forget.

I love this place!!! I live 3 hours south of it and whenever I get a chance I shop here. They have a terrific and widely varied selection of plant types and everything I have ever bought there has thrived. The prices on their plants are second to none and their workers are more than willing to help in any way they can. They have a great selection of gardening chemicals and tools, as well as bulk soil, amendments and mulch.

The Natural Gardener is a great place to go if you want to learn and use organic gardening principles. They offer several gardens to tour, including a butterfly, herb, and veggie garden. The store itself offers many annuals, perennials, and trees that are organically grown, and many are native plants. They make their own soil and compost mixes that you can bag yourself - high quality and highly recommended!
