Here at Red Bluff Garden Center we are dedicated to helping
our customers become more acquainted with all of the many garden possibilities.
Our friendly knowledgeable staff will give you the answers and products
you need to succeed. Our creativity will flow from our yard to yours as
you become inspired by our many displays and color combos.
We offer a large variety of perennials, annuals and vegetables all grown
here at the nursery. These locally grown, acclimated plants will do better
in your yard due to the fact that they are from this area. Portions of the
north state are in a Mediterranean climate which only 2% of the earth's
landmass is considered. This means that we have extremely hot dry summers
and very cold winters. Specific plants are needed to live and thrive in
these types of temperatures and we do our best to ensure that the plants
we grow and bring into the nursery are going to do well in these conditions.
Besides plants, our nursery will provide you with all the fixin's for a
successful garden experience.
Red Bluff Garden Center is located off of Antelope Boulevard
in Red Bluff California. It is a quaint little nursery with big character.
The nursery itself has been around since about 1958-59, but bought by Bud
Winter in 1960. The nursery then was very small, but sold bedding plants,
vegetables, fruit trees, shade tree, shrubs and houseplants, everything
it has now but on a smaller scale. Many of our long time customer's remember
it from way back then.
In 1976 Bud's son, George, bought the nursery from him. Over the next few
years he began to expand the nursery adding a front shade structure, more
stock and bought three more acres in the back in 1980. As the nursery continued
to grow, greenhouses were built on the back lot and used to propagate houseplants.
For a period of time Red Bluff Garden Center sold wholesale houseplants
to 50 florists in the area on a weekly basis! Keeping it in the family was
George's son Doug who ran the houseplant business. George's other son, Brian,
also played a part by being the nursery manager for some time.
Bedding plants were also grown, mostly annuals and vegetables. At one time
plants were sold from dug out flats, meaning diggin' into the redwood boxes
full of plants, using a trowel to dig out a section of plants and taking
it home in a card board box with bare soil. The nursery has come a long
In 1992 George expanded even more by buying a nursery in Redding now known
as Wyntour Garden's. Other improvements such as the large scale wholesale
bedding plants now grown and sold here by Jeff Brooks under the name of
North Valley Grower's provides the North state with locally grown, acclimated
annuals and perennials to be proud of. Jeff began running the wholesale
enterprise in 2001 and sells to 22 retail nurseries from Weaverville to
Tahoe and everywhere in between!
Now, fully stocked with blooming beauties, running fountains, statuary,
ceramic containers, shade trees and more, the nursery is running over with
plants and yard adornments to accent and beautify your home. As we continue
to grow and learn, we pride ourselves on our knowledgeable, friendly staff
that is willing to answer all your questions and concerns about plants.
