Today, Earl May Garden Center is among the top 10 independent garden centers in the nation. While the company’s core business remains selling seed and garden products, specialty items have been added. These items include private label lawn and garden seed, fertilizers, garden insecticides and fungicides. In addition, Earl May added a garden gift and decor department and continues to expand the outdoor living department. Service offerings include landscape and container garden design, installation, and yard, garden and container maintenance.
As times change, store facilities also change to allow customers a pleasant, up-to-date shopping experience. In 2020, paint colors and signage will be updated to create an inviting and inspiring atmosphere for our customers.
“Great pride is taken in product knowledge and service. Almost any place can sell a rose bush or potted perennial but not many can tell you how to care for them and honor a guarantee too,” says Mr. Bill Shaw, former CEO. “We want to educate our customers so they’re happy with their purchase and they can enjoy it for years to come.”
