The garden center has been closed
Fellow Gardeners & Friends,
First, for those of you who've heard that Wilson Bros is "going out of business," we want to say that this is simply not true. Though the garden center in McDonough will not be reopening in spring of 2019, we will continue to offer the largest variety ever of plants and trees to both local customers and throughout the continental United States through our online store. You can shop over 1,400 varieties (and growing) of our plants online at WilsonBrosGardens.com... and there's FREE DELIVERY on anything and everything you order!
With the closing of the garden center, we’ve been receiving a lot of emails and phone calls from folks with questions regarding where to buy certain exclusive products we carried at the garden center, such as the Lebanon Proscape fertilizers and weed preventers for the DIY Lawn Care Programs. Below is a list of frequently asked questions we hope will help provide answers.
Is Wilson Bros going out of business?
No, as mentioned above, Wilson Bros is not going out of business! There have been three components to Wilson Bros: the Nursery and Garden Center, the Landscaping Services, and our Online Store.
WilsonBrosGardens.com, our online store, will continue as usual to offer and ship a wider-than-ever selection of plants and trees. For example, whereas we offered around 30 varieties of Camellias at the garden center, we now offer around 150 Camellia varieties in the online store.
Wilson Bros Landscape will continue to provide its design and installation services as usual to those in the Atlanta metro and surrounding areas.
Will the Garden Center reopen in spring 2019?
Due to not having not found the highly skilled and knowledgeable management personnel necessary to continue to run the operations of the open-to-the-public garden center, we regret to say it will not be reopening full-time in spring of 2019. That said, as mentioned above, we are happy to say that the nursery and staff are still there and we are offering a wider-than-ever variety of plants and trees to both local customers and those throughout the continental United States from our online store: WilsonBrosGardens.com. Orders placed by local customers will be shipped at no charge by our trucks or UPS.
Also, local customers will be happy to know that we plan to reopen the nursery from time to time for overstock sales and such and will announce when we plan to do so through our newsletter. To get these special announcements you can sign up for our newsletter here.
Will local customers be able to pick up online orders?
At this time we are brainstorming and working on a way to allow local customers to pick up online orders at the nursery in McDonough, GA. Until we do so, depending on order size, all online orders of plants from local customers will be delivered at no charge by either our trucks or UPS. That said, as soon as we figure out the best way for pick-up orders we’ll put the word out in our email newsletter.
Where can I buy the fertilizers on the DIY Lawn Care Program?
We regret to say that since the nursery and garden center is closed until further notice, Wilson Bros will no longer be offering the Lebanon Proscape fertilizer and weed preventer products at the garden center or from our online store. In order to offer them in our online store we would have to purchase a tractor trailer load quantity of the fertilizer, and due to the high costs to ship 40 and 50 pound bags we just don't sell enough of the products in our online store to make this possible.
What to do?
Because our garden center was the only retailer in the United States who offered the Lebanon Proscape turf care products we are unable to refer another source. That said, we've given a lot of thought about alternatives and the best we've come up with is to find similar lawn fertilizer and weed control products made by other companies for each step of the programs.
