Playing in the Dirt

Playing in the Dirt

Welcome to our new blog!

If you ask customers what sets Chelsea Garden Center apart from other plant shops and garden supply stores throughout the city, they'll tell you it's our people. Our landscape and garden designers, craftspeople, and horticulturists bring decades of experience and insight into their work, and they are passionate about sharing their knowledge to help our customers achieve their gardening goals. It's our team's dedication and passion that keeps our fellow garden-lovers coming back year after year to explore, learn, and develop their skills.

As we continue to build our community, we realize that the knowledge and experience you have access to at our garden centers shouldn't be limited to well...our garden centers. We also realize that some of our customers prefer to learn and experiment on their own. In an effort to bring the spirit of Chelsea Garden Center to all of our customers - onsite and online - we are introducing this, our new blog. In the same way that you can visit our garden centers and chat to our staff about an upcoming project, so can you now come here to learn more about indoor and outdoor gardening and get first-hand advice from the folks who have spent years in the dirt learning the hard way what works, what doesn't, and what it takes to make the garden of your dreams a reality.

"Playing in the Dirt" is your educational resource on how the plant, care for, and maintain the plants you will find here at Chelsea Garden Center. It's also a place where we will address some of the questions we get asked regularly about how to design and build gardens in the urban environment. Living in New York City presents no shortage of challenges for garden enthusiasts, and we understand those challenges and how to solve for them in unique and creative ways. 

If there are questions or challenges that you've been facing and would like to see covered in our blog, we'd love to hear from you. Contact us, and we will route your suggestions to our content team. 

We hope you'll enjoy. Happy reading!
