Berks County Horticulture

Obviously, a big part of farming is food. But throughout the Greater Reading Area, that isn’t the only reason we’re so dedicated to our craft. Nature is beautiful, and for many of us in Southeastern Pennsylvania, traditions and memories are important. That’s where Berks County horticulture comes in.

Gardening Essentials

Spring and summer are the seasons for gardening and you don’t have to go too far to find all of the essentials! Head to the local Berks County greenhouses, garden centers, and nurseries to find mulch, fertilizer, potting soil, and a large selection of annuals, perennials, hanging plants, vegetables, trees, and shrubs.

When planning your garden this year, remember to support local farmers and grow together. Not only will you be helping their business, but they can offer you advice and guidance for your garden to help it grow strong this season.

Creating Cherished Memories

The Berks County area has long been the standard for tradition and family values. A big part of that identity is the multiple local orchards, garden centers, and nurseries that have existed in this area for generations.

Berks County knows family, because we are family. In fact, places like Firstfruits Orchard in Douglassville and Wild Fox Farm in Barto have been family-owned and operated without fail for decades.

Decorate Locally for the Season

All throughout Berks County, families enjoy decorating their homes for the season. With local horticulture, there’s trees, flowers, bushes, and decorations for every season. You can find beautiful poinsettias and handmade authentic wreaths and garland in the winter, bright flowers and shrubs to decorate lawns in the spring and summer, and traditional fall decor like corn stalks, gourds, and pumpkins.

Take a look at Geigertown Greenhouse in Birdsboro for example. This fourth generation grower offers a broad selection of quality plants for your home and garden. They offer the newest selections for you to try, along with our tried and true favorites for your gardening enjoyment. Some of their products include annual flowers, perennial flowers, vegetable plants and seasonal crops including: mums, pumpkins, decorative fall cabbage, poinsettias, Christmas Trees, and much more!
