About us

Our history

The Magnolia Garden Center is like the heartbeat of Magnolia. We've een a vilalge stable for over thirty years. 

Today we're still privately owned 

Hi I'm James,  the owner of the Magnolia Garden Center.  


Before I joined the garden center, I discovered and studied landscape design. After college I got my first job at a garden center and was hooked.  A love of the outdoors moved me out west, and I got a job at the Magnolia Garden Store. I still think Margaret hired me because we were both from  Wisconson. I've been at the Magnolia Garden Store on and off for 10 years. When Chuck and Margaret decided to retire, I knew I wanted to become the next owner of the Magnolia Garden Store.


The best thing about the garden center is our incredible staff. We love helping gardeners succeed.  We'll help you plan, troubleshoot and choose the best plants for your gardening projects.
