Located near historic downtown Columbia, Fernwood Garden Center specializes in seasonal annuals and bulk landscaping items. Family owned and operated, we are blessed to call many of our customers “friends.” Our commitment to customer service is deeply personal and well known throughout Middle Tennessee.


Fernwood began in 1992 as a greenhouse operated by our founders, James and Connie Everett. Soon we supplied chain stores, independent retailers, and nurseries. Four years later we opened a seasonal open-air market in Columbia, TN, offering a wide variety of seasonal annuals and hanging baskets. As we opened our permanent location on James Campbell Blvd. we quickly expanded to carrying perennials, shrubs, trees, and even concrete statuary and fountains.

Every season is a new adventure at Fernwood. As spring blooms and summer blossoms we provide a tremendous selection of blooming annuals, ornamental grasses, aquatic plants, ornamental trees… Fall is marked by truck loads of pumpkins, gourds, cornstalks, and apples… As fall turns to winter and the Holiday season approaches, the air at the garden center fairly buzzes with the making of wreaths, garlands, and roping from fresh greenery. The smell of Christmas trees fills the air and bright poinsettias abound.

We are more than just a garden center. Our team is dedicated to serving and blessing our city, our state, and our country; not only by providing excellent service and beautiful products, but through the sponsorship of scout troops, athletic groups, and school clubs and bands. We are a part of your community. Won’t you be a part of ours?
