In 1992 the lifelong dream of owning a business and the captivating lure of greenhouse production of James and Connie Everett collided and Fernwood began. In the first years, Fernwood was a wholesale growing greenhouse operation that soon grew to supply several chain stores and independent retailers and nurseries. Later, we began selling spring annuals and hanging baskets in Columbia seasonally.


In 2009 the focus began to make Fernwood…more than a garden center. We now offer design and installation services for landscapes or hardscapes, in addition to a wide variety of seasonal annuals, hanging baskets, perennials, shrubs, trees, concrete statuary and fountains displayed at the garden center.
