Plant Lovers Won’t Be Able To Resist The Gardening Paradise At Tonkadale Greenhouse In Minnesota
Here in Minnesota, the growing season is only a few months long. While this may seem disappointing to some out-of-state green thumbs, Minnesotans have a handle on how to make the most of the sunny season. One of the first steps? Visiting a garden center with all of the veggie plants, hanging baskets, and other supplies needed to plant the perfect summer garden. Along the way, adding a few beautiful houseplants to the cart is just an added bonus. After all, these plants will live – if you’re careful – through summer and beyond.
There are many garden centers throughout the state but one favorite is Tonkadale Greenhouse. This enormous garden center has everything you need for both your indoor and your outdoor garden. When it comes time to plan your garden – or you’re just itching for your new favorite houseplant – stop in for potting soil, pots, and plants galore!
