Recently I went to visit McCoard’s Garden Center in Provo.
McCoard’s Garden was taken over many years ago by a local woman who has a love for gardening. It began with house plants but over time has become a garden center for the public with indoor and outdoor plants.
On Saturday, June 25, McCoard’s will hold an event for children! During their regular hours between 9 am and 6 pm, children (12 and under) have the opportunity to visit the garden center. For only $5 per child, each child will be able to choose their own brightly-colored flower pot, fill it with soil, and add 2 annuals to it to take home. It is a great opportunity to allow the kids to have their own flowers to take care of.
If you want to win one for one of your children, enter on our Instagram account.

When we had the opportunity to visit the McCoard’s Garden Center, it was amazing how relaxing it was. It was a very warm day but after rushing around all morning, it was nice to wander around the tables and relax for a while. The kids were even mostly calm and enjoying our walk around the garden center.
We ended up buying a huge strawberry hanging planter full of strawberries already (as we’re a little late in the season) and some melon plants to replace the ones that got eaten up in our garden by aphids. Our plants have been home for a few days and are growing well.
Currently there are some great deals going on: Dahlia Days are 30% Off (4″, 6″ and 8″ pots) and 25% Off All Planters. All Hanging Baskets are now 50% off.
