Painters Greenhouse in Old Fort, North Carolina, is a seasonal operation open to the public March 1 through July 1. For 40 years, our family-owned and operated business has supplied Western North Carolina with home-grown, high quality plants at affordable prices. Choose from over 800 species of potted perennials, vegetable & annual bedding plants, herbs, fruits, aquatics, succulents & cacti, shrubs & trees, natives, hanging baskets, ferns, house plants and container gardens, plus pottery, garden art and more!

Painters has become known for its ongoing sales that make it worth the drive for customers hours away! Additionally, we are one of the only greenhouses in WNC to grow the majority of our plants ourselves and sell them directly to customers. By shopping at Painters, you are buying locally grown plants from an environmentally-friendly establishment and supporting the community.

We continually expand both our plant selection and our calendar of events & educational programs. Painters Annual Herb Festival has become widely known for showcasing many talented local artisans and musicians while offering a large selection of discounted herbs, and our new Ladies’ Night offers a chance to relax and be pampered in our beautiful greenhouse setting!

Enjoy our new gardens and water features, where you can view many of our plants in the landscape. Several seating areas are available for picnicking, relaxing and enjoying the surroundings. Painters is not simply a place to shop for plants, but also a destination for outings with family & friends! We are an easy 35 minute drive from Asheville, Morganton or Lake Lure, and about 20 minutes from Marion and Black Mountain, so come visit us!
