A PLANT LOVER'S PARADISE
When you visit Painters, you'll understand why our customers call this place a gardener's paradise. Set on over 9 acres, we have over 100,000 square feet of growing and retail space, and we use every inch of it (including the ceilings!) to grow your plants. We are proud to offer the largest variety of homegrown and native plants (including trees and shrubs) in Western North Carolina. Our loyal customers come from miles around to shop our wide-ranging inventory, stocked with hard-to-find natives, incredibly full Boston ferns, and affordable, mature houseplants. We are open seasonally, March - June, and then September - October, as well as select events throughout the year. When we are not open for shopping, we are busy growing your future plants!
Planning your visit? To get an idea of our current inventory/what to expect, check out our Availability Lists and what's New this Week. Weekends are our busiest days, so if you prefer a quieter shopping experience, we suggest coming Wednesday - Friday. Allow plenty of time--there is a lot to take in and you won't want to miss anything!
Mid April to late May is the BUSY season at Painters; checkout lines may be long at times, but don't worry, we have a system and it moves quickly! That said, our small staff wear many hats, including caring for plants as well as restocking all day, so during these busy weeks we may not be able to spare someone to walk you through a detailed shopping list or provide landscaping advice. We always do our best to help, but if you're hoping for more in-depth guidance, we recommend emailing us with your questions in advance of your shopping trip and we will get back to you as soon as we can. We also welcome you to check out our favorite plant recommendations as well as our resources and guides; we've created them over the years for the very purpose of helping our customers plan their gardens and maintain healthy plants! We are unable to offer holds, prepay, or delivery, but we promise it's always worth the trip to Painters! Visit our hours and directions page to view other area attractions and make a day of it!
