Independent Garden Centers, or IGC’s, are some of our all time favorite stores. Today, we get to visit two of the countries best IGC’s, The Natural Gardener and The Great Outdoors, both located in Austin, Texas.
Our first stop, The Natural Gardener, is seated on 8 acres of Texas hill country. This IGC is known for its pioneering work in organic gardening and sustainable living. The Natural Gardener is a world-class gardening destination, providing everything from classes to farm animals, to a wildlife habitat. John Dromgoole takes on a tour around The Natural Gardener and what they bring their customers.
Next, Joe heads over to The Great Outdoors, in Eastern Austin, Texas, to explore what an urban garden center is all about. Located only 10 miles outside of the city, they pride themselves on their customer service and their knowledgeable staff. One of the many things that Independent Garden Center’s are known for are the personalized experiences you will receive once you step inside of one. The Great Outdoors will definitely not disappoint in all of the things they bring to the customer, from bringing in the best and newest plants available to providing educational seminars.
