Our Roots

In the Spring of 1973, a young and optimistic entrepreneur built a small store and greenhouse on four acres in eastern Monroe County. Hard work and a vision for success has turned Wayside Garden Center into a full service, eight acre enterprise sure to delight every gardener.

Did you know that the Wayside name has been used in the family for over 60 years?

Wayside is a locally owned, independent garden center, located less than 2 miles east of Lollipop Farm on Rt. 31. You can wander clean pathways through our vast selection of annuals (grown on site), vegetable and fruit plants, perennials, shrubs, and trees. While you’re here, be sure to check out our ever-expanding line of Native trees, shrubs and perennials, and browse our gift shop. Our knowledgeable staff can guide you to the right plant for the right spot. We also offer extensive design and installation services, as well as quick delivery of bulk mulches and soils throughout the season.
