We have special hours for our senior citizens and those individuals with compromised immune systems from 8AM – 9AM Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursdays.


  • Please know that Longfellow’s should not be a place for social gathering. We ask that our customers come to shop with a purpose. This is the time to purchase your essential gardening needs appropriate for this time of year, and help us with limited accessibility by shopping efficiently. Preparing a list ahead of time is recommended.
  • We will have limited parking and reduced shopping by design to assist in complying with the Governor’s order pertaining to the number of people in our facility at one time.
  • We ask that when possible, no more than two shoppers per vehicle visit the store and (when possible) no children or pets at this time.
  • To comply with social distancing requirements, we will need to limit the amount of people within the facility at one time. If we are at maximum capacity, you may be asked to visit us at a later time.
  • All guests and employees must practice social distancing of at least 6 feet from any other person in the same greenhouse, aisle, outdoor space or at the checkout.
  • Please delay your shopping trip if you or someone in your household is ill.
  • Please wear a face covering while shopping in our store. 
  • We apologize for the inconvenience, but our public restrooms will be closed.
  • All sales will be final as we cannot accept returns at this time.

During this time of essential shopping only; we have made adjustments to how our facility will operate. These changes have been implemented with the goal of keeping our employees and customers safe during this pandemic.

As the COVID-19 pandemic improves and restrictions are eased, we will make changes accordingly. We appreciate all of our valued and loyal customers. Thank you in advance for your support and understanding over the next few weeks as we navigate this together.

We look forward to seeing you shopping with us soon!

Sharman Ballantine

It was a longish drive for me, but well worth it because they still had cedar window boxes left! I bought five. It is a lovely store with all kinds of gift items and clever ideas. All they needed was a coffee shop. I will be back when I have more time to shop. I also bought three small houseplants and a darling outside door mat.

The plants here have so much vitality. If I get a little neglectful they are resilient and bounce back like magic. Plants from Lowes or Home Depot are nothing like this. Additionally, all the staff are incredibly knowledgeable/helpful, and the place is designed beautifully. It is well worth paying a little more to get quality plants from Longfellow’s.

What a great place. It’s family friendly – and has an amazing selection of everything! Will definitely make the trip back. Everyone we met was so friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed our morning here.
