At Van Wilgen’s we’d like to make your shopping experience as safe and pain free as possible. With that in mind, we’ve added on and expanded our usual services. As always, if there’s anything we can do to help, please let us know!

Fresh-Air Retail

We are being exceptionally cautious and have opened outdoor registers at our 53-acre garden center and have enforced policies on social distancing. If you need a bit of a stroll, we support your needs while keeping our community safe. You’re free to shop in the store and greenhouse, we just ask you follow social distancing and wear a face covering per government orders and CDC recommendations.

Contact-Free Delivery

Getting a large order, and can’t fit it all in your car? Need a large amount of bulk material, but don’t have a truck?  We offer both plant and bulk material delivery.

Plant material can be delivered throughout the state, with the delivery fee based on your zip code. (Please note, one delivery charge includes as much as we can fit on one truck, delivered to your site.  With your plants in mind, sometimes we need to send multiple trucks resulting in additional delivery charges.)

For bulk material we will only drop in the driveway or somewhere close to the driveway to prevent disturbances of your lawn, soil, and other unforeseen underground obstacles. Bulk material can be ordered online, or ordered over the phone at (203)-488-2110. Give us a call, we’re here to help! (Please note, if ordering online, you will receive a call from us within 48 hours of placing your order to schedule your delivery.)

Plant Installation Services

Sometimes the plants we sell may be a little too much to take on by yourself.  Save your back, we’re here to help! Our professional install team can plant anything from a small perennial to a large specimen tree.

Van Wilgen’s installations includes everything needed to get the job done including delivery of the plant material, soil amendments, and, of course, planting! Plus, all plantings come with an an automatic two year warranty on all trees, shrubs, perennials and roses.

Please note, customer will be provided with flags by Van Wilgen’s to facilitate both Call Before You Dig service (as required by law) as well as our own installation service. Simply put the flags where you’d like us to plant, and we’ll handle the rest!

Van Wilgen’s fields are the destination for your next event! Guests can stroll along an 8-acre pond and watch the farm come to life. Photos are taken in the gorgeous light of the golden hour filtering through the fields. First dances are had as fireflies dance in the distance. Guests sway to music accented by the crackling of fire pits.
