It all started at a family reunion… the Bishop family are cousins of ours and we started a conversation about similarities with our 2 brands and a partnership was formed. We often are told people did not even know it was Van Wilgen’s and that means we are doing a good job representing both of our brands. Check out our offering of quick grab gifts, centerpieces or just some flowers to feel good. Katie is eager to meet all the familiar faces of those who shop on the regular and her gregarious personality will make you want to stop by and say hi… it will be easy as we are right outside the farm market entrance for your convenience.

Van Wilgens Guilford location.


Van Wilgen’s Guilford Garden Mart is conveniently located, directly next door to Bishop’s Orchards, farm market, and winery. A Guilford landmark! Situated on the post road just minutes from I95 off exit 57. You will always find a fresh assortment of the finest annuals, perennials, herbs, and vegetables. Looking for a gift? We always have a great selection of tabletop planters, patio pots, and hanging baskets along with succulents and houseplants. Fall is fabulous at our Guilford location when we join together with Bishops for the annual Fall Festival. When the little Red Barn opens, you’ll discover a spectacular display of color provided by hundreds of Van Wilgen’s grown mums!

In addition to mums, you will also find a tremendous collection of your favorite fall plants along with the unexpected. Our staff is cheerful, dedicated, knowledgeable, and anxious to help you make the right choices for your garden. Come visit us soon, and often. There is always something new arriving!
