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 to follow social distancing and wear a face-covering since some of our younger staff members are not yet fully vaccinated.

Contact-Free Delivery

Van Wilgen’s offers delivery for our bulk goods and plant material. We’ll deliver 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.  If multiple trucks are needed for a large order, it will result in additional delivery charges.

To prevent damage to your lawn, we always prefer to drop bulk material in the driveway or other hard surface. Bulk material can be ordered online or ordered over the phone at (203)-488-2110.

Once your order is complete, you’ll receive a call from us within 48 hours of placing your order to schedule your delivery.

Plant Installation Services

Our professional install team can plant anything from a small perennial to a large specimen tree.

Van Wilgen’s installations include 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 automatic two-year warranty on all trees, shrubs, perennials, and roses.

Please note, customers 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!

Custom Container Services

No container should ever go unfilled!  Decorate your home or business for every season; explore our selection of spring, summer, fall, winter-tough container plants, as well as our assortment of cut greens for holiday interest!

Bring your own pots or pick something from our collection. We can plant in anything you can think of. Plants are our passion and we love to share our passion with you.  Need inspiration?  We can offer fresh ideas and helpful tips to keep your container combinations thriving.

Contact us by phone at (203)-488-2110 or stop by to get started!

Weddings and Events at the Fields

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.

Along with our catering partners, we help bring your personal style and vision to life for the perfect, once-in-a-lifetime day.
