Those who know me, know I love plants! As seasons change here in Lane County, one of my favorite places to visit for all my gardening needs is the wonderful Johnson Brothers Garden Market, located just a few minutes north of Eugene in quaint little Coburg.
Johnson Brothers has a tremendous variety of annuals, perennials, shrubs, trees, vegetables, berries, fruits for every season. And that’s not all. For example, come spring and summer, the selection of hanging plants (literally hundreds hang within their beautiful greenhouses) is a site to behold. You have to see the smattering of hanging color in person to truly appreciate the variety they have! And during Christmas, the selection of poinsettias is one of the biggest you’ll find anywhere in the Northwest. Other favorite areas of mine include the selection of roses, houseplants and outdoor ground cover. Rarely do I visit Johnson Bros. without walking through each greenhouse and retail area to see the latest in new offerings. It changes all the time!
That said, the extraordinary selection and reasonable prices aren’t the only reasons why Johnson Brothers one of my favorite places. The warm and friendly service and atmosphere are what truly make it special. The staff is attentive, helpful, and will help you with any questions you may have. I’ve been blessed to get to know the owners, Katie and Caleb Johnson. These are two of my favorite people! Katie and Caleb are truly dedicated to what they do and have created one of the most unique retail experiences in Lane County. (How many garden centers have a coffee bar?!) They are always bringing in new products to choose from and Katie incorporates elements of modern, country and metropolitan decor to the overall garden experience.
Additionally, Katie and Caleb have committed to a variety of fun events that include free classes on gardening (for children and grown-ups), as well as unique opportunities to fine-tune your home decor. They even have events such as hot pepper eating contents and lessons on how to fix cocktails with fresh herbs and ingredients. Johnson Brothers is so much more than a garden center!
I encourage all my clients to visit Johnson Brothers anytime of the year. They have arguably the best selection, prices and customer service in the area. Additionally, I host a cookie, hot chocolate and cider night from within of their greenhouses during Christmastime. It’s yet another a testament to their willingness to please each and every customer.
When you visit, ask for a chance to meet Caleb and Katie and tell them Jan sent you. They’ll likely go out of their way and come say hello.
No doubt Johnson Bros. will soon become one of your favorite places, too.
