Mountain Ridge Garden Shop & Johnson Nursery– A gardener’s Dream team

Are you ready to dig in the dirt? Spring is here—and it’s time to get your garden ready. If you want to shop where you can get everything you need for gardening, look for the big red barn surrounded by colorful spinners and flags: the experienced staff at Mountain Ridge Garden Shop are here to help.

For starters, Mountain Ridge Garden Shop stocks everything you need from soil amendments, fertilizers and worm casting to water gardens. And if you want native trees and shrubs we have them. Are you overwhelmed with deer and don’t know where to start in shooing them off? We have the answer for you.

In addition, we provide an excellent selection of flowering trees, locally grown annuals, perennials, exceptionally lovely hanging baskets, big, gorgeous Boston fern, herbs and veggies. If you’re going organic, we can go with you by offering many products that are eco-friendly.

This year we’re partnering with Johnson Nursery, in Ellijay, a family-owned business for 24 years, with a knowledgeable staff, which is the largest fruit tree grower in the South. Johnson Nursery grows almost 50 varieties of apples, as well as a large variety of peaches, pears, grapes, and berries. Through this partnership, we’ll offer our customers quality fruit trees and supplies. Are you a first-time orchard grower or already have one started? Either way, we can help you.

Need help with landscaping? Just call and make an appointment with us and we’ll sit down with you and help you get through the process to do the project successfully.

Those special touches of unique pottery, yard art, and fountains found at Mountain Ridge Garden Shop will not be run-of-the-mill that you find at box stores and discount places, ours are singular enough to bring “Oohs” and Aahs.”

Workshops and fun events are something we enjoy offering our customers. Our first good-time event of the spring season is an Easter Egg Hunt for kids from birth to age eight, on April 19 at 10 a.m. Bring them with their baskets to fill, and we’ll have Studio 5 Photography on-site for picture-taking , in addition to games.

Looking on to autumn, when we close the growing season, our biggest event of the year is our build-your-own–scarecrow workshop. No one in north Georgia wants to miss it!

Saturdays throughout the planting, growing season, we conduct various workshops for adults and kids. If you check our website, you won’t want to miss any of them.
