One bright spot during the tragedy and uncertainty of the Covid-19 pandemic is seeing the number of people who are creating gardens. Spaces where families connect with the earth, grow their food, learn a bit about biology and food systems, and enjoy being outside. Journalists throughout the country are calling these Victory Gardens. This moniker dates back to the World Wars when governments encouraged people to create gardens to supplement their rations and boost morale. Thankfully, we are far from rations, but there are no questions that food uncertainty looms large, so many people, who have a little extra time on their hands, are turning to backyard farming as a way to find happiness, source their produce, and flex their patriotism. 

To help with all of your gardening needs, many nurseries remain open, as most are deemed “essential services.” (Landscapers, like Yardzen, also remain open, while following the most stringent health and safety standards.)

The following list of garden centers is a small handful of the highest-rated nurseries in CA, TX, WA, OR, and NV that remain open during the pandemic. Every nursery is taking different precautions to ensure the health and safety of its staff and customers, ranging from curbside pickup and delivery to guest-limited, in-store shopping.
