Echter's is one of the largest retail garden centers in Colorado. We grow many unusual varieties of flowers not normally found in garden centers. Echter's offers over 2500 varieties of flowers each year. We have built our business on the quality and performance of our plants. The service offered is second to none. At least one plant doctor with a minimum of 10 years of garden center experience is on staff every day to answer customers’ questions.
All of the annuals, perennials, roses, and poinsettias grown by Echter’s are sold through the retail store. In addition to the plants grown in the greenhouse, Echter's sells trees and shrubs, and houseplants.
Echter's remodeled and expanded garden center has 70,000 square feet of display area inside. Our patio shop has fine outdoor furniture and garden benches, and outdoor cooking systems. The wildlife department has bird feeders, bird houses, and specialty blends of birdseed for the bird enthusiast. Echter’s holds many community events at no charge. In summer Echter’s hosts a blood drive. In fall Echter’s hosts a quilt show, a glass show, and an art show. Echter’s has free visits with Santa before Christmas collecting donations for the Arvada Food Bank.
At Christmas time the garden center is transformed into a Christmas wonderland with thousands of colorful poinsettias, pre-lit life-like Christmas trees, fresh-cut Christmas trees, themed trees decorated with unusual ornaments.
