Unlike many large nursery chains, Armstrong Garden Center is 100-percent employee-owned and touts itself as the largest independent retail nursery company in California. Armstrong has a large inventory ready to meet most gardening needs. It carries edibles, garden accents, houseplants, and water gardens. It also sells barbecue islands, pottery, patio furniture, gardening equipment, and sod. Armstrong provides in-store consultation for gardening questions but will not make house calls.
The large chain store offers pet grooming, provides in-store dog training, and carries a large selection of products for common household pets.
