    Holcomb Garden Center has a huge variety of hanging baskets and plants in bloom.

Holcomb’s wellknown local garden experts offer two locations to better serve clients. Tim Holcomb manages and runs the Hixson branch, while his brother Rodney tends to the Fort Oglethorpe, Ga., location.

“The main difference between the two stores is that we have a larger greenhouse space, so we have some more selections of plants,” Rodney Holcomb said, referencing his store.

Shipments arrive daily at the Fort Oglethorpe location and feature a wide variety of plants specially selected to perform in Chattanooga and surrounding areas. House plants, garden-themed gift items, perennials, annuals and more await local garden enthusiasts, all boasting plenty of color and life to spruce up any landscape.

“When it comes to landscape design, we have employees on hand to help customers design what they have in mind with the correct plants and blossoms,” Rodney Holcomb said.

Also available at the Fort Oglethorpe location just in time for Mother’s Day is the highly sought-after HGTV color collection. Customers are sure to delight in the unique color combinations this season.

For moms who are in to planting their own garden, Holcomb offers more than 30 varieties of tomatoes and peppers and more than 50 varieties of herbs. Both locations are also stocked with the proper chemicals, sprays and fertilizers necessary to help protect gardens and get the most out of their crops.

“Our roses and azaleas are also great for Mother’s Day gifts,” Rodney Holcomb said. “This year we have a great azalea that’s a true red, bloomers and some tropical plants and trees that are very popular.”

He added that the Fort Oglethorpe store’s gift area also offers a selection of fairy garden items that are popular with both children and adults, bistro sets and a range of fountains, from tabletop varieties to ones with elegant LED lights.

“When it comes to service, both stores are here to help and people can bring in photos of their plants or samples with their questions and we can help diagnose problems and come up with solutions,” Rodney Holcomb said. “We also encourage everyone to ‘like’ us on Facebook so they an follow our daily shipments and selections and see what’s available.”

He added that both he and his brother have grown up in the business and know every facet of it, so customers can trust they are getting good advice, whatever their gardening needs may be.

“I was two when my family got started doing all this,” Rodney Holcomb said. “I haven’t left it since, and now I’m the one who meets the trucks at all hours of the night and gets to help with setup and ordering our selections.”


Holcomb Garden Center is located at 5513 Hwy. 153 in Hixson and 2705 Battlefield Pkwy. in Fort Oglethorpe, Ga.. For more information or to sign up for the stores’ weekly emails, visit
