We are thrilled to announce the launch of our newly redesigned website that has been reorganized to make it easier for you to find the shrubs you’re looking for to complete your new landscape project or refresh your garden.
There are many new features to introduce you to. How about a quick tour?
In fancy website lingo, this is called the “nav.” Good navigation means the difference between you finding what you need on a website and not finding anything at all. On the new Shrub Source website you can search through all shrubs, vines, and edibles from handy drop-down menus. You can also shop shrubs by searching by common name and shrub attributes.
Create an account on Shrub Source (it’s free!) and you can start building your wishlist. Every shrub on the website has a link that you can click that says “Add to wishlist.”
Once you click, you’ll be taken to your wishlist Add comments to each shrub as you add it to the wishlist so you can remember where you’re planning to plant it and what you want to get to plant with it. It’s also a handy way to let someone know what you might like for a gift!
You can also hit a link that says “Add to Compare.” This will add a shrub to your compare list. You can then click on the right-hand column and “Compare Products,” which will bring a up a screen like this:
You can view pictures of the shrubs, see the prices, view hardiness zones, etc. It’s a great feature if you’re trying to decide between different plants, or look at plants together. By comparing them, you can check to make sure that all of their growing requirements are compatible.
Are you new to gardening? Want to learn about some new shrub types? Need to figure out some information about how to care for your newly-planted shrubs? Visit the new “Learn” section that puts everything you need to know about growing shrubs in one convenient place.
Keep an eye on that tab and check back frequently for new information!
Why a website devoted entirely to shrubs?
Shrubs are the unsung backbone of the garden. They are the workhorses. But, they can be so much more than just filler. Shrubs can be specimen plants—the plants that visitors look at and say “Wow!” Shrubs can attract butterflies, hummingbirds and other wildlife. Shrubs provide necessary cover for native birds and songbirds. You can plant shrubs for privacy hedging or to help with storm water management in low-lying areas of the yard.
Shrub Source only carries and delivers the best-quality name brand shrubs. You can find the newest varieties of shrubs from your favorite growers long before they hit the retail shelves in your area. We offer shrubs in quart and jumbo pots. These plants are ready to hit the ground growing!
