The Arbor Gate in Tomball, TX...Flowers, Plants and a Bit of Whimsy


Sometimes you need more than what the big box stores have to offer. That is especially true when you’re working on landscaping your yard and you need to know what to put where! 


The Arbor Gate in Tomball, TX is just that kind of place!


The Arbor Gate

What impressed me about The Arbor Gate, besides the numerous referrals I’d been given by the locals, was that when I called about a particular plant, a very polite person said they would check and call me back. And...they did!!!! 


There are numerous plants as well as supplies and there are real people who know about plants and can answer your questions about which plant to put where depending upon your sun exposure and what you want to achieve. 


But be sure to allow time to see all of the whimsical treasures that are scattered throughout the property as well as in the well-stocked shop.

I love places like Arbor Gate.  Not just a nursery, but a source of garden whimsey.

Good morning, Kathy- - -it's rather "telling" about ourselves and life that we are amazed when people do what they say they will, act/actually be informed, interested, enthusiastic, follow through effectively and other practices collectively known as common sense of sorts. Your experience is a good lesson for each of us on many levels.

Being a small town guy, I definitely prefer places like this to the big box stores.  I try to avoid big box stores as much as possible. haha.

I love these types of stores, and your description of the call back would put them on my list of favorite places.  Service is always the winning ticket.  A

Kat Palmiotti I can't wait to go back. There were so many plants I saw that would work well in our front yard. 

Donald Urschalitz we looked everywhere for this particular vine and they had 2 kinds of what we wanted.

Nina Hollander it can be but what I like is that you can ask anyone there for help and they actually know about plants. 

Myrl Jeffcoat Larry had to drag me out of there because a thunderstorm was headed our way.

Barbara Todaro isn't it fun to find businesses like this!

Michael Jacobs you're right about that. I wasn't sure if we'd receive a call back and was so happy when I did. Unfortunately that isn't always the case. 

Jeff Dowler, CRS thanks for the reminder. Going to do just that!!!

Brian England i'm with you on that one. Sometimes we don't have a choice but I'm glad we found this nursery. 

Ron and Alexandra Seigel I was reminded of the place that you and Ron like to stop by.

HI Lottie Kendall and it is fun just to walk through the nursery. Of course, it makes you want to go home and start planting.

Good afternoon Kathy - the fact that they did what they said they would do is certainly big.  If they have good merchandise then it is a home run.

Morning Kathy.

I know I don't want to take my wife there.  We wouldn't have room to put our luggage in, she would buy them out.
