Nina Radley

Really knowledgeable staff, great selection of plants that grow locally. I love that they grow stuff organic. I would like to see availability and prices online, but it gives me an excuse to go in and the staff is pretty helpful when you call.

Great place for gardening

Hannah Way

I am a novice gardener, and went here today with hopes somebody could help me figure out what to plant given my soil type and lack of skills. Maya was so helpful! She walked me around and showed me various options, comparing the pros and cons of each. She was so knowledgable and friendly, I will definitely be back when I need more supplies.

Carol Wills

So many choices and great prices.

Brent Buzbee

Great place! They have a huge selection at very reasonable prices. They just installed a new tree in my front yard and did a great job. Great classes and community involvement. Stop by and see for yourself!

Karson Rodgers

Phelan Gardens provides beautiful and very healthy plants to it's customers. The prices are great as well! I purchased a fiddle leaf fig back in August of 2018 and am so happy I did! I don't go anywhere else for plants. I highly recommend to anyone interested in adding a variety of healthy plants to visit Phelan Gardens.

Tim Seehafer

We recently purchased two tress from this nursery. This was the second set of two trees within a couple of weeks, On both occasions they were two hours later than we were told. In the first instance they brought some scraggly tree that I did not buy and they said my tree I paid for was sold to someone else and would I accept this tree which I did not. They went back to the nursery to get another tree and subsequently found my tree moved somewhere they didn't see it. They returned and completed the job. The second time again two hours late. They planted the trees, didn't stake them or water them which I paid for. I asked them to do so and they just left. I called the owner Mark Phelan and all he could say was they had a "bad day." He accepted no responsibility for their actions. He said he would send someone out the next day to stake the trees and water them. A person showed up and didn't stake the trees or water them and left. I have been doing business with Phelan Gardens for six years. I spend a significant amount of money each Spring and Summer at Phelan Gardens. However, after three lack luster performances and the the owner not accepting responsibility for their poor work or offering some credit for the mistakes, I will no loner do business with this company and I recommend you do the same. They charge a ridiculous amount of money as it is to plant a tree and this is what you get in return.

This review has been a long time coming. I’ve been shopping at Phelan for over five years. I have furnished my house and land with their offerings. Everything I’ve ever acquired has been in exquisite condition and continued to thrive once home. Every time I go in, I am welcomed by an informed staff. Rest assured any question can be answered. I’ll continue to purchase and bring friends to enjoy the experience with me!

Steve Groothuis

Excellent products and experienced staff. Best nursery in NE Colorado Springs.

Jennifer Samson

Good selection of perennials and houseplants!

Jennifer Koslowsky

Please support this company! They are nothing less than amazing. Mark, one of the owners, came out with his sister, another owner, as well as her son, after we had some questions/concerns about the planting of a couple of trees purchased from them. This was after Mark had already made a special trip out to our place to check on things while we were on vacation and I had called his office with some questions. To get a call back from the owner and two special trips made out to our place is more than you will get from any company nowadays. We have purchased from Hardings in the past and their customer services pales in comparison to Phelans. And while out looking at the two trees, Mark even looked at a cottonwood which is actually on city property and gave me his thoughts on that...for free of course! And then his sister helped to teach me about how to properly prune our old apple tree which wasn't even purchased from them! Amazing, down to earth, and so kind. Give them your business! You will be 110% satisfied! Thank you Mark and family!

Gabby Peterson

Great staff, great plants, great atmosphere! This is my favorite place to go now! No more going to lowes for my planting needs!

Shane Michael Richburg

Kerry MacIntyre

My favorite local garden center! Huge selection, very helpful staff. Prices are sometimes slightly higher but they live and don't need to be replaced, so I find it cheaper. My kids love to see their chickens!

Monica was exceptionally knowledgeable and patient in assisting me with my purchase, unfortunately the HOA intervened and I was not able to follow through with the purchase. I appreciate their understanding.

D. Pierce Channel

This is a hidden gem of a nursery! The staff are warm and greeted us immediately upon entry. The plants and flowers are healthy and the prices are very agreeable. So many types of annuals and perennials, shrubs and ornamental plants. They have supplies and hardware for the garden. Large and small garden accessories, statues of gnomes and mushrooms painted and unpainted. All in all, this was a fantastic nursery, I will be a customer here for many years to come! Thanks, the plants we bought are awesome!

Jake P.

The trees I've purchased from Phelan Gardens have enjoyed the single highest survival rate compared to all other purchases from other local garden shops. High quality products with an outstanding flourish record. Phelan Gardens is one of the very few garden shops I can in good conscious recommend.

Lexi Fratz

Awesome experience! We met with Alex, who was working in the tree area, and he was extremely helpful in giving us knowledge of what to plant. We had little knowledge, but Alex knew all about them and provided great insight. We learned a lot. He was super friendly. The nursery has a lot of variety of all different types of plants. Highly recommend!

Always helpful and knowledgeable.

Naomi Clark

Wonderful and unique plant selection. Friendly staff who take the time to help customers with any question or issue. Well cared for plants, and great variety. Reasonable prices, I have visited other nurseries who charge extremely high prices and advise that's just the way it is. Definitely my new go to place for my plant needs/addiction. :)

King Yahtzi

It must be a wonderful place, my wife spends a lot of money here.

Colleen Froehlich

I've been here twice so far and have been above and beyond impressed both times. The staff are so helpful and kind. I even came in 5 mins before closing stressed and in a rush to grab a few things before they closed, but the manager (who has personally helped me both times) did not rush me at all and gave me his time to tell me how to take care of the plants I got. I am so impressed with the staff AND the selection of plants and will definitely keep coming back.

Pat Nielsen

Great people willing to answer my stupid gardening questions.

Linda DeBenedittis

Purchased some Mock Orange, a Spirea Bush, several Rose Bushes, some May Night Salvia, & several Columbine last June. Though the Mock Orange looked like they would die, losing ALL their leaves, we "nursed them along" & they have literally "restored themselves" to go on & grow all new leaves. They look like nothing ever happened at all now! The staff at Phelan were very helpful in giving us advice as we did not want to lose these bushes. They are a shrub I rememberd fondly from my childhood back some 50+ years. In the end everything we bough has done extremely well!!! I am so glad we were able to talk with someone who could help us with our struggling Mock Orange too. I definitely will be making them my "go to" place for all my Plant & Garden needs from now on!!! Thankmyou Phelan Gardens for you very helpful advice!

Mark White

Super friendly and helpful people! We were looking for a live tree. They explained all the different types and how big they would get. Also told us what size pot to get. Lots of nice plants and decorations.

Cyan Johnson

I just recently purchased a peace lily from them because I recently became a house plant addict and I had a great experience. When I first started I would get my plants from Lowes or Home Depot and would constantly see sick and dying plants. It was refreshing to see plants that are thoroughly being cared for. The variety of plants they offer will have me coming back for sure (I'm keeping my eye open for a Christmas cactus). The staff was super nice and helpful when picking out my plant. Buying from a local family based nursery id also big plus. I highly recommend

Susan Taylor

I really liked this garden shop. You can meander through out the area and feel like you're in another world. The staff are very helpful. There's quite a nice assortment of outdoor and indoor plants.

Meredith Hamas

I love coming to Phelan! We got all of our water plants here. Water lilly, hiacynth, water lettuce, and cardinal flowers! We got 2 baby grape vines here and they are now producing beautiful grapes! There are certain plants that we look for sometimes and you always have them!! Thank you!

Christine Danielson

Great selection, helpful staff. They offer cool classes as well, like their NASA air purifying plants class. I always buy from Phelan when I want high quality house plants. They never have bugs or pests like other places- clean plants, beautiful indoor and outdoor plant nursery, reasonable prices. Lots of unique healthy plants.The guy at the counter even helped me carry out all my items which were heavy and bulky. What an awesome shop.

Nathan Lungstrum

jim brandt

This was our first visit and I was very impressed. We do all our own landscaping and they have a great selection of flowering bushes, and a great selection of trees as well as flowers and garden plants. ALL the plants, bushes, and trees were very healthy. You could close your eyes and make any pick and be happy with your selection. The staff were very knowable, and friendly and we made some different choices based on their information. I which I had taken some pics, to busy enjoying all the stuff. Next time for sure.

Stewart Kett Laughlin

My favorite greenhouse. Always very cool plants here year round. In spring, be here early to get your veggie pla nts. Very knowledgable staff, very friendly.

Mary L

Nice selection of plants. I would like to see organic available. However for how many pesticides they treat their plants with, every time I come home with some sort of pest... nats, spiders or spider mites.

Jessica Enriques

Love this great nursery! Friendly staff, very informative. Always have great things in stock.

Anthony Bruhl

When in to get help with my bonsai tree. They where helpful and helped me get my tree back to being health. And they did not push items that I would not need.

Kentucky Trader

My first visit here I was looking for some different plants for my terrarium. I found and purchased several. They were nice and healthy and I was pleased with my purchase. While there I looked around and there is a nice assortment of plants and all kinds of supplies available. The staff is knowledgeable and very friendly. I'll be going back here for my planting needs.

Rick Anderson

Carol Benson

Very disappointed that the employee answering the phone at Phelan Gardens had no idea what the prices were on the peaches for sale that are still advertised by many signs along Austin Bluffs Parkway. Told me I had to find out by going to Facebook. I don't use Facebook. Just lost a good sale!

Michelle Ellis

Vee G

I’m so happy I stumbled upon this garden center! They have such an amazing selection of healthy, beautiful plants. It’s like walking into a jungle in the greenhouse. Also the staff have been so helpful, they’ve given me several tips on how to care for my plants. Will definitely be back!

Tammy Smithson

Enjoyed making my own succulent garden! Friendly staff.

John Papp

I like Phelan Gardens, I really do. I love the idea of a family owned local business -- and I want to support them even if it costs me a bit more to do so. We bought six trees for our back yard remodel in mid 2017. By the next summer, two of the trees had died and one was struggling mightily. So Phelan Gardens came out and replaced the two dead trees and told us to be patient on the 3rd tree. Now it is the spring of 2019 and we have three thriving trees that have grown very well over the years and three trees that are either dead or simply not thriving / growing. Phelan says sorry, we have a one year warranty and you are out of luck. I think their course of action is shortsighted.

Brady Smith

Beautiful place! It is so peaceful and filled with so many plants and flowers to choose from! Great service too, I was able to get what I need and everything was in beautiful shape.

Gordon Otis

Healthiest plants in Colorado Springs!

Kaytlyn Weiss

Our absolute favorite plant store in the Springs. Huge variety, and the staff is beyond helpful. They even let us shoot our daughter's first birthday photos here! Photos by Eleven Moons Photography, LLC.

Maria Rojas

Very helpful and knowledgeable staff. Love it ! I will be back to this location.

Shoshana Wellen

Beautiful selection and really friendly and knowledgeable staff. Phelan Gardens really makes Spring the best time of year for our family. So nice to be out in the garden and glad to have Phelan in our back yard providing us with fantastic customer service and a wonderful selection of flowers, plants and tools. I also really appreciate the free advice, I've called over several times and the staff has always been happy to lend their expertise.

Darla Fernandez

Went to a class by Andrew and came out with alot of ideas!

Shandi Wallace

Fantastic place for the plant lover! I love the people here - they are so friendly and helpful, even if you are clueless like me. :) Truly, a wonderful place!

Sierra Taylor

We have been dying to get 3 trees for our bare backyard and front yard! This place was awesome and they let me know about a 20% off earth day sale over the weekend! I saved so much money and the trees are beautiful! We planted them on Saturday and hoping they turn out wonderful!

Thom Phelps

In my neighborhood, with a great selection of plants and landscape accessories, Phelan Gardens is my go-to local garden center. Not the biggest nursery in town, but they have really experienced staff who can answer my questions and give me tips on keeping my plants healthy and happy. They're my first stop for garden gnomes, too!

Katrina Krakowiak

Phenomenal customer service! And the staff is wonderfully knowledgeable. THE place to go for all your gardening needs.

Kim Hackman

When you walk into Phelan Gardens it's like walking into a small tropical paradise in the middle of Colorado Springs. The greenhouse provides warmth and humidity as you stroll amongst the green plant sea. Cactus, air plants, bonsai, trees, bushes, flowering pants, plants that have little yellow goldfish blossoms (what?!), Philodendron, and succulents are just the beginning of the variety of plants! That's just in the green house! Inside are the friendly and knowledgeable staff who can answer most anything plant related. One-of-a-kind gifts, pots, soil ,worms and wall art for your choosing. Head outside and you can see all the outside plants and tree AND the chickens. Yes, that's correct, I said chickens. A trip to Phelan Gardens renews my soul!! I would recommend it to everyone!!

lupe Silva Rivera

Megan B

We love Phelan, they always have what I'm looking for. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

Sara Johnson

Great selection of succulents and houseplants in March. Employees were friendly and very helpful.

Kitty Morel

My favorite place for all things to do with gardening. Today I was Enchanted by the chickens running around!

Valerie Burchett

I feel comfortable in this garden store. I'm an amateur gardener and I can take them photos or clippings of my plants and they offer advice on how to remedy it. Plus they don't make you feel dumb for over-watering your potato vine. The only thing I don't like is the entrance as its off a busy road so be mindful of that.

Kim Baumgartner

They had exactly what I was looking for and the prices were a steal! I also had the pleasure of being there during a thunderstorm, and that turns the green house into a magical land.

mike mcgee

Great neighborhood nursery. Very helpful and friendly staff. Highly recommended

Branden Heinz

Super helpful and welcoming. My first time there they walked me through a ton of different plants that would suit my taste and ability level. The second time I was excitedly shown their mantis eggs hatching.

larry yochum

Clean, friendly. Pleasant place to shop.

thomas enright

A few days ago I was there with my cranky teenage daughter. I left with a box full of pepper plants and an aloe Vera plant and a happy daughter - great quality for the plants purchased. Somehow the atmosphere makes even a teenager happy!

Ben Word

I drive past other nurseries and across town to come here because it's the best. The staff are always helpful and friendly, there's an incredible selection, and they also offer classes!

Ryver Otter

I honestly recommend this nursery. I'm very new to the world of plants. Went in looking for some hard to kill house plants. All of the employees were very helpful in figuring out what would work in different rooms of my home. Finding the right soil. Very patient with my questions. They didn't even try to use my lack of knowledge to sell me the most expensive plants. This will be my go to nursery as my confidence with plants grows. I know I can rely on their knowledge to make the right choices.

Chris T

Absolutely love this place! Very friendly service and well organized and fun store!

Andrew Vezey

Very helpful staff with good selection. Had lots of fun stocking up our garden for the season!

Bert Fitzpatrick

They are great for advice, helpful suggestions and designs. Prices are average with similar stores, but there knowledgeable staff makes it the go to place

Melissa Sullivan

Love it here

Judith Sharp

Customer service is like a lot of places in the Springs to "outsiders" they must have a great Colorado customer base as they seem mostly indifferent to a repeat customer over the last 5 years. With their brand of "servive" I w3ill head back to Home Depot, where at least the price matches.

Bob Bobbington

Great place and great prices... often beating those big box stores in price and quality. They also offer classes, even kids' classes.


They have very inconvenient hours. Nice selection, but is not laid out in the most efficient way possible. Service is slow in the off-season.

Marina Kovshar

Beautiful place to get ready for holiday!!!

Shannon Rash

I love Phelan Garden. They are so friendly and the plants are beautiful. I recommend going.
