What Our Clients Have to Say

Zehr’s has a wonderful, reasonably priced assortment of garden plants and the staff is friendly and helpful. I’m already planning on going back next spring.


When I shopped at Zehr’s I was greeted by a worker with the friendly, “Is there anything I can help you with?” greeting and then escorted to the area where the specific shrub I was looking for was located. It saved me time and I greatly appreciated that!


I greatly enjoy the memorial garden you created for me and have received many compliments, thank you and to the polite and helpful crew, thank you! You went above and beyond!
