Garden Fever has a decidedly green approach to backyard horticulturalism. The store encourages gardeners to plant pollinators, hosts free seminars and has banned neonicotinoids from its shelves. The deceptively large retail space holds a comprehensive nursery, seeds, tools and guides, and offers such varied programs as an annual book soiree, garden tours, conservation classes and a Hardy Plant Society after hours.
