Where a love for plants runs deep.

Our mission at Glover Nursery is to help inspire and create beautiful landscapes for our customers by having the best products available and sharing our knowledge and experience with our community.

We've been fortunate over the past several decades to help entire generations of Utah gardeners fall in love with gardening. The past several years have brought an entirely new kind of gardener to our garden center.

You're fairly new to gardening, excited to learn, open to new plants and landscape ideas and most of all have found that gardening is more than just dropping a plant in the ground.

Gardening can...

  • Improve your homes value
  • Relieve stress
  • Build a Family Hobby
  • Help you save money on electricity (gardens help cool your home)
  • Help you save money on food (fresh garden produce is the best)
  • Is good for your health!

Whatever your reason for gardening, we decided that we want to help you grow in your love of this hobby. So, Glover Nursery 101 was born.

Glover Nursery 101 is a seasonal based gardening education system.

Each month includes a lecture about the goals to be achieved for the health and longevity of your plants. You will also receive weekly assignments that can include research for your garden, clean up or preparation tips, planting directions, watering instructions, pests and disease management, and even a BONUS field trip recommendation.

When you become a Glover Nursery 101 student you will leave class feeling more confident in your gardening skills. We hope this leads to more enjoyment of your garden because at Glover Nursery we believe that a love for plants runs deep.

We've got A's for your Q's

How much does it cost?

Class is FREE! We created this series to help the new or novice gardener feel more confident in their gardening choices.  

How do I know it's for me?

Have you ever gardened, wanted to garden, bought a plant or dug a hole? You're in the right place! Courses are built so that everyone from the gardening enthusiast to the veggie garden curious will improve their skills.  

Does it matter if I'm new to gardening?

Nope! If you're just getting started, we're so excited that you'll be able to prevent yourself from some classic "new gardener" mistakes.

How much do I have to participate?

It's totally up to you. We think you'll have more fun if you come to class each week, try and implement the homework exercises and join the private Facebook group but you can also just watch the videos.

When can I get started?

Right away! As soon as you sign up we'll send over your Orientation. Our first class starts on October 6th and course content will be updated weekly after that.

Does my location matter?

Anyone who loves gardening will get a lot out of this course but our garden center is located in West Jordan, Utah and a lot of our plant selection and care advice is tailored to West Jordan, Salt Lake City and surrounding areas.  

How often are classes?

We’re setting up our course as if we were going back to school. Each month there will be a one hour lecture about your focus and then weekly assignments and instructional videos you complete on your own. Bonus suggested field trip or activity if you would like to deepen your knowledge.


What kinds of assignments will there be?

Assignments will range from creating a map of your yard to establishing proper water techniques.  

What am I going to get out of this?

Connect with a community of like minded gardeners that you can learn and grow with.

What if I can’t attend a class live?

All classes will be in our private Facebook Group for you to attend either live or to view the recording.

Class Starts October 3rd
