We love plants. We love to help our customers succeed with growing their new plants. So, we thought we’d share a bit more about the products we recommend using whenever new plants are planted.  

It can seem overwhelming at first.

“Why should I add all these powders, liquids, and blends to my soil?”

“Shouldn’t my plants know what to do naturally without all this extra stuff?”

The answer to both these questions can seem complex, so we wanted to break it down for you to understand why we recommend these products and how they truly do help your plants succeed. 

MYKE Tree and ShrubMYKE Tree and Shrub

First off is “the little blue tub” that we always recommend for eligible trees and shrubs called, aptly named, “MYKE Tree & Shrub.” Yes, it extends the warranty from a 1-year to a 5-year, but why?

MYKE Tree and Shrub is an all-natural growth supplement that contains biological fungi called mycorrhizae which is an inoculant that stimulates the existing mycorrhizae in the soil to produce more mycorrhizae. 

Why does a soil inoculant matter?

Soil is naturally teeming with bacteria and fungi, though most are neither beneficial nor harmful. Still, they play a subtle, yet vital, role in plant health by boosting the number of helpful organisms in the soil. By adding helpful bacteria or fungi to take up those tiny spaces, you minimize the risk of dangerous microorganisms taking up residency and potentially harming your plants. An easy-to-understand comparison would be an inoculation humans receive to ward off undesirable diseases, sort of like a flu shot.

When applied correctly, which is close to the roots during the transplantation (we recommend patting it directly on the root ball), Mycorrhizal fungi will start to germinate in the soil and make their way to the nearest roots. The roots are then colonized by the fungi and mycorrhizae is established. Upon establishment, mycorrhizae assist the root system through a more efficient uptake of water and nutrients for the plant.

Fertilome Root StimulatorFertilome Root Stimulator

Ok, I get it. Sort of. But if I’m using that, why would I also need fertilizer?

While MYKE has minuscule amounts of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium in it, it is not to be confused with fertilizer. It’s true that those minuscule amounts may be of minor help to the plant, but it is not a replacement for a good plant starter fertilizer such as Fertilome Root Stimulator.

Can’t I just use the same fertilizer I use for my lawn?

No, for new plants with tender roots, you want to use something formulated specifically for root growth. Fertilizers that are for established plants have higher concentrations of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, which can burn the tender root systems of new plants.

Fertilome Root Stimulator is recommended when transplanting to stimulate early root formation and development. It is perfect to use when transplanting trees and shrubs. In fact, it can also be used on berries, fruit trees, and flowers. In addition to the gentle fertilizer needed to give the plants a healthy, but not overwhelming, boost of nutrients, it includes an active ingredient called Indole-3-butyric acid.  

Indole-3-butyric acid is a plant hormone used to initiate root formation. It should be used one time after initial planting at the rate of 3½ tablespoons of root stimulator in one gallon of water. We recommend using this product for new plantings at the initial planting, then again in the fall when plants start going dormant and push their energy into root growth. Do not use this product excessively or in amounts higher than recommended as it can lead to root burn, nutrient toxicity, or dry and damaged roots. 

Awww, OK, that all makes sense. But with those products, why would I also need to amend my soil?

Unfortunately in the Salt Lake area, the soil structure needs help to allow for proper drainage along with nutrient density. We used to be a lake bed, a salty lake bed, so we have high alkalinity, poor drainage, heavy clay or sandy soil, and not a lot of organic matter to help break down the clay or hold moisture levels appropriately.

This is why, in addition to a mycorrhizal inoculant and a root stimulator, we recommend one of the following soil amendments to give your plants the best start possible, depending on which area you are in.

Our Recommended Soil Amendments:Garden Soil Amendments

These blends are fully composted composts with few or no raw wood products in them and create a wonderful soil environment for strong plants and healthy root growth. Additionally, they are OMRI listed for organic gardening and great for breaking up hard clay soils and improving drainage, which in return will promote healthy root development. We have found the best ratio for use is 1 part soil conditioner to 3 parts native soil.

Note: Using a product that is not fully composted will steal nitrogen from the plant you are trying to grow in the process of composting the raw wood in the material, so you will end up needing to add a nitrogen fertilizer to supplement the soil

In summary, key factors that will help your new plant to establish properly and successfully include a mycorrhizal inoculant, a root stimulator, and a soil conditioner.

Get ready to spring forward! Let's start planning your vegetable garden.

Even though Punxsutawney Phil said there would be 6 more weeks of winter, spring planting season will be here soon. 

In this blog, you’ll learn which vegetables will thrive in Utah and 3 harvest seasons to be aware of.

Vegetables that’ll flourish in Utah

When it comes to planning your vegetable garden, there are a number of growing styles to keep in mind to utilize your space effectively. Some of the most common are Root, Bush, and Vine.

Root vegetables, you guessed it, are the root of a plant. Some, like carrots, are taproots which will only yield one or two vegetables per seed or start. And some, like potatoes, are tubers that will yield multiples of a vegetable.

So, if you are growing taproot vegetables, you’ll need to plan for rows of multiple plants.  Although for tuber style, you can plant just a few starts for a hearty harvest.

Popular Utah Root Vegetables for home growing:

1 - Potatoes
2 - Beets
3 - Carrots
4 - Radishes

Bush vegetables grow on one plant that’ll stay in a shrub form throughout the season.  They are great options for smaller gardening spaces, or even for patio gardens.  

Great options for Bush-style cultivation:

1 - Tomato
2 - Beans
3 - Peppers
4 - Leaf Lettuce

Vine-grown vegetables tend to need more space, though some DIYers have found success with growing on trellises in smaller areas.

Fun vine vegetables to grow:

1 - Pumpkins
2 - Squash
3 - Pole Beans
4 - Zucchini

Plan with these 3 harvest seasons in mind

Every type of produce has a different growing season. You see, there are 3 categories to consider when you are planning so by the time you get to the harvesting, you have crops available on a rolling basis

Short-season vegetables:

Short-season goes from seedling to harvest in around 40 days and includes: 

1 - Arugula
2 - Lettuce
3 - Radishes
4 - Salad mix
5 - Spinach
6 - Turnips

These should be replanted again after the heat of summer passes for another crop later in the year.

Mid-season vegetables:

Mid-season goes from seedling to harvest between 40-80 days and includes (amongst many more): 

1 - Beans (bush and pole)
2 - Beets
3 - Bok choy
4 - Broccoli
5 - Cabbage
6 - Carrots
7 - Cauliflower
8 - Corn
9 - Cucumber
10 - Fennel
11 - Kale
12 - Peas
13 - Peppers
14 - Potatoes
15 - Summer squash
16 - Tomatoes

These make up the bulk of a garden to harvest in the summer, it is best to balance them with early and late harvests.

Late-season vegetables:

Late-season goes from seedling to harvest between 80-120 days and includes: 

1 - Asparagus
2 - Beans (dry)
3 - Brussels Sprouts
4 - Celery
5 - Garlic
6 - Melons
7 - Onions
8 - Peppers
9 - Pumpkins
10 - Shallots
11 - Sweet Potatoes
12 - Winter Squash

Though they take longer, they’re well worth the time and effort.

So are you ready to bring a little green into your life?

As planting season is around the corner, it's the perfect time to start planning your vegetable garden.

Don't worry if you're a seasoned or new gardener, Utah offers a bounty of options for your flourishing garden. You have hearty root, simple bush, and fun vine vegetables to choose from.

At Glover Nursery we have everything you need to get started, from soil and seeds to tools and expert advice. So you can enjoy a steady supply of fresh, delicious produce all three harvest seasons long.

Hello fellow gardeners! It's hard to think of spring when we're surrounded by so much SNOW! But here we are, reminding you that no matter how much snow is on the ground it will melt away come spring. And when that happens, one of the most important steps in getting our gardens ready is starting our seeds. After all, the growing season is right around the corner!

There are a few things to consider when starting your seeds, including:

In this blog post, we'll explore all of these topics. You'll be prepared to start your seeds and have a successful growing season!

What Type of Seeds to Plant

First, let's talk about how to pick seeds for your garden.

When selecting seeds for your garden, it is important to consider what type of climate you live in. If you live in an area with a short growing season, as we do here in Utah, you will want to choose plants that can be started indoors and then transplanted outdoors. Some examples of plants that can be started indoors and then transplanted outdoors include tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, and herbs.herb garden seeds

If you live in an area with a long growing season, you can start your seeds outdoors. Some examples of plants that can be started outdoors include squash, cucumbers, watermelons, and pumpkins.

It is also important to consider the amount of space you have available. If you have a small space, you can choose plants that thrive in containers or raised beds. Some examples include tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, herbs, and lettuce.

If you have a large space, you can grow just about any type of plant. However, it is still important to consider the amount of sunlight and water that your plants need.

Once you have considered these factors, you can choose the specific varieties of plants that you would like to grow. To find out more about specific plant varieties, consult a gardening book, online gardening resource or one of our experts here at Glover Nursery.

When to Start Your Seeds

Next, we move on to the all-important question of when to start your seedlings. Here at Glover Nursery, we recommend taking the last average frost date and counting backward as to how long that seed would need to germinate.

Our When To Start Your Seeds EquationAccording to the Farmer's Almanac, the average last frost date in West Jordan Utah is April 25. So, to get a good start ready for transferring outdoors we have an easy equation to help you. We recommend looking at how long something takes to germinate and adding a couple of weeks of growth onto that before transplanting it into the garden.

Here's a quick equation.

(Average Last Frost Date - Germination Time) + 2 Weeks = When to Start Your Seeds

Now that you know what to plant and when to plant it, you may be interested in learning how best to take care of your lil baby starts.

How to Start Your Seeds

There are a few key things to keep in mind when caring for your seedlings. The first is to make sure that they have enough light. Seedlings need a minimum of six hours of direct sunlight per day. If you do not have a place in your home that gets six hours of direct sunlight, you can use grow lights.

The second key thing to keep in mind when caring for your seedlings is to make sure that they have enough water. Seedlings should be watered daily, making sure to keep the soil moist but not soggy.

Finally, the third thing to remember when caring for your seedlings is to fertilize them regularly. Seedlings should be fertilized every two weeks with a balanced fertilizer.

If you're growing seeds for an herb garden we suggest you check out our blog post here. Herb gardens flourish with these specific guidelines.

By following these simple tips, you can ensure that your seedlings have a happy and healthy start to the growing season!

The seeds have arrived at Glover Nursery and we can hardly stand all the promise that the rows and rows of seed packets are giving off here.

If you're overwhelmed or looking to try something new this year we encourage you to stop by and chat with our knowledgeable staff. We love pointing out our favorite seeds for our local climate here in the Salt Lake City Valley. We may even have one or two surprises for the seasoned gardener.

Seedlings need a lot of care, but if you follow these simple tips you can ensure a happy and healthy start to the growing season!

Welcome to July, gardeners! Summer is in full swing and the days are heating up after a wet, cool spring. 

"And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer."

~  F. Scott Fitzgerald

Trees and Shrubs 

Temperatures are rising and insects are getting hungry! Keep an eye out for diseases and pests including powdery mildew, peach twig borers  (on peach, nectarine, cherry, and apricot trees), and codling moth (on apple and pear trees). The codling moth’s larvae are the ones to blame for wormy apples. 

Watch out for red spider mites. If you suspect that you may have spider mites, flick a branch or leaf onto white paper and look carefully to see if any of the specks move.

There are a few options when it comes to getting rid of spider mites. Consider using a hard spray of water to knock them back, dormant oil, or organic insecticides. 

Continue deep soaking newly planted trees and shrubs 2 to 3 times per week and fully established plants 2 to 3 times per month.  Check out our watering guide for more tips.


Remove faded flowers from annuals and roses to promote re-blooming. Removing the spent flowers will encourage the plants to produce more and more beautiful blooms. You can also remove spent flowers from your perennials, though it likely won't help to extend their bloom season. 

It may not be your favorite chore, but keep up on the weeding! A little prevention by pulling them early prevents weeds from going to seed.  Once they go to seed they’ll start growing like…well, weeds. 

Give your Hanging baskets and planters a refresh. . They may need some sprucing up. Cut back overgrown plants and replace any spent plants as needed. A few pops of new color mixed in with the cleaned-up flowers will keep your planters and baskets looking as beautiful as the day you bought them.  

Hanging baskets may need extra water in the summer heat so test the soil in the morning and again in the evening. 


A lot of folks are reducing (or even eliminating) lawn from their yards these days.  But, one thing to keep in mind - a healthy lawn does help to keep the yard cooler. 


Lawn care doesn’t have to use up excessive amounts of water. Creating a strong root system with healthy soil allows your lawn to look great with far less water than you might think.  Now is also a good time to apply products like Revive, Groundbreaker, Hydretain, and TurfMax - four products to help your lawn in the heat. 


  1. Ground Breaker - This product loosens compacted soil opening up pore space which allows for better water and air penetration.  It binds salt to itself and flushes it below the root zone.  It will help to normalize Ph and allows plants to have better access to nutrients.

  1. Hydretain - Hydretain is not another wetting agent, surfactant, or super absorbent polymer crystal. It is actually a liquid group of hygroscopic and humectant components that attracts moisture. In other words, by acting like tiny “water magnets,” they form microscopic droplets within the root zone. As a result, this process allows plants to utilize soil moisture that would otherwise be lost to evaporation.

  1. TurfMax - TurfMAX contains over 50 ingredients to treat and correct a wide range of factors that make grass unhealthy. It is the only product that addresses all the needs of lawns and the soil they grow in.

  1. Revive - Getting water to the roots is the secret of Revive’s success. Its unique formula allows water to move deeper down into the soil, bringing organic lawn fertilizers and air with it. This results in much stronger grass roots that produce a thick green, healthy lawn.

How crazy was the weather this spring?

It was certainly far from typical and it’s impossible to predict what's coming up. Let’s take a look at what this weather has done to our plants, and what to look for moving forward. 

How The Weather Has Affected Our Plants

This spring has been particularly cool and wet, especially compared to last year when we experienced one hundred-degree weather in the middle of May with almost no precipitation. While this spring has had significantly more rain we are still experiencing a drought so we recommend reviewing local watering guides

Because of the cooler spring weather, many plants took longer than normal to break dormancy. . For example, maple trees usually are fully leafed around mid-April but this year didn’t break dormancy until nearly the second week of May. 

Redbuds also had a rough go of this spring. Hard freezes arrived during its two major growth times, killing the flower buds and delaying the leaf buds from opening in their normal time frame

Additionally, it wasn’t warm enough for many Perennials to wake up and bloom when they normally would, so you still may not be seeing some of your favorites in the garden. The good news is,  that doesn’t mean that they’re dead. It just means patience is key so give things a bit more time to catch up. 

Many people use Mother’s Day as the season marker for planting.   However, this year we had a hard frost after that target date. You might have experienced damage in your veggie gardens, even if they were covered.  This will result in a shorter crop season, but you will still likely get a decent harvest

Tomatoes typically have a 10-12 week harvest season. This year it will most likely be closer to 6-8 weeks, especially if we get frost in September. 

June is a Perennial Month.  

Though it is almost at an end, June is known as Perennial Month.  While temps are starting to warm up for summer, it is still a great time to add perennials to the garden to enjoy the summer blooms and feed the pollinators. As perennials all have different bloom times, it’s a great idea to add throughout the season so you can have a variety of colors throughout the year.  

Keep An Eye Out for Heat Stress

With hot temperatures becoming more regular, it’s important to keep an eye on your plants for signs of heat stress. The shock of the temperature swing from the cooler spring can be too much for your plants. Signs of heat stress include: 

The best cure is always prevention. When possible, water your plants prior to 10 am, provide permanent shade, and mulch your plant beds and trees to keep the roots cooler. 

Morning watering is preferred so your plants don’t lose water to evaporation in the afternoon sun. Evening watering makes your plant more susceptible to fungus and pests overnight. 

It’s also worth looking into growing water-wise plants that are able to withstand extreme temperatures. 

Take a look at 7 Waterwise summer blooms for your garden here

What can you do if your plant has already experienced heat stress? It is possible for many plants to recover. 

Heat stress can happen to plants in temperatures starting at 85℉ so keep an eye on your thermometers.

If you have any questions about how your plants have been reacting to the weather, please feel free to reach out to the experts at our Utah garden centre as well!

March brings with it the glorious days of spring - the first official day of spring is March 20th. We are springing forward, days are getting longer, and plants will start peeking their way up through the soil. While we enjoy a few late winter blooms, like Hellebore and Pansies, it is time to start prepping your garden for the growing season. Below are some tips and tricks to help you get ready. 

Add these tasks to your March gardening “To-Do List”: 

Prune and Spray Your Trees

Prepare Your Trees

Early March is the time to prune peach, plum, cherry, and apricot trees. If you didn't prune your apple trees or other deciduous trees in February, prune them now as well. Apply Dormant Oil, also known as Horticultural Oil, to ornamentals, fruit trees, shrub and shade trees to help control insects such as aphids, scale, and mites that will be coming back in the spring. 

Ideally, you will spray when temps are above 40 degrees with no precipitation for 48 hours after application.  You can also spray Copper Fungicide this time of year, either 24 hours prior to the Dormant Oil application, or you can even mix them together and spray both products at the same time, just be sure to mix the proper ratio for each product separately before combining them in a sprayer. 


Prepare Your Garden Soil & Beds

Prepare Your Garden Soil & Beds

As the snow melts away, it’s time to remove the winter layer of mulch from around perennials and roses. Rake out debris from your flower and shrub beds. If you are planning on moving your perennials, do it now before they start to bud. 

Once the soil has dried out enough, nutrient-rich compost can be added to flower beds. Don’t work the soil if it’s too wet because it causes compaction (cement-like texture in  the soil). 

Apply fertilizer to your shrubs and perennials. Some garden beds may also need an application of iron in March.  If you do not plan on starting anything from seed, it's a great time to put down some Pre-Emergent to help prevent weed seed from germinating.  You can apply a granular formula or a liquid formula, depending on what is best for your circumstances.

Clean up Flowers

Prepare Your Flowers

Now is the time to prune your rose bushes, look for bud swell as your signal to prune.  It is also a great time to start pruning back the perennials leaves, stems and seed heads that were left over winter.  Summer flowering shrubs like potentilla and many spireas can be pruned at the end of March or early April. 

Start begonias, dahlias, and other tubers indoors for earlier blooms. For more on starting bulbs indoors, check out How to Start Seeding Indoors

Sharpen Garden Tools & Equipment 

Prepare Your Garden Tools

Before you need them, make sure your garden tools are still working and in good shape. Service your power equipment and sharpen your lawnmower blades. Now is also a good time to organize your tool sheds and storage areas so that come gardening time you won’t waste any time finding what you need. 

Getting back out in the garden has numerous benefits for our mental and physical health. Take care of these gardening items in March and springtime will be here before you know it. If you’re a newbie ready to start a garden, the team here at Glover Nursery are eager to help. Consider joining our Facebook community for a wealth of shared knowledge and be inspired by your fellow gardeners.

5 Things to do While Waiting for Spring

We are inching closer and closer to spring! 

It’s not spring yet but I swear we can already smell it. February is another month of maintenance and preparation to help ensure a successful growing season. We are gearing up at the nursery with new shipments of gardening tools, seeds, water plants, and more! We’re also bringing on new team members to help better serve the Utah gardening community come March and April. 

If you think you, or someone you know, would make a great fit here at the garden center, make sure to send in an application

Here are some of our top monthly tips for February but definitely check out even more seasonal planting tips & tricks.


Prune Shade Trees Pruning Trees for your garden

The end of February is the time of the year to prune your shade trees because they are dormant and less susceptible to bugs and disease. You can also prune apple and pear trees. When you prune, you will cut off broken or dead branches and trim the top branches. Make sure that your cuts are angled and clean. Pruning your trees encourages new growth so your tree can provide even more shade in the summer month.

garden pond maintenance checkCheck Your Garden Ponds

There are a few things to keep an eye on in February when it comes to your pond. Make sure to check the heaters and aerators often to make sure that they are working properly. Ponds also must have a hole in the ice to release noxious gasses that form from decomposing matter in the pond. Pond owners will also want to check for ice dams. Ensure they are not forming on waterfalls or streams that might divert water level over the liner.

I came by today to check out the sale. I almost turned around because the construction made it such... a pain to get there. The workers weren't very helpful, hence the low rating. I was right next to a lady who asked about the sales and one of the workers just told her to walk around. I bought a raspberry bush and they didn't give me the 30% off discount, but I had already left and didn't want to go back. Meh.read more

I only gave one star because you have to give at least one. If you are a contractor do not send... your customers here to find what they want. Their process of getting contractor pricing is a joke and they treat you like they don’t want your business. Plus they basically have armed guards protecting every exit that treat you like you are a thief. So if you are a contractor trying to make a living then I suggest sending them somewhere else. When I complained to them about the situation, they said that their sales are just fine without contractors. So I personally will never send another customer there. I hope other contractors will choose to do the same.read more

First of all, Glover nursery is great, they have vast array of trees, shrubs, plants,... "accessories", really just about ANYTHING you could want. There are an ample number of employees, who are knowledgeable, helpful and kind. However I'd like to single out one employee in particular, Kylie. I was looking for something related to gardening, but still a bit out of the "norm" for items that typically would be stocked at a nursery. Even though it was something they didn't sell (or make money on), Kylie took the time, made calls to help me find EXACTLY what I had been searching for, and then followed up promptly with me to give me the "source" who could provide it. To me, she absolutely went "above and beyond'! In the future I will definitely be going back to Glover!!!read more

Let me first say that I really liked your sales rep (Amber) outside of that, what an atrocious... experience! I fell in love with the scent of your climbing rose “Rise Up Amberness” so I bought one climber and one regular rose bush on Saturday. It’s now Monday and I had to throw both of them in the trash, which broke my heart.Most of the roses weren’t deadheaded properly, but figured I could simply fix that at home, boy was I wrong! I didn’t even have these roses for two days and the new blooms had wilted just like they had in your nursery. Upon further inspection, I found that there’s a thrip infestation! The wilted blooms weren’t spent blooms, but a result from a sick plant that shouldn’t have been sold in the first place, let alone at full price!I’m not new to gardening and understand that pests come with the territory, but why would I spend almost a $100 between these two bushes just to have to wean both back to health while possibly infesting the rest of my garden that I’ve worked so hard on?!If anyone would’ve even bothered to check to see why the blooms were wilting so quickly they would’ve seen what the problem was. Now I’m stuck with having to go to another nursery to fix a problem that should never have been mine to begin with.read more

For many years she’s been there to help me understand and pick the right thing to plant, patiently answering my dumb questions. I love my yard and have them to thank!read more

Stopped by on a whim, ended up buying a tree and 15 other plants for our yard. Amber was so kind... and helpful. we were very happy with what we chose. Since we weren’t planning on buying plants that day we did not have our truck with us, and it was Saturday closing time. The Employees were so kind and offered to hold our purchased plants until Monday when we could return to pick them up. When we came back to pick up the plants the employee at will call checked our receipt very carefully and informed us that there had been a mistake and we had been charged for the wrong tree. He said that we could not take the tree we had picked. I asked “well this is the tree we want, so what do we need to do?” He treated us like some sort of criminals!! This was not our mistake we paid what we were told on Saturday. He personally escorted us back to the cashier to pay the difference, like we were gonna make a run for it?! Not upset about paying the difference for the tree but upset with how rude the employee was toward us especially since this was their mistake.read more

What a great variety of healthy plants and trees! We didn't bring our truck, so we stuck with... smaller purchases this time. So organized that the large number of people were able to move around easily and checkout was pretty quick! They did run out of Basil, Cilantro, and I didn't see flat leaf Parsley. But it is getting that time of year and is to be expected.read more

Overall a 5 star experience most times, but I found it odd today when purchasing a plant that I'd... never grown before and needed information on. I stood in line at the info desk for awhile before an older gentleman employee asked me what questions I had. Instead of answering, he simply referred me to the planting instructions which came with the plant even after I explained that I'd read the plastic tab and still had additional questions that the tab didn't cover. Google was more helpful, but I wanted the experience from a grower for this region's weather/soil/environment.I'd purchased the plant already from them before waiting in line, otherwise I'd probably have just not bothered given the cost and their disinterest in wanting to help it grow.I'll still come back given the huge range of plants that are not always found elsewhere in the valley, but I wont' bother asking for help on a species.read more

Staying Closed on Sundays makes Saturdays so crowded that lines are uncomfortable and the tiny... parking lot is genuinely dog eat dog. They used to be open on Sundays. Gardening on a Sunday is an American tradition. Suffering on Saturday just to buy a few plants is the opposite of why people choose gardening as a hobby or past time.read more

We love Glover Nursery. We're from northern Davis County so we don't make it often, but when we do... it's a good experience. The ONLY reason for the lack of 5 stars, is because we've called ahead to confirm inventory and shown up to discover that the info over the phone was inaccurate and they didn't have what we asked for. I give the benefit of the doubt that maybe the items sold between our phone call and arrival, but in speaking to other employees they'd tell us they hadn't had them in stock for weeks.Oh well, they have an awesome selection of other items and the employees are always helpful and knowledgeable. We love coming here and looking around.read more

Huge selection and very helpful and knowledgeable staff. I’ve bought may plants from them and all... but one have survived, and it was hassle free to return the one that didn’t. I love that they have multiple size selections for plants so that I don’t have to get a tree that’s huge already if I don’t want to. I also appreciate that they label where things are at so that you can find things if you are looking for something specific.read more

I highly suggest this nursery - the only reason it only got a 4-star is because they are very... pricey. Great help, great products, just way too expensive. Parking is a real bear too - I'd suggest going off-hours for the best parking. Even on the busiest weekend, the employees keep up with the check out lanes so the wait to check out has never taken more than 10 minutes.Best nursery I've found in Salt Lake County.read more

We have been frequenting Glover Nursery quite a bit while we are re-landscaping out back yard. We... have found their staff to be extremely helpful and very honest. Their staff have guided us toward better plant selection many times to help meet our desire to have low-water plants as much as possible. They also offer up to 5-year warranties on many of their larger plants and trees, if you use certain products when planting. We will continue to return to Glover time and time again for our landscaping needs!read more

This is the third year in a row that we have purchased our Christmas tree at this nursery. We have... had very few issues with the trees themselves and the customer service here is top notch.The gentlemen who help take the tree to our car and tie it down are always very kind and professional. They do a great job every time. We haven't had any issues with the trees sliding around on the car and they have never caused any damage to our cars.The customer service has always been very professional as well. They are considerate people who always make sure we are happy with our trees.The only issue we had was the first tree we purchased from them. It did dry out a little quicker than we had planned but luckily it was very close to Christmas, so it was no problem. They have a good selection of trees and carry everything from little tiny two foot trees to enormous 10 foot plus trees.I highly recommend this nursery, not only for Christmas trees, but also for gardening all year long. The staff is always knowledgeable and great to work with.read more

This is a great local nursery. When you are ready to get better service and products than you can... find at the big box stores, great over to Glover. You'll find better service, better expertise, and surprisingly competitive prices. The plants are localized to our climate, instead of the Bonnie brand that everybody else sells and who knows where are grown. You'll find a large selection of fruit and ornamental trees, bulk soil amendments (bagged too), bedding plants, and the great variety of goods you'd expect to find at a large local nursery. I'm glad a rediscovered this nursery after Western Gardens closed our local store.read more

We've also used their delivery services and well as their planting services- both of which were wonderful! They arrive on time and the work is done very professionally. They also have staff that are very knowledgable about the plants and products they sell, which is something other nurseries are seriously lacking with their employees, so that's something I appreciate! All of our purchases from trees, to flowers to veggies have always done great, I couldn't rave about them more!read more

My girlfriend and I decided as first time plant buyers to make this the first nursery we visited in... our quest to find the perfect ensemble of pet safe, shade friendly, and easy to maintain plants because of the rave reviews Glover's has (which I spent an hour reading through simply because they were pleasant to read). Rett kindly greeted us within about 2 minutes of us starting to browse the rows and rows of plants. He asked what we were looking for. We explained and he quickly pointed us to which spots of the nursery would have plants fitting our criteria. He taught us where to look to find plant information which was very helpful to us newbies. He provided wise words: to start small with our plants and to grow our garden as we became more comfortable with our green thumbs. He answered every question we had with knowledge and the occasional--and very welcomed--joke! We will always come back to Glover's after this amazing experience on our very first visit. Thanks Glover's and thanks Rett!read more
