Starview Greenhouses, Nursery, Garden Center and Gift Shop in Henry County
If you have a green thumb and love making your part of the great outdoors beautiful, Starview Greenhouses, Nursery, Garden Center and Gift Shop has everything you need and more. Located just
across the Henry County line at 10082 KY Hwy 146 in Lagrange, Starview is easy to find and well worth
the scenic drive.
On site, there is one large greenhouse of annual flowers – hanging baskets of flowers, flats of flowers,
potted flowers – in every size, shape and color imaginable. There are two other greenhouses of
perennials broken down in to three categories – shade, partial sun, and full sun. Yet another
greenhouse is devoted to herbs, vegetables, and small fruits. Their gift shop is filled with whimsical
garden décor to outdoor rugs to seeds and anything else a gardener could need or want! There is also a
pottery shop and area dedicated to trees and shrubs.
The shopping process is pretty simple. While there are no carts, there are flats you can fill then take to
the loading area with numbered benches in the main garden center. The staff will assign you a number
and take your selections there to be held. Then, you can go shop more. As you accumulate goodies, the
staff will help you carry them back to “your area” on the bench. When you are done, a staffer will
generate a ticket that you can take to the gift center to check out.
The staff are not only incredibly knowledgeable about all their products, but they are incredibly friendly and
always happy to help. And, from my experience, the quality of the plants is unsurpassed. With
Mother’s Day just around the corner, let your kiddos help clear a spot out and then head out to Starview
to pick out some flowers to plant together!
My kids, ages 9, 8, and 4 loved checking out all the plants with me. Make sure you hit the restroom
before you go if your kids are uncomfortable with portapots – like 2/3 of mine are. We spent about an
hour and a half looking in all the greenhouses and choosing vegetables for our garden. We’re planning
another trip for more flowers too! It can get hot (because, you know – greenhouse) but there is a shade
house and you can always find a cool breeze.
This family owned garden spot has it all! You can check out their website at
