Ahhh...the demonic and manipulative Gretchen, Wicked Witch from the West! I've known Gretchen for quite sometime. Uncaring about everything, well, except herself. Desperately in need of anger management...in great need of developing her severely lacking and intolerable interpersonal skills. Being inhuman...she has absolutely no clue how to speak to humans. Gretchen completely exist in the delusional grandiosity of her "realm" and of her self-importance. Has a serious problem with maintaining a substantial or lengthy relationship with anyone, but especially men, unless of course they are gay. Rehoboth will tire of her as she wears-out welcome...as she ALWAYS does. Though Gretchen fools many unsuspecting "innocents", she doesn't fool everybody. Gretchen's ugliness has always surfaced.

That an evil person presents a facade of beauty is very well known. As Shakespeare's Hamlet said, "The devil hath power to assume a pleasing shape."

My father was one of the original owners of Garland's Garder Center andbest friends with Garland. The business was booming while he was there. There was a pointt in time when the business was slowing down so my dad sold his portion of the store back to Garland, allowing him to pay him back over several years to keep the business afloat. This, coincidently, was around the same time that Gretchen came into the picture. Now, I was young when all this happened but I distinctly remember gretchen to be one of the most manipulative, evil women I've ever known. For those of you who don't know, Gretchen was Garland's wife. In 2001, just a few weeks before 9/11, Gretchen left Garland with an ultimatum: fire Matt (my father), or she'd leave him. My father lost his job within a month. Shortly after that Gretchen left Garland and ran the business into the ground. I guess I can say I'm happy a few people had good experiences, but when gretchen took that store from my father, she took his heart too. I blame her entirely for my fathers depression in my later years. I'm 18 now and the only good memories of have of my dad were pre-Gretchen. My father passed away of a heart attack (or broken heart) eight yearsv later in 2008...
By the way, Garlands Garden Center went bankrupt years ago...all thanks to that sweet heart Gretchen..

I LOVED Garlands, but haven't been there in a while. When I went by today I saw it had been closed. The sign, though, said, "moving sale" so I was wondering if someone knows if they really moved or what? I can't find another location on the web, and from the other comments here it sounds like they closed. If you know, please leave a comment here. Thanks.

I, too, shopped at Garlands for 20 years, both when it was run by Garland and when it was run by Gretchen. All I can say is that when Gretchen ran it the selection was better, the place was better run and she was more knowledgeable than anyone I have ever known. I agree she did not suffer rudeness and fools lightly. If you were rude to her people she stood up for them. I wish my boss did the same for me! I had two delivery issues with Garland's and both times she got on the phone personally and addressed them herself. Both times everything was resolved within hours. Whomever has anything to say negative I've got to suggest that you might have been one of the fools! Too bad for you she is one of the best plant people I have ever know and to have her out of the business in Mayland (especially as a GREEN Garden Center) is a great loss. Suzanne

Garland's Garden Center was the best plant store in Maryland. The owner was kind decent helpful and mostly of sunny disposition and very very very smart. So sorry you had a bad experience but she did everything she could for me and my family during our time of bereavement. Intolerant of fools maybe, but sorely missed and well spoken yes! I can only say you get what you gave there and if you were rude you got asked to leave and take your business elsewhere. Welcome from someone who has dealt with retail Nazi's - IE people that think they can treat salespeople with disdain and careless indifference. I for one loved the knowledge and care they gave every plant and flower that came out of that space and whenever spring roles aroung I miss them dearly - John

Sadly this store closed due to mismanagement of things, people and most of all vendors. The owner just does not know how to treat people in a civil or non-sybil manner. The cats running around rampant were gross and grazed on food and coffee set out for customers. mmm yummy.
It used to be a great store when Garland ran it.
Good riddance Gretchen.

The store is awesome- well decorated, the plants are well taken care of- however the owner makes buying a plant feel like buying soup from the soup nazi.

Not just a bad day- I've experienced it and so have alot of my friends and family. Maybe she should stop and smell her roses.

This had to be the worst floral experience of my life. It happened today, the day before Valentine's Day. The day that should have been special to my mother. My mom has done a lot for my sister and I over the years, and to show our appreciation I ordered her flowers. The florist chosen happened to be Garlands. Needless to say, first the item arrived less the bear and chocolates it was supposed to come with. The the beautiful tulips and stargazer lillies i ordered were replaced with daisy's and carnations. I called the florist and asked them to change it and resend it, not only did the woman yell at me, and hang up she said she wouldn't honor it and she wouldn't send the bear or the chocolates. When 1800 flowers got involved she yelled at them and hung up as well. My order was changed to a new florist and i kept the cheap flowers Garland sent, however all i can say is if your looking for good service and someone helpful this should be the last place you look if you want to make your day memorable.

Garland's is a neat place for trendy gifts for the garden, etc. They have nice looking plants and others that appear to need some attention. I needed help finding the tree that I wanted and couldn't find anyone outside to do so, so I found it necessary to go inside to get help. The owner came outside with me and was quite helpful. When I checked out, I was told the tree would be delivered next week. On Friday of the next week, I called because I hadn't heard anything, nor received the tree. The lady said that maybe they could deliver it the next day and would get back to me. Now, it's the next Monday and I still haven't heard anything. Here goes another phonecall...

Garland's doesn't look like much from the road, but there is a good sized garden center hidden behind that facade. The staff is friendly. They aren't all knowledgeable, but they will get you connected with the right people to answer your questions. There is a good selection of plants that will grow well in the area.

During the fall they hold a 50% clearance on the nursery plants. I picked up a beautiful large rose bush at a steal of a price. Definately worth a stop by.

Garland's is an overpriced garden center located in Westview. They offer perennials, trees, and shrubs as well as a christmas garden and a full service florist. Their shrubs are higher than most other garden centers. They have an annual auction in the fall that you can usually get good deals. However, they often carry something that I can't find elsewhere.

PROS:
CONS: high prices

Garland's is a good place to shop and they offer a good variety of items for your garden and unique items for the holidays. It is especially nice to visit during the holiday season. The displays inside the store are very nice to browse and you can find good prices on some things. It is worth a trip to check them out.

Garland's is more than a garden store, they are a family tradition you'll want to start. They offer a wide variety of services - they are a florist as well as a nursery and have extensive landscape and design services as well. Their facility is huge and well organized. It's inspirational just going inside! Sometimes they even have a little petting zoo in the back, making it even more fun for the kids! They are convenient to the beltway and have plenty of parking and staff appropriately for peak activity.
