I have a special place in my heart for Tagawa Gardens – it’s been a staple in Parker, Colorado since I was a little kid. In fact, when I was in the elementary school choir we would always have a Christmas time concert at Tagawa. As I have grown up I became fascinated with farming and gardening, so any time I need to get supplies this is one of the first spots I check out.
Tagawa Gardens sits just north of the town limit of Parker, off Parker Road and Broncos Parkway. Residing near the Cherry creek trail and Parker / Jordan centennial open space, Tagawa gardens is super easy to access with your bike if you’re taking a cruise up the trail. However, you’ll probably end up with a tray of veggies or soil so you may want to bring your vehicle! Tagawa has all sorts of items for the aspiring gardener, everything from house plants, an extensive collection of bonsai trees, tools, and in the spring time a huge assortment of transplant starters to get your garden a jump. They also feature a big variety of different trees and scrubs for your landscaping needs, and as a bonus you can purchase all the mulch you need from Bighorn Landscape materials, which is located adjacent to the greenhouses.
Since it’s almost spring time, there will be tons of activity here in the coming weeks! This is a great place to come with your gardening questions, as the staff are all very knowledgable and more than happy to help. I just took a recent trip here and purchased something new for me, air plants, (also known as Tillandsia) which I have populated in a glass terrarium along with some moss. It made a beautiful addition to my room decorations, and the staff were sure to help me learn how to properly care for these strange, rootless plants.
So, if you’re in need of anything garden related, I would highly recommend you take a stroll down to Tagawa Gardens. You can learn more about Tagawa gardens by visiting their website here.
