Grow your own fresh, delicious veggies! Kids who participate in growing vegetables are more likely to eat them and there's nothing like a juicy, fresh tomato from the garden. Homewood carries a great selection of vegetables in spring and early summer including peppers, squash, zucchini, okra, cucumbers, eggplant, and, of course, tomatoes. We have the advantage of our own greenhouses, so, every year, we select specialty, hard-to-find varieties suited for our area that we start from seed and grow in order to offer them to our customers.

In season outside in our Nursery Department, you'll find blueberry, raspberry, and blackberry bushes, muscadine and scuppernong grape vines, persimmon, fig, and pomegranates. Homewood is committed to carrying only those fruits that are suited to our climate and will do well here without a ton of spraying.
