Whether you’re an experienced gardener with a beautiful collection of unusual plants, a beginner learning the basics, or someone who just wants your yard to look nice, we think you’ll find a visit to Egan Gardens worthwhile.
Our sales are on-site only; we don’t do any online orders or shipping of retail products.
Our retail side is open Monday-Saturday 9 am to 5 pm, Sunday 10 am to 5 pm.
Our wholesale side is open all year, Monday – Friday 8 am to 4:30 pm.
Summer’s over, and it has actually rained! The fall crops of pansies, garden mums, ornamental kale and overwintering foliage – Heucheras, grasses, etc. – are ready. The fall-winter baskets are planted, filled-out and ready. Mums will be available through mid- October, and pansies all the way through October. Remember the retail sales officially close October 17th, but we’re still around on weekdays after that.
Speaking of rain, that annual indicator of the change of seasons here in the Willamette Valley, we have finally had enough (600% of average month-to-date as I write this on Oct.16th) to relieve us all of watering obligations. Our plants can find it for themselves now. But there are other ways we can help our gardens in the fall. I hope you’ll be able to join us for the last classes of the season before we close down the retail sales until next March 3rd. Here’s the information for the fall perennial care class in case you can’t make it on Sunday. For the rose class, I’ll need to bug Vance to get his hand-out on this site. Sorry.
Closing Weekend Final Two:
Saturday Oct. 15, 2 pm
Putting Your Roses to Bed for Winter
Our rose expert, Vance, will guide you through what to do when for the best health and re-growth of your roses next year. Free. Please call to register.
Sunday Oct. 16, 2 pm
Perennial Care in Fall and Winter
Join Ellen in a discussion and demonstration of perennial plant dividing, cutting-back, pest prevention and myth-debunking. Free. Please call to register.
Most classes are free. We appreciate a phone call for registration so we know how many handouts to have printed and chairs to set out if it’s a sit-down kind of class. 503-393-2131 ext. 2.
We have a fairly regular schedule

The newest addition to our grounds and amenities is Thornton Park, named for my Scottie, Thornton. It’s a fenced area on the edge of the Perennial Field, with shade trees to lie under, lawn to run and tussle in, a flower bed to dig up and destroy, and a water bowl to get the mud off his tongue after that digging. Visitors’ dogs are welcome to join him in the park; he’s friendly with everyone and loves having company. If you have a dog who wants to go with you wherever you go, bring him/her along to play in Thornton Park while you shop.
