Tropical Indoor Plants

Our greenhouse is stocked weekly with new and interesting tropical plants from around the world. Browse our unique spring plants, including African Violets, cacti, orchids, palm trees, bonsais, dish gardens, and other blooming beauties & lush green specimens.

Garden Accents

From small garden herb labels, to bird baths, to that new trowel or weed cultivator thing-a-ma-jig, you will find lots of fun and eclectic gifts for the gardener.

Pottery and Containers

From that special orchid pot to decorative cast iron urns, Oakland's pottery area covers all of your container needs. Look for specials in our glazed pottery area for spring flower potting and container gardening. We also still have a large selection of garden statuary, fountains and benches.

Wild Bird Supplies

In this season of good will, let's not forget our neighborhood wildlife. Winter is a time hardship for birds that stay in Ohio. A supply of wild bird feed and water can bring life and color to the backyard. Oakland has a great selection of bird feed always in stock.
