All things homey at Linton’s

Linton's Enchanted Gardens

Breeze through Linton’s Enchanted Gardens and you’ll find everything from home decor to plants to accessories such as coveted Vera Bradley handbags. You’ll find out why Linton’s is far, far more than a garden center. (Oh, and you can recharge with a snack at the Garden Cafe while you’re at it.)
