Armstrong Garden Centers recently announced they will mark 130 years serving California in the nursery business this month. As part of the anniversary celebration, the IGC will be giving away free rose plants at all store locations on Saturday, Feb. 29.

The celebration will also include:

  • Free landscape design drawing
  • Free cupcake treat at 1:30 p.m.
  • One-day 130th anniversary sale
  • Armstrong-grown 4-inch spring annuals on sale for $1.30 (regular price $1.99)

“As we reached a major milestone with our 130th anniversary, we are extremely grateful for the communities that support us and the hard work, dedication and loyalty of our employee-owners, who uphold the vision of our founder, John Armstrong,” said Monte Enright, president of Armstrong Garden Centers.

“Our most sincere gratitude goes out to each and every single one of our customers for helping us continue our tradition of horticultural expertise,” Enright said. “This 130th anniversary celebration is our simple way of saying thank you for their patronage and to know that we are committed to providing the best quality and service in the nursery industry.”

Armstrong’s first retail garden center was founded at 408 Euclid St. in Ontario, California. Along with his success as an industry leader in fruit trees and roses in the 1920s, John Armstrong developed a wide range of ornamentals and fruit trees, and was an innovator in flowering perennials, citrus, berries, grapes and avocados.
