No matter what day of the year you visit, you’ll always find something new and interesting at Vandermeer’s!

Accessible Customer Service Plan

Vandermeer Nursery is committed to excellence in serving all customers including people with disabilities. We currently have a rolling (4-wheeled) walker with a seat available that may be used by customers with disabilities while shopping at Vandermeer Nursery. We will ensure that our staff are trained and familiar with this device. Please ask a staff member if you wish to use the rolling walker. If a customer requires a support person, fees will not be charged for the support person for events or consultations.

Our store is pet-friendly! Service animals and furry companions are welcome on all parts of our premises that are open to the public, on a leash that is maximum 4 feet long.
