Boise may be the City of Trees, but it takes a whole lot of green thumbs to keep it that way. Some of the biggest green thumbs around can be found tending the lush foliage at Edwards Greenhouse. For the past decade, Edwards has ruled this category, but it doesn't take a botany degree to understand why it has bloomed in the hearts of Treasure Valley gardeners. From the 10 acres of nursery and greenhouses in Boise's North End, Edwards offers stunning trees and plants year round, as well as decor for inside and out. Beyond that, there's all that helpful advice Edwards employees dole out, helping Boise keep that emerald hue. Need help not killing your landscaping?
