Our Roots

Since 1998

We grow and sell annuals, perennials, shrubs & trees plus all the necessary hard goods such as chemicals and mulches.  Swan River Gardens is the Flathead Valley’s premiere source for native plant material with many kinds and sizes available throughout
the season.   We also grow thousands of hardy perennials that are customer favorites. We are a full service landscape center that offers Landscape Design and installation.

The Swan River Gardens Gift Shop offers pottery and other gift items for gardens and gardeners. We attend the premier gift shows in the nation each year to bring in the newest and most exciting products for our customers

Our official opening date is March 15th each year but you can find us working on planting as early as February 15th and we are always happy to help you. You will find our hours on our Home Page as they change throughout the season.  We are typically open through the end of October each year. 


August 1998 we arrive and adopt a diamond in the rough, 'The Greenhouse' or most people remember it as 'Mo's Greenhouse'.


Greenhouse debris left behind from record snow 1996. Greenhouses were collapsed under the weight.


Our first winter in Montana we spent cleaning up the property and rebuilding greenhouses


Spring 1999, our first of many snowy 'Mothers Day's'
