Mt. Fuji Garden Center in Upland, San Bernardino County is a garden center specializing in the finest quality plant material and garden ornaments.

Mt. Fuji Garden Center is for serious gardeners. They have great selection of plants that cannot be found in big box home centers like Home Depot or Lowes. They have plants that cannot be found at these big box stores.

They have great selection for fruit trees, California native plants, bonsai, heritage vegetables (heirloom tomatoes) and other specialty plants.

The prices are a little higher than big box stores but you can get solid advice and tips from the staff. It is hard to get this service from the big box stores.




















The place looks run down but serious gardeners are not for the store looks. They patronize this kind of nurseries because of the plant selections and service they offer. They carry hard to find plant species.

For my visit, I bought a peony. Other than ordering on-line or thru a catalog, where in Southern California can you buy a peony? I hope it will bloom in the Southern California weather.




















If you are a serious gardener and love gardening, this place is for you.

Address: 1555 W. Foothill, Upland, CA 91786.

Two months after planting, the peony I bought is in full bloom. Most peony does not bloom on the first year of planting. Mt. Fuji really sells healthy and quality plants. I will be a regular customer from now on.
