On June 24, Garden World Inc. broke ground on their facility and will soon call Cottage Grove home. The 9-acre site will be transformed into a warehouse and office building with a large greenhouse and outdoor plant garden plots. Plants will be grown on-site in the greenhouse or garden plots and then shipped to various retail locations.

The new facility will be located within the Cottage Grove Business Park at 97th Street and Hemingway Avenue with plans to be completed by spring 2017. Garden World is relocating to Cottage Grove from St. Paul bringing with it 14 jobs to the community. They are a well-established, industry leading distributor and wholesaler of perennials and other plant materials. Garden World does not sell flowers and plants on-site.
