Charlie Thigpen's Garden Gallery

More than a garden shop, we are a destination for inspiration!  We've created a sanctuary of soothing sights and sounds in our courtyard garden and adjacent shop.  Both are filled with beautiful plants, water features, home decor, local art and gifts for all occasions.

We are happy to offer expert advice on plants and gardening and every staff member goes the extra mile in customer service.

We create unique plant arrangements using live orchids, ferns, pothos and other seasonal blooming plants, and we deliver throughout the Birmingham area.  We also offer beautaiful floral arrangements, working with local floral artist and event specialist Suzanne Martenson.  Let us help with your next special occasion!

Charlie Thigpen specializes in landscape design services and on-site consulting work.  A true gardener, he orchestrated the naturalistic plantings that distinguised the campus of Southern Progress Corporation where Southern Living magazine is published.  There he honed his skills, elevating the landscape to a garden, and taking the craft of gardening to the level of art.  He saw how plants and design impact the lives of spectators and participants alike, and he developed a personal style that looks good while being manageable.  As Associate Garden Editor for Southern Living magazine, he helped readers see possibilities and understand the way to achieve them.  Known for projects rooted in experience, Charlie can paint a pretty picture with plants.  Just as he offered his creative ideas to millions of readers today he enjoys bringing them to life at his Garden Gallery and at the homes of their customers.

Come be inspired!
