Situated just North of Kootenai Cutoff Road on Highway 95, Ponderay Garden Center, North Idaho’s award winning nursery, is emerging as an example of what can happen when agricultural space meets city expansion and when vision is combined with a sense of community. Rather than plowing the beautiful family farm under to make way for a strip mall, Ponderay Garden Center has taken all the existing buildings of the 9 acre property and converted them into 6 different retail buildings. Ranging in size from 100 sq. ft. to 1,000 sq. ft. each has its own theme and décor.
