Rose fell in love with Asheville and bought the house at 211 Charlotte Street in September 2012 with the idea of opening a garden shop. After a lengthy renovation of the 1917 house in the historic neighborhood of Albemarle Park, the shop opened in November,2013.

Julie Van Buren’s background in customer relations and her beaming smile will let you know she is ready to guide you to a great choice. She has been an avid gardener for years and combines this with a passion for the outdoors and compassion for others.

At Rose’s Garden Shop, we are dedicated to providing unusual plants for the house, porch and garden. Our staff is always eager to provide guidance in your selection of plants appropriate for the conditions and care you are able to provide.

Our unusual plants are accompanied by a selection of eclectic antiques and vintage accessories offered at affordable prices. Rose frequents auctions, estate sales and other unusual suppliers throughout the region to find unique items that are related to nature, can be used (or re-used) as plant containers, or are just fun and whimsical. Her goal is to find good values that she can pass on to the customer. She loves to see her customers smile!
