Our New Online Store!

Posted by Liz Duthie on

 What's New? 

  • For you, the customer, the navigation should be easier and more reliable
  • You can choose to create an account - this will store your name, address & phone number to save some typing when you check out next. It will NOT store your payment info such as your credit card information.
  • More information about groups of plants on offer - on the collections pages and in the blog
  • A better Check Out system - you can still choose to pay using your Paypal account, but there is a direct link to credit/debit card payments if you prefer
  • For MBG there is a lot more 'behind-the-scenes' collating of order information, so we can keep a better handle on orders, stock, payments, and notifications

What's the Same? 

  • Tried and true plants that do well in the Mobile Area - and locally grown! 
  • Seasonal offerings at the right time to plant or display - yes, Tomatopalooza, Poinsettias, Gingers, and all the favorites will be listed! 
  • Pick up ONLY  - look at the MAIN PAGE for the pick up date (this will vary for each plant collection - in most cases we will NOT have the plants on site until just before the pick up date) 
  • 10% Discount on plants (only plants and ONLY online) for Members with the shopping code - enter at checkout 


Sometimes it's tough to get all our ducks in a row as a mainly volunteer organization with a small paid staff.  After some catastrophic online failures, we implemented an 'emergency' online store, and it has worked well  - BUT our sights were always on a more integrated system, and this new store is part of the plan. 

Although we have tested it before launch, there are bound to be some glitches!  Please bear with us for a while - and please let us know of any problems. Email Liz at to let her know!

  • I have replied to Mary separately. But for anyone else with the same question. Member shopping discount codes will be sent with your membership details. If you can’t find it, then please email the office at or Liz at mbgardens@ and we will send it to you. Thank you for the question, Mary and I’m glad you enjoyed the WinterGarden! The camellias are beautiful and plentiful this year! Liz Duthie – online shop admin.
