About Roots

Roots, our garden and gift shop, has a lot to offer this holiday season!

Stop in for stress-free shopping for great holiday gifts. Follow the arbor-covered path to display areas showcasing plants, pots and containers, books, home and garden accessories and more.

Roots is open Monday through Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The gift shop will be closed Monday, December 22 through Sunday, January 4.


Our garden and gift shop “Roots" is unlike anything we've offered at the Gardens before. Follow the arbor-covered path to the indoor and outdoor display areas showcasing annuals, perennials, shrubs, pots and containers, books, home and garden accessories, gifts and more. Roots has partnered with area garden retailers Hanna’s Garden Shop and Myers Plants and Pottery, and Alabama Environmental Center will educate visitors on rain water recycling through the installation of a rain barrel. Roots managers have made a conscious effort to demonstrate the creative use of recyclables.
