Things That Grow is a locally owned landscaping company, garden center and tree farm located in the heart of Central Florida. We have been serving landscape contractors and homeowners for over 50 years providing high quality plants, trees and palms throughout Florida and beyond.

The Sellards family has been growing "things" for four generations, starting with Harry, sons David, Jack and John, got things "growing" in Apopka. Relocating to Clermont after the recession Dave and son Tom started over and called the new business "Things That Grow" "growing" cold hardy palms, Ligustrum, large Live and Laurel Oaks, Red Maple, River Birch and even Camellias which even now David still cultivates. Over 25 years later many hurricanes and another recession we're still "growing" with Tom, wife Michele and son Coleman. We look forward to many more years of service to the plant industry.

With our new garden center now open in Groveland just 1.5 miles south of SR 50 we have many collected specimens as well as mulch, sod by the piece or pallet, palm fertilizers, annuals, flowering trees like Crape Myrtle or Magnolia and Tababuia as well as shrubs for landscape and privacy hedges and buffers. Advice is always free, certified Arborist on staff and plant disease can be diagnosed and treated in most cases, now using Arbor jet products.

Our design and installation service is legendary and second to none in the area, our attention to detail will get your attention every time. Look around and chances are that that you have already enjoyed the shade of one of our Live Oaks or admired the multi-trunk ornamental "Turtle Back" Ligustrum in your community.

What People Are Saying

Since 2013, Things That Grow has done several landscape projects for me. Each one is amazingly beautiful. Tom Sellards is honest, pricing is fair and he stands behind his work. I will continue using them. Joyce B. Feb 17, 2016
Things That Grow has done many projects for me over the years,the latest being "Outback Oasis" in Winter Haven.Tom and his crew always exceed my expectations with their unique specimens and attention to detail. Paul S.,Winter Haven, www.outbackoasis.com May 5, 2016
Tom and his crew did a great job on an upgrade of our landscaping with 2 new trees, a demo of an overgrown hedge, transplanting numerous of our plants and adding new, a new berm, beds, etc. Fixing a clogged irrigation zone was icing on the cake. We're happy in Minneola! Terry T, Homeowner Minneola Apr 26, 2016
