Excellent service and knowledgeable staff willing to help those of us with a not-so-green thumb.

Went there in search of a dwarf lemon tree, kale and other potted plants. Everyone there seems to care about gardening. a lot of homeowners were there chatting up in the nursery area about slugs and tips for getting rid of them. Felt very neighborly.

The person who helped me with my Dwarf Meyer Lemon needs (Sue? Susan?) was happy to help and provided some guidance on how to care for the plants I was buying.

I bought a bird feeder from Sloat Garden Center this weekend. My garden is looking a little spare in this weather. Well ok, let's face it, I haven't touched it since summertime!

Neverthesless, I was able to find what I needed from this store. A little on the expensive side though, considering their selection and location.

Super lousy customer service. There was a line of people waiting at the counter this weekend. The person working was the slowest cashier I've ever seen in my entire life. Their selection was really lousy, and the plants I bought are fighting for its life. Thanks a lot!!!

We go there because it is close to our house and we can get some decent plants. Overall the plants look like they have been through the ringer. The big problem I had is when I put something on special order. I had paid to have one of their designers design a plan for us then I couldn't get half the plants on the design. I wouldn't get a call that something came in and I would go down there to find it was put outside to be bought by anyone. When I asked the person in charge of ordering, she offered no apoligizes only that she claimed messages were left, which they were not. It happened every time. Then there we items that they could never get. If they couldn't get it from a larger grower, they weren't willing to help. I ended up going to East Bay Nursery in Berkeley where the staff there were so much more helpful AND knowledgeable. Also, if they didn't have it, they sent me to a small grower who would. I drove to Santa Rosa to get a plant that was on special order with Sloat for almost a year. There was only one person, Dustin, at the main Sloat store that was really helpful and he unfortunately was tranfered to the Marin store. I guess that is where they send all the good people.

I like going here and looking around. They have such a variety of plants. The people who work here are very nice. They can help you to pick what you are looking for.

This is a great place to go for your garden needs even if you don't know what to plant or where to plant it. The staff will help you out with your every question and need. It's a small place, but full of beauty.

I love smaller garden centers. They give you much better one on one attention for people like me who is not garden savy. SLoat Garden has been in business a very long time and has been in this location over 30 years.

The best thing about Sloat Garden Center is the knowledge and helpfulness of the staff. Other than that, it is a pretty small place. You will find some seasonal items, water fountains, etc.

For the 15 years I've lived in San Francisco and lots of shopping around, no one has beat Sloat on pricing, selection and help for my gardening needs in BOTH locations. Nearly all plants are presented with staff-written information about care and maintenance. And nearly all outdoor plants for sale are selected for their ability to do well locally, with remarks for those that may need more care than others.

The staff there has always been helpful in my experience. While they don't rush about trying to sell to or pamper customers, it's never a problem or a task asking someone for help with questions and many of the shoppers there seem more than happy to add their gardening experience to help you if they overhear you.

The grounds are well kept and organized... shade/part-shade/part-sun/full-sun as well as a huge selection of gorgeous indoor plants, supplies, pots, beneficial garden insects, environmentally sound pest-control, and even fun gardening kits aimed at child education

Aside from supplies... they even offer classes and lectures on many gardening, plant care, soil, and animal/insect help/problem topics and have rotating deals year-round.

Pros: ample parking, selection, pricing

Cons: distance from city center

I would never shop here again. The staff have such a superior attitude and NO customer service ability. They may have good quality plants but the staff are mean and I'd much rather spend my money elsewhere. They promised me one thing on the phone and when I got there they went back on their word and never even apologized. The entire store is set up to suit the staff and not the customers. Don't even bother shopping here as they won't back up their products.

I really like to buy my plants here (sloat garden center located near the beach). They have all kinds of differnt plants and gardening supplies. The service is pretty good. Many of the employees seem to be knowledgable about the plants. The prices aren't bad either. Overall i would give this place 4 stars.

I like this place a lot because it has everything I need for my backyard garden. They have reasonable pricing and always have the pretties flowers and plants. They truly have the nicest workers and they love to help out anyone who have questions. I recommend one go to this store before other ones.

Located a few blocks from the Pacific Ocean, the shop's outdoor nursery yard is filled with a great selection of sun and shade plants, as well as large and small planters. Adjacent is a spacious barnlike building housing…
