Visit The Green People in Kingsport, TN

Evergreen of Colonial Heights is the oldest garden center in East Tennessee founded in 1966 by Auke and Sarah Valk, Dutch immigrants. Their 4 sons continued the family business upon Auke & Sarah's retirement and now Evergreen of Colonial Heights is a 3rd generation family business. Evergreen of Colonial Heights is currently owned and operated by Auke & Sarah's youngest son, Michael Valk. His two daughters, Jessica & Sarah, and his wife Laura work alongside him. The Green People have served gardeners in East Tennessee and Southwest Virginia since 1966 at several locations. We have consolidated into one centrally-located garden center in Colonial Heights and focus on expanding our storefront to provide you with a wide array of your gardening needs.

Our Tree & Shrub Guarantee
Untitled design

Every tree & shrub comes with an one year guarantee but that guarantee can be extended to two years when you purchase the correct amount of Fertilome Root Stimulator and Evergreen Planting Mix to install your plants. This will ensure that your plants will get plenty of B1 vitamins to get those NEW roots started quickly and great soil for the roots to grow. The health of your soil is SO important to your plants well being.

After all, our success depends on your success! When you’re successful in your landscape with trees and shrubs purchased at Evergreen, you’ll come back to shop with us… and we hope you’ll tell your friends about us, too!

If you experience a failure with an Evergreen tree or shrub, just bring it back to us so we can help you find the cause of the problem (this also helps us to prevent it from occurring in the future). We’ll gladly credit you with whatever price you paid for your tree or shrub, and we’ll send you on your way with best wishes and tips for greater success! You can read more on our warranty here.
