New garden center opens in Coshocton

| April 10, 2018

COSHOCTON – A new garden center officially opened for business on a snowy April afternoon in Coshocton. Sprout Garden Center, 601 W. Chestnut St., is owned and operated by Penny Rouse, originally from Uhrichsville.

“We are super excited to be part of Coshocton,” said Rouse. “I couldn’t have asked for a better location. I hope everyone will come, talk with us, and meet with us and hopefully support us and help us move forward.”

Rouse and co-owner Brandon Warfield took over the building in mid-February. From that time, they began renovating the old building to make it their own.

Rouse was formerly a manger at a garden center in New Philadelphia for 15 years.

“My son and I were in preliminary stages of talking about going into business for ourselves,” said Rouse. “This was my experience and what I knew best. We heard this place was for sale, and it just worked out.”

The business offers seeds, fertilizers, sprays, hanging baskets, shrubs, and a gift shop with handcrafted items. Their inventory will change with the seasons. Rouse said they are looking for suggestions from the community on what they would like to see in stock.

Sprout Garden Center is open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. They will have extended hours throughout the year.

“We are super excited to have you in Coshocton,” said Amy Stockdale, executive director of the Coshocton Chamber of Commerce. “We’re glad you chose Coshocton to move your new business to.”
