Getting Ready For Fall At The Garden Center

Create an Autumn Palette with our Fall Garden Selections!

“In the garden, Autumn is, indeed the crowning glory of the year, bringing us the fruition of months of thought and care and toil.  And at no season, safe perhaps in Daffodil time, do we get such superb  colour effects as from August to November.”

Autumn arrives the 23rd of September, a little over two weeks away, and with it the fall season brings a number of opportunities to decorate your home, lawns, garden beds and your porch and patios with spectacular color. An autumn garden palette contains warm greens, golden yellows, orangey reds and lots of golden browns. The colors are dense, rich, warm and inviting. Autumn is a season of muted colors. At Goffle Brook Farms, we can help you spruce up your garden beds and planters in the classic colors of Fall. We carry a number of fall plants, including mums in an array of beautiful hues that are sure to brighten up your home, ornamental peppers with vibrant reds and oranges, celosia “intenz”, and seasonal décor.

Chrysanthemums come in rainbow of color choices. From russet reds to golds and yellows, lavender and purple, peach and pink, green, white and more! Mums make the biggest statement when either planted in masses, giving their tight, mounded habit and stunning bloom cover a chance to make your beds the envy of the neighborhood. Choose colors that coordinate with your existing garden. Yellows, reds and oranges will enhance your fall decor of pumpkins and gourds, while lavenders, pinks and bold reds will stand out nicely against a background of evergreens.

Chrysanthemums also excel in decorative containers. Whether as a single planting or mixed with other fall plants like grasses, flowering cabbage or pansies, mums can add the perfect pop of color to your container garden. Whether you’re looking for a quick splash of color or a fixture for your border, choose mums for a fabulous fall display.

When summer winds down, few things make us more ready for fall than spiced lattes, cardigans, and chrysanthemums—more commonly known as mums. Mums are the perfect fall flower because they’re hardy and easy to grow, plant, and pot. They also come in a wide array of colors, making them a favorite for autumn porch decor.

Our selection is not limited to fall flowers. Our garden center carries a diverse selection of garden decor for the Autumn season.

  • Pumpkins, squash, and gourds
  • Hardy mums in all sizes and colors, and other fall plants
  • Hanging baskets
  • Decorative corn stalks
  • Indian corn and many more fall decorative accessories
  • Halloween and Thanksgiving accessories

The flowers last for weeks and will attract bees, butterflies and the occasional hummingbird. Intenz Lipstick celosia makes a nice addition to container gardens, where it will act as the filler. In the garden, it displays best when planted in groups of five or more plants.

Plant this annual to spice up your garden or containers with long-lasting color. From little black pearls to larger cone-shaped fruits that resemble Christmas lights, the showy little fruits of ornamental peppers make stunning garden displays and are available in a rainbow of colors.

Lawn Care

Jonathan Green Lawn Care at Goffle Brook Farms

Introducing  Jonathan Green’s The New American Lawn Plan for all homeowners with lawns.  The New American Lawn is a cutting-edge lawn care program that not only feeds the lawn, like every program on the market today, but, unlike all others, FEEDS THE SOIL!  That’s right, the soil.

Healthy soil is the foundation for all great lawns.  Your soil must be free of compaction, possess healthy microbial populations, and have the correct pH or your “great lawn” journey will not happen.  Think about it.  Would you plant your annuals and perennials in a poor quality potting soil?  Of course not. So why not ensure that your grass is growing in quality soil, too? The New American Lawn Primer Video makes this happen!



There are many benefits to your child or your children when you take them to a petting zoo for the first time. One of the first benefits is that your child or children can get to see the different kinds of animals first hand. Many children like the ones who live in the cities do not get to see the kinds of animals that live in petting zoos.

A zoo of this kind can have a variety of different animals that are usually hand raised and very gentle. In a petting zoo, you may find baby animals like goats, chickens, burros, lambs, and often-small baby calves as well. Touching an animal is new and exciting to a child and you can watch as your child finds his or her favorite animal.

Our Petting Zoo is designed for small children and pre-teens to have a wonderful experience especially if your child lives in a city situation. The petting zoos give the parents the opportunity to expose their children to the animals and let the children have fun. The children can pet all the animals and feed the animals by hand as well. To a small child who has never seen these creatures before this is fun, new and exciting all at the same time.

Perennial Hydrangea at Goffle Brook Farms in RIdgewood NJ


“Where flowers bloom, so does hope.”

Perennials are plants that live longer than two years. Perennials may go to seed every year and may even die back to the ground at times, but their root systems are alive and they will grow again when conditions are right.

What Our Customers Say!

Been coming here for the past few years to get all of my plant and flower needs. It is not a large place but they have all of the basics and everything you would need with a good variety. They even have a nice petting zoo for kids


Great local nursery with friendly, knowledgeable staff. I always leave happy and satisfied with my purchase.

Brian Collier

Really cute garden center. My boyfriend and I stopped by to get some pumpkins. They had a great variety of both small and large pumpkins. They also have a small petting zoo with goats, sheep, and a pig. They have a variety of produce for purchase inside. We wound up sampling cider they were selling and bought that as well as it was delicious. We may go back to get more. Employees were very helpful and friendly. Highly recommend this garden center.

Jessica M

Looks like a small place, but we were surprised to find a large selection of plants and flowers at reasonable prices. Friendly staff added to a very pleasant experience. We will definitely return for any future gardening needs.

William Woodward

Love them. Donna, the owner, helped our son, Dillon with his Eagle Scout project to renovate the courtyard at Travell Elementary. They were the only area business to donate FREE plants and trees: 3 Little Pim lilacs, some grasses and other items. Donna was so thrilled to help an Eagle Scout achieve his dream. Interestingly in 2001, when they heard Dillon’s pumpkin that he’d been growing in our front garden patch was stolen (right before 9/11), they dropped off a pumpkin and a painting kit at our front door. We’ve been going there ever since for our Fall mums & corn stalks. These spring photos look so wonderful, think I’ll get pansies here too as this year I didn’t have time to do them from seed. Thanks Donna and all the great staff at GBF&GC

Hands down one of the best garden centers in the area. With a fantastic selection, this small family-owned business cares for you like family. The manager, M, knows everything and is helpful with all requests. The petting zoo for families is nice as well if you have younger kids around. I won’t spend money at a box store or any other garden center anymore. It is worth going out of my way to visit these folks!

Norm Rasmussen

One of my favorite places in Ridgewood. You can always tell what season it is at Goffle Brook Farms. The Jersey corn and tomatoes are the summer’s best!

Anthony Damiano

Stopped by today on a very HOT day to get the “to die for” sweet summer corn and was pleasantly surprised by all the gorgeous Fall decorations. A very knowledgeable staff member was so helpful and even brought my heavy Fall bushel plant to my car and into my trunk. She also told me that there would be a petting zoo in about 2 weeks and I will definitely bring my toddler grandkids! Great customer service!

Catherine Lotwis-Clinton

LOVE! The employees are great with kids. This place is great for a low-commotion but super fun fall festivity day! Cute animals you can feed, a wide variety of pumpkins, fresh produce, a mini haunted little house, and a bunch more. Definitely will return!

Elana Grace

This is such a great place. Goffle Brook Farm & Garden Center has friendly and helpful staff that seem to really appreciate your business. They have a great selection of plants, flowers, gardening supplies, great FRESH local produce and I am sure tons of stuff I have yet to discover. The staff is very knowledgeable and always takes the time to walk me through any garden problem or question I have. I’ve been going to Goffle Brook Farm & Garden Center regularly for the past year since my family moved to the area and every time I go I leave happy. What more can you ask for? They will have my loyal business. I think they deserve your business too.
