Colonial Gardens

745 Schuylkill Road
Phoenixville, PA 19460


Colonial Gardens was established in 1964 by Carl Korbel and Elizabeth Klaus. It was orginally known as Colonial Garden Center. During the 3 years it was owned by Mr. Korbel, the store consisted of a small section that is now our cash register room. In 1967 it was purchased by Stan Schmidt and Phil Spinelli. It was operated as a partnership until 1969 when Mr. Schmidt became the sole owner. A year later, the business was incorporated as Colonial Garden Center, Inc. Early products included houseplants, terrariums, produce, annuals, perrenials, shrubs, bagged soils, and mulch.
