Not the most creative mind...

I'm having a hard time coming up with a name for my garden center. Wanted something catchy but not corny and bland. I worked for a company in college whose name was Blooming Colors. Bright colored t-shirts and adds, it was great. I'm in the south if that helps. Any creative minds out there?

What image are you trying to project? \

Answer the who, what where, when and how questions first.

IBM, AT&T and Microsoft your not. Just a guess. But think about where your are and some local names for your area.

My neighbor has a produce stand and garden. He calls it "Willow Springs Gardens" because its on Willow Springs road.

You could try googling different names from around the world and get some ideas that way.

Just some thoughts. Good luck.

Thanks for the reply Arkansas. Local names for my area really stink. The center will be on Montgomery street so there's nothing flashy there. I was looking at trying to incorporate the sun somehow but have yet to come up with anything good. I just want to get it right this time because I named my design company in a hurry, didn't really like it and now am stuck with it.

How about:

Southern Sun Gardens, Sunshine Gardens, Gardens in the Sun, Sunside Gardens, Comfort Sun Garden Center, Seaside Sun Gardens,

Sun Brothers Nursery

Sunspot plant and garden



Just start writing down names.

When you get 5 that you like put them on here and see what others think.

Not bad, still working on some names. In the process of putting the fence up so I've been kind of busy. You don't know how out of shape you are until you run a 2-man auger all day. Still can't feel my upper body.
