Offering the best selection of healthy, beautiful plants for your yard!
Hi-Way Transit Garden Center is a seasonal plant nursery and garden store. We are a family owned business, we are your neighbors. Western NY is our home and we care about the people here just like you do. We take great pride in delivering an exceptional product to you and look forward to serving your gardening needs throughout the spring, summer and fall.
All of Hi-Way Garden Center's annual and perennial bedding plants are locally grown at our own greenhouse farm in Amherst. You may be surprised to know that behind our Amherst store are 70+ greenhouses, approximately 8 acres, of growing facility. What we grow at the farm supplies both Hi-Way Garden Center and Hi-Way Transit Garden Center in Lockport.
In recent years we have moved away from the use of chemical pesticides and are almost wholly dependent on beneficial insects to combat insects that are damaging to plants.
To keep our customers and our employees safe, we will be placing hand sanitizing stations at each of our registers. We are wiping down carts with a bleach solution between each use. Masks are required. We have changed the flow of our store by making each aisle ONE WAY only. This way our customers will not be face-to-face with another customer or employee and it will promote proper social distancing. We will also be reminding people while in the checkout line to please stay six feet apart from the person in front of you. We already have signage in place. People have also asked if we will be limiting the number of customers who can enter the store. This will not be necessary for us because of our size. The inside of our store is approximately 65,000 sf. In keeping with guidelines of other large stores (5 people for every 1,000 sf) we would be able to allow 300 people in our store. We don't have enough parking spaces for that many people even if every car held 2 or 3 people. One thing that you can do as a customer, is to shop at off-peak hours. Typically Mondays and Tuesdays are slower days in the store, as well as cooler and cloudy days. Of course we are depending on you, our loyal customers, to follow these guidelines. We can get through this together.
Files coming soon.
We love our customers, so feel free to visit during normal business hours.

As spring continues and the state is reopening, we are making a few adjustments. Curbside orders postmarked after 5/27/2020 will not be filled.
While the curbside pickup service was something we were happy to do, and we enjoyed working with you on the phone to get your orders just right, we must focus those efforts on caring for our plants and preparing our retail store for the week’s ahead. Further as our inventory on certain items runs out it is difficult to communicate current inventory effectively for curbside pick-up orders.
We are open for retail every day of the week through October.
We hope to see you in the garden center soon!
