2007 Nursery Tour... Please add your favorite listings to DG

Deep East Texas, TX(Zone 8a)

In case you hadn't found it, Dave now has added a nursery and gardens listing to DG. Let's start adding any nurseries around us on this link. That way, when you go on a nursery tour, you can map out your plant shopping trip. This will be great for scheduling vacation time also. This is the link for the above:

Edited to unlink the above (didn't work!) link and try this one....

Thank you for letting us know Podster, I didn't know about this forum and I think it is a great idea.

Murfreesboro, TN(Zone 7a)

podster, thanks for starting this thread. One of the important differences that will distinguish this feature from other general "trip advisor" or "yellow pages" sites is the input from each of us as gardeners.

Please add your feedback for the businesses you've patronized and the public gardens and parks you have visited. It helps other gardeners and the business or organization.

For smaller businesses and organizations, this type of "word of mouth" is their only form of advertising. And for businesses of any size, unsolicited testimonials are priceless - they can't buy that type of good will.

Here are the Texas listings so far: http://davesgarden.com/go/advanced.php?state=tx

You can narrow this down to a particular category (garden center/nursery, or public gardens, etc.) You can also plug in your ZIP and specify a radius (especially helpful if you live near the state line and want to see everything in your immediate area.)

If your favorite nursery or park/garden isn't listed yet, let us know and we'll add it, or start the entry and add what you know (we'll fill in the blanks.)

Josephine, I added all but the 2 wholesale nurseries and the landscape company - at this point, we're steering this feature towards businesses and organizations (public gardens, etc.) that can be accessed by the general public. Since you provided this list, I'm hoping you've done business with each of these retail sources, and can give feedback for the benefit of fellow gardeners ;o)

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

I have only done business with Redentas Garden, Weston Gardens, and Green Mama, the list was recomended by the Native Plant Society of North Central Texas.
I didn't know that you wanted only nurseries that we have had personal experience with.
If that is not o.k. you can remove the others, no problem.

Murfreesboro, TN(Zone 7a)

No, it's fine - as long as they sell retail, they can stay. But if you have others that you know of, but haven't done business with, I'll probably beg off and let you add them instead of me ;o)

Josephine, Arlington, TX(Zone 8a)

Thank you Terry, I appreciate it.

Denton, TX(Zone 7b)

Lovelace Nursery Landscape
P.O. Box 39

Austin, TX(Zone 8b)

Hey Terry,

Floribunda Nursery has closed, I am not sure if their other services on their website are available.

Howard Nursery has closed.

Both in Austin, TX


McKinney, TX(Zone 8a)

Terry, Pecan creek in Coppell closed also. I made note of it on their review, but you might want to remove it.

Murfreesboro, TN(Zone 7a)

Thanks! Dave is working on giving me the ability to add a "closed" note to nurseries that are gone-but-not-forgotten ;o) Once that's in place, I'll go through and mark all those that have been mentioned.

New Caney, TX(Zone 8b)

Joshua's Native Plants

Murfreesboro, TN(Zone 7a)

bananna18, I think this is the place you're talking about: http://gardens.com/go/view/969/ Wanna leave 'em a review? I'm sure they (and other gardeners in your area) would appreciate a plug!

Gilmer, TX

Smotherman's Nursery and Landscaping
1122 West Marshall (Hwy 80)
Longview, TX 75606
A little pricey but they have things you can't find anywhere around here except Blue Moon. They have a big sale sale on Labor Day week-end and all plants, trees, shrubs are half price.

301 W. Methvin
Longview, TX 75601
They are heavy into vegetable plants and seeds. They have a vast array of gardening supplies. This is a family owned business and they are very knowledgeable and extremely helpful.

Houston, TX(Zone 10a)

All in One Nursery
Houston Texas
Northfield ... off 43rd between 290 and hempstead

Waxahachie, TX(Zone 8a)

On Hwy 77 between Hwy 342 and Sterret Rd

I've never been unable to find what I was looking for there. They specialize in landscaping, pottery and stone.

Roland's Nursery & Landscape

I bought there 1 time, not a good experience! I've heard others say good things about them, but I like The Greenery better.

Murfreesboro, TN(Zone 7a)

The Greenery: http://gardens.com/go/view/4249/

Hope you'll add your $0.02 worth for each - what you know will help others!

Murfreesboro, TN(Zone 7a)

earthtiller, here's their listing: http://gardens.com/go/view/1027/

If you would leave them a review, I'm sure they would appreciate it (and so would other gardeners looking for good places to buy!)

Southlake, TX(Zone 8a)

I am surprised no one has added North Haven Nursuries in North Dallas

Garland, TX(Zone 8a)

Here is North Haven's listing: http://gardens.com/go/view/7/

Gainesville, TX

Ok, heres the best kept secret in Gainesville.

Kadens Florist (its also a nursery)
1938 Rice AVe
Gainesville, Tx 76240


Sorry...no website. This is the oldest single family owned nursery in Texas, 122 years. Mr. Kaden does all his own veggie starts and only sells what grows well in our area. If he doesn't have it it may not grow well here.

He is an Aggie grad and about one of the nicest people you would ever meet. I went in and one question turned into about an hour and a half conversation. He never seems rushed and will answer any and all questions. He also makes his own potting soil from his own organic compost that is out of this world...ask Melvatoo I gave her some.


McKinney, TX(Zone 8a)

Cool. Thanks for the tip Debbie. My stepkids live up in Gainesville, so I will have check it out. :)

Murfreesboro, TN(Zone 7a)

BTW, I tweaked the entry a bit: http://davesgarden.com/products/go/view/18100/

It looks like their name is technically "Kaden the Florist & Greenhouses), and I added the coordinates so the map shows up now ;o)

I hope you'll add photos and reviews - if it needs any further tweaking or correcting, let us know!

Houston, TX(Zone 9a)

I see everything on my list is there except Wabash Antiques.

Bloomers in Elgin, TX

Houston Plants and Garden World in Houston, TX -- multiple locations
Wabash Antiques in Houston, TX
Another Place in Time in Houston, TX
Buchanan's Nursery in Houston, TX
Cornelius Nurseries (owned by Calloways) in Houston, TX -- multiple locations

You can add any garden center, farmers market, etc. that isn't already in there - let us know if you need any help!

And...just in case y'all a need a reason to add pictures, reviews and new listings, you *do* know there's a fun contest underway right now, right? http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/822644/

Gainesville, TX

Will do the review and try to do the photos.

Sugar Land, TX

Enchanted Forrest and Enchanted Gardens

Caldwell's Nursery

All three are family-owned businesses in the Richmond/Rosenburg area in Ft. Bend county. Absolutely LUV these two nurseries.

Murfreesboro, TN(Zone 7a)

If you care to add reviews and/or photos, here are links to all three:

Enchanted Forest: http://davesgarden.com/products/go/view/2600/
Enchanted Gardens: http://davesgarden.com/products/go/view/2666/
Caldwell Nursery: http://davesgarden.com/products/go/view/2665/

Conroe, TX(Zone 9a)

Has anyone in my area been to Hope Farms open yard sale that is put on every spring and fall? They have great unique plants, perennials, herbs, roses, gingers, and daylilies plus much more. Plants are sold mostly in 1 gal containers and the plants can be seen growning in the landscape.
Every weekend starting April 27 to May 25. 9 to 4. Groups on weekdays by appointment only.
If anyone wants anymore information let me know.

Mico, TX

I went to Caldwells Nursery in Rosenberg yesterday and bought a chlorphytum I had been looking for. Very informal place with a huge collection of bamboo. Has anyone tried to grow bamboo in the Hill Country?

San Antonio, TX(Zone 8b)

Regarding bamboo, I'm not sure quite where the boundaries of the hill country are. My dad grew it for many years in Waco. Actually it's still growing. He started it with a piece he got while driving in the city's Cameron Park area maybe 30 years ago. Over the years it has become a good-sized stand in the corner of his yard. LiseP
