About The Gardener Nursery
Family Owned and Operated Since 1979
We are a small family owned nursery and landscaping business in the Short Pump area of Richmond, Virginia. For three generations, we have worked to grow quality plants and create timeless landscapes.
In our nursery, we grow our plants root first. While this method is a little slower, it allows each plant to strengthen so we can give you the best plant available. This also ensures your plant will thrive in our region if planted and maintained properly.
While we specialize in boxwood and azalea, we also grow many other shrubs, trees and perennials used in the Central Virginia landscape. We boast plants growing in unusual forms. Our "crazy azaleas", for instance, look more like small trees than shrubs. And, our Bonsai starter plants are a must see!
When it comes to landscapes, we believe they should last for decades and add value as they age. A good landscape design that is well implemented should provide both gratification and a positive return on investment. At The Gardener Nursery, those are the principals we use to shape our landscape designs for each client.
Our beginnings are in boxwood and azalea, but we now grow so much more. From evergreen to deciduous, from perinnial to woody, we grow many of this area's proven hardy landscape plants. We grow in containers as well as in the field, and we have traditional and unique forms in a wide variety of plant material.
