Family Tree Nursery Growing Facility

Family Tree Nursery of Kansas City came from its passion for plants; a passion that began over 55 years ago when a young dental student followed his passion and transferred to the horticulture program at Kansas State University. Ron Nelson opened the doors of the first store at 85th Street and Farley as a wholesale growing facility providing other outlets with high-quality gift plants, like Poinsettias and Mums in 1964.

This love for plants has since evolved into three retail locations; with the acquisition of the Shawnee store in 1981 and Liberty location in 1988 joining the Overland Park location. They are also proud to say in 1986 they added their growing facility, with over 6 acres of covered greenhouses to grow their award-winning mums, poinsettias, perennials, bedding plants, and hanging baskets and deliver them daily to their stores.

With over 100 full and part-time employees, under the helm of Ron’s son, Eric, Family Tree Nursery in Kansas City, Kansas, continues to provide superior products with the knowledge, service, and experience to back it up.

Their bedding plants look better because they’re grown better – they grow almost every bedding plant they sell at their own greenhouses. They travel nationwide scouting trial gardens and test sites to uncover the best varieties for their tough growing conditions and continually push to grow them bigger and better. The Family Tree invites you to walk through the doors of any of their unique locations and experience the magic that has made Family Tree Nursery a premier garden center destination.

Family Tree Nursery is a team of passionate horticulturists providing a variety of gardening products that ensure a unique shopping experience. A well-informed, courteous staff, backed by years of experience, knowledge, and integrity, guarantees the success of their customers.
