In December 2018, Plymouth Nursery was acquired by English Gardens, the nation’s 10th largest garden center. This location is currently closed and will re-open on Friday, March 1, 2019.
This marks English Gardens sixth location in the Metro Detroit area. The family-owned company currently operates stores in Clinton Twp., Dearborn Heights, Eastpointe, Royal Oak/Troy, and West Bloomfield.
“English Gardens has been looking for a new location in this market since we lost the lease on our Ann Arbor store in January 2018,” explains Darin. “We are very pleased about this opportunity and look forward to servicing customers who frequented our previous store and meeting current Plymouth Nursery customers.
“Jeff and his team have built a beautiful operation. We plan to continue his tradition of offering high-quality products and services while expanding upon the store’s selection.”
English Gardens will continue to operate the landscaping portion of the business, as well.
“We hope that many of Plymouth Nursery’s current team members will continue on with English Gardens,” says Darin. “We’re also looking to hire additional people to work in the store and landscaping operation.
The Plymouth Nursery name dates back to 1931, Wayne and Nancy Jones purchased Plymouth Nursery in 1963 from Pete Christensen of Christensen's Plymouth Nursery. Wayne and Nancy started selling trees and shrubs and installing landscape projects for the homeowner. Wayne worked in the growing and nursery operations. Nancy worked with the customers in landscape design. The Nursery was moved to the present location in 1973.
Jeff Jones purchased the company from his parents in 1986 and added a team of managers to help grow and diversify the business.
