Fort Collins Nursery can trace its roots back to the early 1930s, originally named Kinghorn Nursery, and a fair sight smaller than it is today. Through the decades, the business has morphed and grown, passing hands from one owner to the next, moving from west Fort Collins to its current location on East Mulberry Street, dividing into two thriving businesses (Fort Collins Nursery and Fort Collins Wholesale Nursery), and even acting as a springboard for countless landscape companies, arborists, growers, and other green industry professionals. Today, Fort Collins Nursery stands as a premier garden center and nursery, and we’re not done growing yet!
Over the winter, we undertook a major expansion of our retail greenhouse and garden center. We added nearly 7,000 square feet of covered retail space and specialized propagation space, rearranged significant portions of our shrub area, and dedicated an entire building to showcasing pottery and planters – The Clay House.
These changes are the end result of a long process of looking for ways to grow to continue to meet the needs of the northern Colorado gardening community, and we are pleased as punch to have such amazing support from each and every one of you! We absolutely love what we do, and we love seeing all of you and learning about your landscape projects, your houseplant collections, your vegetable gardens, and all the other wonderful things you do to make our world a little bit more lush, a little bit more colorful, and, if I can invent a word here, a little plantier.
We will be hosting our Grand Opening for the newly remodeled building at our Spring Open House on April 27th, 2019, but if you want a sneak peak, the space is open and we’d love to see you! Thank you for your support for the last 87 years, we can’t wait to see what the next 87 holds in store!
