A native Georgian, Pete Pike became interested in the nursery business in the mid-1950s. He started his business with three employees and a 200 ft. by 200 ft. location on Highway 41 in Marietta, Georgia. Times were so hard in those days that he and his employees borrowed water and restroom facilities from the gas station next door. Today, Pike Nurseries is comprised of 400 employees in the peak seasons at 15 retail stores in Atlanta and Charlotte, a landscape installation/design service and a.. planting service.VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
Walking around the greenhouse at Pike Family Nurseries in the middle of summer is a hot but wonderful experience. But... once planting season is over, be prepared for lackluster (but still expensive) plants and plan on looking hard for someone to help if you have questions. The goods inside the main store are, however, wonderful and high quality. Pike sells American made, lifetime guaranteed water hoses and tools that cannot be beat.

The plants and flowers are always highest quality. I like going to a small place rather than a big orange box. The service is great they know their product and sometimes thats hard to find at the box places
