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 »

Lifetime warranty on them....whatda?!...you bet. jeremiah was my guy who arranged it. they answered all questions, came promptly. No complaints. next time I need bushes/trees I'll call these guys first.

I was always a fan of Pike's since moving to ATL 15 years ago. Last year (?) Pike filed for bankruptcy due to the drought and challenging economic times. Since that filing - customer service and the ability for floor people to make customer-facing decisions has gone to zero. So, for that matter, has the senior discount - moving from an any day discount to Wednesdays only. My Mother arrived on a Thursday after filling her cart with over $300 worth of plants was told that she could come back next week and get the discount. Pike just lost her and our business over $30. Shameful!
