Our Story

Read More

Like any fledgling business, James River Nurseries started small. We fondly remember those days and that’s why we’ve never forgotten our roots.

Through the years, we have been honored to be chosen as the landscape providers for major projects, such as the Virginia Governor’s Mansion, Richmond International Airport, Wyndham, Innsbrook Office Park, The University of Richmond, St. Francis Medical Center, West Broad Village and Bass Pro Shops.

But during that time we have continued to provide the same quality materials and services to the individual homeowner.

Simply put, we are committed to providing each client - from the largest developer to the new homeowner - with unmatched value.

James River Nurseries’ success is based on two things; our people and our products.

Many on our staff have been with us for more that 20 years. Our “collective” horticultural experience surpasses 200 years.

Our plant materials come from the best growers in the Southeast and beyond.

The experienced buying team travels from the Southeast to the Pacific Northwest to personally select materials that meet our stringent standards.

 The long-standing business relationships we have established with our growers, allow us to provide the best available pricing on the highest quality plant material. These plants are consistently bigger and healthier than those of many competitors, but cost no more.

In addition to the added value, our plants have a higher survival rate and their robust stature results in a fuller, more attractive landscape, from the moment they are planted.

Perhaps the greatest compliment that our clients pay to James River Nurseries is their desire to invite us back to work on projects with them - time and again.
