Tennessee Wholesale Nursery is a retail and wholesale state-certified nursery grower of quality trees, shrubs, perennials, wetland, and native plants and trees. Our availability exceeds most growers in the industry, with over 3200 acres of availability to choose from.
We are located in the heart of the nursery capitol near Mcminnville, Tennessee. Tennessee Wholesale Nursery is a family-owned and operated Plant Nursery and offers you quality trees, shrubs, perennials, vines, wildflowers, ferns, live stakes, and B&B trees at affordable wholesale grower prices.
Our company started in 1938 as a family-owned and operated business. Since we’ve grown to have an inventory of over 3200 acres and after 56 years and three generations of nursery workers, we are still going strong.
Opening in the late 1930s was an exciting and humbling beginning. We started with only a couple of acres and hand plows with mules. Now we have state-of-the-art transplanters and tree digging spades to do most of the work for us. The grower part of nursery life is a hands-on event. Knowing what the industry expects at quality and price makes us leaders with the knowledge, unlike plant brokers or resellers. We plant enough stock to provide for large mail-order nurseries, significant retailers as well as landscapers, and other nurseries looking for deeply discounted prices on quality Grade A plants and trees.
2010 Changed The Way We Sold Plants
In 2010 due to a phenomenal amount of individuals and homeowner’s calling asking if they could buy just “1 or 2 plants,”. We decided after much deliberation to offer smaller quantities at sub-retail prices, still 50% less than most online nurseries or garden centers for those who only want 1 or 2 plants to grow in their yard or flower gardens. That has turned our strictly wholesale nursery business into one that was instantly an overnight success with homeowners and wholesalers alike. With our super low wholesale prices on large quantities, we are still offering the lowest prices online or off on nursery plants and trees.
We ship large volume bare root orders common carrier on a semi. Smaller homeowner orders ship USPS and deliver within 3-5 days. All you need to do is choose your selection and order online and allow us to do the rest for you. Our website has the highest encryption of security that You can purchase, and we have had a 0% fraud rate since we began accepting credit cards online over 38 years ago.
Shipping rates are affordable, and we guarantee you an excellent experience every time you choose to order from Tennessee Wholesale Nursery. Regardless of a small $20 order or a large wholesale $15,000 order, we treat each customer the same and offer them superior plants, packaged to be fresh on arrival and in excellent condition.
We not only get to meet nursery architects and business developers at trade shows across the country. Now, since going online, we get to meet a broader spectrum of people, including homeowners, master gardeners, pathologists, horticulturists, agriculturists, business associates, company owners, and some c.e.o and presidents of huge organizations. We are helping to obtain their landscaping desires for their corporations.
Our ventures include the help of landscape and design for some highly prestigious clientele with our affordable landscaping trees and shrubs.
From the Washington Monument, Trump Towers, Arlington National Cemetery to the State of Tennessee Department of Parks, we know quality. We price our nursery trees and shrubs affordable to obtain a large percentage of the customer’s landscaping jobs on a budget, not to mention those that are frugal with their resources and are looking for the best prices on quality landscaping trees and plants online.
We are a state-certified plant nursery. Another significant aspect of our online service is that we were voted best online plant nursery for three years. One of the main reasons our online store has succeeded so much is because of the wide variety of garden accessories that we have to offer. The prices are low and affordable, which is perfect for anyone who is on a budget. Part of our inventory can also include berry plants, moss, and conifers.

Hi Tammy: I hope you had a great summer and at least got to take a vacation between being deluged with nursery sales! We just got back from visiting my middle son and his wife in Texas. I’d never been to Texas before and was quite surprised at all the green there was – I thought Texas was supposed to be primarily hot desert and cactus! We went on parts of Route 66, which had all the great 50’s nostalgic buildings: mom and pop motels, soda fountains, gas stations. We met my oldest son and his wife and second oldest son and his girlfriend in Vegas on the way back. I think we all gained at least a few pounds eating at the buffets there! I love the morning glories I ordered from you, and my two little pecan trees are doing well (one is already getting bushy on the top). I haven’t got the French morning glories you talked about out of my mind – I really would love to have those, Tammy. I am happy to pay something for them and the s/h or at least let me pay for the s/h. I’m very grateful for this and very excited to grow these morning glories. Please let me know how much and how I should pay you. Thank you again so much!
Best wishes, Dezra
Tn, Could you use some happy news? Here it is: W.O.W.! Y’all outdid yourselves again, sending us bigger, better baby dogwood trees than we had expected (or probably paid for). Just as you had assured me, they made it through the extra week+ just fine nestled in potting soil in my brother-in-law’s garage. I wish you could have seen the crowd and heard people’s comments when they came through the line at our THIRD Lee’s Trees event on the 12th…Over and over again, folks commented on how healthy-looking the little trees were and what large, robust root systems they had. More than 200 people came from all over the New River Valley to adopt one, some waiting in line as long as 45 minutes (one gentleman stood there with an oxygen tank!)
Many told of their success with trees adopted in previous years, with one lady even bringing photos of her trees to show us that they are thriving). Several asked about our source, and I wonder if you might want to send some flyers or other promotional literature to give out next year. One newspaper editor called me for comments before the event based on an earlier letter that I had sent you posted on your website. I am so grateful to have T.N. Nursery as our partner in this living memorial to our Mama…Heartfelt thanks to you, Di, and all of your staff for everything you have done to help make Lee’s Trees become an annual event in southwest Virginia.

I ordered plants for a restoration project, and they were indeed specimens as the claim! I was amazed at the knowledge Tammy had. She never let her knowledge “go to her head’.She helped me figure out what I needed in what soil conditions, the cheapest plants for the job, and an excellent way to be treated with unsurpassed customer service! The nicest people are answering the phones to date I’ve ever experienced! Pamela Barnes P Barnes/Long Island Planting Committee THANK YOU so much for your VERY KIND attention to detail–I am happy to be doing business with a hands-on company like T.N. Nursery–the first of many orders. I am sure!!!! 🙂 Best regards to you, Dennis, Tammy & Susan,

I think bare root trees are the way to go. I have looked around at different nurseries and think the prices at T.N. nursery look the best to me. I can’t wait to get started on our project. Our property will look so much nicer after the trees are planted. Nashville Tennessee Condo Association Landscape Nursery.
My request was a slightly odd one – I needed to get deciduous trees to Arizona! As part of a new series for the Discovery channel, we wanted to film buds opening with time-lapse photography. Tammy completely understood what we needed, the time deadline we were up against, and the problems we had previously encountered with suppliers. Filming for Discovery always means going that extra mile – Tammy immediately identified trees perfect for our needs and shipped and got them to the set on time, arriving in excellent condition. They were ready for us to begin filming! A massive thank you to Tammy and the team at T.N. Nursery for their excellent service and quality of trees – and for saving the day!

I just wanted to let you know. I ordered 25 pear trees from you; I was VERY HAPPY with the trees and how they were shipped and handled. I have now ordered 25 more trees and blueberry bushes. Thank you very much!

I just wanted to take a moment to “thank you” for your outstanding customer service. My plants arrived in just three days, and they exceeded my expectations. T.N. Nursery had the lowest price, fast delivery, and excellent service!
Thanks, Doug Bowmer firstname.lastname@example.org Bridgeton CT

Dear Tammy, this is to say a heartfelt “Thank You” to everyone at Tennessee Nursery for helping my sister and me launch “Lee’s Trees,” a living memorial to our mother, Lois “Lee” Weiss Gilmore. Mama dearly loved trees, and when she died last April, we decided to establish an event for Mother’s Day weekend where You would offer pink dogwood seedlings to those willing to plant and care for them. Pink dogwoods were chosen because pink was Mama’s favorite color (it is also the color associated with finding a cure for cancer) because they are excellent plants for wildlife and are considered by many as symbolic of the Resurrection. Our goal is to distribute 10,000 trees in Virginia’s New River Valley by 2024, which would have been “Lee’s” 100th birthday. Thanks to your involvement, we’re on our way!
A year ago, when this idea was forming, I frantically searched the Internet to find a source for seedlings. Discovering your company has proved to be a true blessing. The baby dogwoods you delivered were very healthy and much bigger than I expected; they were carefully packed and arrived right on time. Over the past twelve months, we have frequently received status reports about how well they are growing. This year’s Adoption Day will be Saturday, May 7, 2011, beginning at 9 a.m. in the parking lot of Wade’s Supermarket, 510 Roanoke Street, Christiansburg, Virginia. 500 pink “Cherokee Princess” dogwoods (grown with love in Tennessee) will be available, free of charge on a first-come basis. Again, many thanks to all of you.
Blessings, Joanna Gilmore Angle Chester, SC
Dear Tennessee Nursery,
The selection of naturalization plants you have is lovely. I had difficulty finding Aralia Spinosa, perfect quality plants that wouldn’t cost me an arm and a leg to ship. Your bare root plants worked great both on the cost and quality end. Also, thank you for your promptness in shipping. I’m in Kansas, I ordered on a Saturday evening, and the plants were here on Tuesday morning. We will do business in the future. Thank You,
Kiel Snyder Sedgwick County Zoo – Horticulture Dept. M.S.
Tennessee Wholesale Nursery is by far the BEST as far as I am concerned. They have good quality stock, very reasonable rates, and they are always available for questions and ordering. The website is easy to use, and the availability is always there to keep the customer updated. We usually pick up our order, and it is always ready on time and with a friendly face to greet us.
Thank you, Tennessee Wholesale Nursery, Nursery you make my day! Bloomsnbuds Excellent nursery stock! It arrives very quickly and is well packaged. I will be buying from TN NurseryNursery for a very long time!
Iris Gardner – Phoenix, AZ
We have enjoyed doing business with TN NurseryNursery all of our plants arrive in good condition and are of nice size with a beautiful root system; the price can’t be beat.
Country Lane Garden – Roanoak VA
I would just like to thank you for all of the beautiful plants we have purchased from your company over the years. Every plant has been of superior quality with an excellent root system. We receive our orders in the fall and usually have 7 to 10-gallon plants ready to sell by the spring. The helpfulness and knowledge of the staff are unsurpassed. Your practice of running your business like a “family-owned” one makes the customer feel comfortable and not like dealing with mega-companies that we so often have to deal with. The shipping has always turned out well, and any problems I have encountered, which are very few, have always been dealt with in a fast, courteous manner. Once again, thank you for superior service and a superior product.

Clients are delighted, and the plants indeed thrived with her advice on what to choose in the sun, shade and moisture areas, etc. I am sure thankful there’s a site that’s excellent quality plants at reasonable prices.
Susan Sullivan – Ankorage AL
I opened a Nursery in N.C., and my first “big” order was from this company. I did not have very much capital to start with, so I had to pick and choose wisely. I made an excellent decision when I chose this company to furnish my bare rootstock. I received the excellent stock. It was bigger and better than I could have imagined. They set up delivery with one of their trucking agents. They kept me well informed when to expect the truck as well as handled all delivery arrangements. I liked this because I could do other things (instead of making arrangements to get it here). You can’t beat their prices! It is with great pleasure that I would recommend them to anyone.
I saw T.N. Nursery while web surfing and was intrigued by their product and price. I had some questions about its fern size and shipping dates, so I emailed them and was surprised to get an immediate answer. I was very uncomfortable about ordering and paying for many ferns from a source unknown to me. When my shipment arrived, I was pleasantly surprised. I could not believe the quality of these plants! This nursery went from making me uneasy to the top of my supplier list for quality and customer service.
Sandy Golay Golay Gardens
Best Dogwoods and Burning Bush I have received. The shipping time was quick, the service was outstanding, and the price was great.
Walter’s Garden Center
There was very cautious about internet ordering. That was an excellent experience. I am a small re-wholesaler, and the plants were more significant than I expected, appropriately packaged, and arrived on time.
I couldn’t find this volume of trees anywhere else in one nursery. I was Asking for 440 Large caliper trees was to us “impossible.”I called your toll-free #, and You did it within minutes. We had United come and pick them up, and we landscaped ten new Walmart Locations in Pennsylvania. What a find! All in one place! Price for quality hands down-your the best!
Franklin Buchanan-Landscape Services, Baltimore Maryland
Purchased 3100 mums for our project graduation-delivered the day of distribution as promised. Our customers that purchased got them straight off the truck. we do not have to handle or care for them at all. These people do what they say and deliver an excellent product. By the way-I need this many more for Fall 2007!!!!!

Thank you for the prompt replacement for the ‘sickly’ tree.
Thank you, Tammy. You were very conscientious and considerate to keep me posted on the essential details about my order. I greatly appreciated it! Good customer service goes an l-o-n-g way. Even when sometimes it doesn’t seem like it, good service always comes out on top 🙂
I know I will spread the word about Tn Nursery and how my experience was nothing short of excellent.
All my best,
Betsy Gallagher Philly PA
I liked the quality of plants….the relative speed with which they arrived, and even a speedy refund as some plants were out of stock. All in all. A good experience.
Earthwurx Rhode Island
I want to thank you for your excellent service. We are a start-up farm in Cumberland County, TN, and wanted to spend our money in a local market. We received 200 blueberry plants for your nursery in excellent condition in February.
Two and a half months later, the plants are doing wonderfully well. So far, the plants are very healthy, and we haven’t lost a single plant.
Next fall, we are looking forward to adding to our orchard and will use TNNURSERY again for all our needs.
C.A.M.E. Farms – Long Beach CA
I was so happy to go to my door to find the pachysandra and in such a beautiful condition. Thank you so much for your prompt attention to my order. I will to happy to tell everyone what good service I have had with T.N. Nursery.
The plant material is excellent, and the service is prompt.
Georgia McCoy Dallas TX

Dear TN Nursery,
We at J.R.M. Nursery would like to thank you for the quality plants we received in March/April 2011.
O.M.G.!!!! Thx you so much for the prompt order!!! It arrived at FedEx last night. So the family project for the week will go ahead on schedule. Except for the downpours today!!! We begin with Paula, a pleased and satisfied customer that you shipped to meet our family vacation. I will be ordering again!! You guys ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks for the delivery of my recent order. I noticed that some of your items, like allium five-year plants, mention years. What does this indicate? Lifespan? Time to maturity?
Thanks again. Great products.
James L. Torrens
Great plants. I wish I’d known about your site earlier. I ordered $300 worth of hostas and paid double at another nursery.
I love being able to go to your site every year and order all of my plants from you; it saves me time and tons of money.
I’m excited to see my fern plants come up. I hope they do as well as my Autumn Blaze Maples.
I love seeing my yard bloom and pop up with life each year. All of the plants that I have ordered from you are doing wonderfully!
Tammy, thank you for all your info. My plants did well, even in that dry area.
Dee Dee Haskins
I envy all of my neighbors, family, and friends every year. They beg to come over and have playtime in our backyard so that they can vast at all the plants.
So glad to see all your fields in videos. That saves us from another 8-hour drive.
I love how your site has been redone. It looks wonderful. So many other sites have small pictures and very blunt descriptions, not with T.N. Nursery.
All of you have a great selection and everything I search for, I see you!
I was worried about the quality because of the low prices; You have no worries now. I’ve been a 10 + yr customer.
We order 200 pink dogwood trees a year in the memorial of my mother. I never had one complaint! Now beat that.
Trilliums normally don’t do well here. Tammy told me about the toad shade. All have come up except 3 out of 100,
so that’s a good stand.
I love T.N. Nursery. The customer service and quality of plants are to die for.
TN Nursery has good quality plants. I’m shocked at the quality of the price.
I’m in awe at my flame azaleas. They are beautiful.
Thank You, Tammy- You’ve made our Discovery Channel Shoot So Much Better Sending Me Trees Dormant, Podding in Bud, and Producing Leaves- This will be a fantastic series. I will drop you an email when it’s schedules
Los Angeles, CA
I’m sorry to hear about the blight getting your black walnuts this year. Mine is producing well I bought from you. Maybe I can send you a couple of mines to enjoy. Happy New Year! Laura Messing
I purchased several trees from T.N. Nursery last year. These trees have done excellent and have met all of my expectations. They were received in top quality, and I have no complaints about this nursery. This nursery is FANTASTIC! I will be ordering again in the future.
As a florist, I purchase a large number of flowers every month from different sites. The only site that stuck out and appealed to me was T.N. Nursery. They have the best customer service I have ever received from any other site.
I wondered how to make my yard look very “appealing” to the people who pass by. I was referred by a friend to check out T.N. Nursery, and I have never seen a selection so broad of trees in my life. Thank you for everything you have done for my family and me.
Thanks to T.N. Nursery, I now have my orchard In the field behind my house. I have never been so pleased to walk out my back door and smell the aroma of all the different fruits that are growing.
I needed some plants to place around my small pond, and then I would be done with my gardening work for the year. The site T.N. Nursery had everything I could imagine for water plants. Thank you, T.N. Nursery.
I needed a different assortment of flowers to go in my garden. You found a vast number of different flowers at T.N. Nursery. I have never had an easier way to find what I needed. I appreciate the excellent customer service that I received on my order.
I received this order last week and did the planting this weekend. I was delighted with the size and how healthy the pachysandra and ferns looked.
Thank you very much! That’s very good of you. Just for future reference, would it help you if I were to send an email or call to check the availability of specific plants before I send an order? I appreciate your plants – they are some of the most excellent, well-developed nursery stock I have received! Just an extra word – The tulip trees didn’t go to waste! There is a little knoll behind our pasture that is a bit deprived of trees (A few thorny locusts), so I planted a few up there. Excellent customer service you have! I don’t know if I’ve dealt with better in the nursery trade! Thank you.
I thought I’d drop you a note and let you know I sold all the dogwoods I bought from you. Not one complaint about the wrong color. Wow! That’s a change from what I am used to.
John Woodard – John’s Roadside Nursery – Monroe NC
Tn Nursery has good quality. I couldn’t believe the prices for wholesale quantities. To be honest, I thought they are selling trash. I was shocked to see hand grafted dogwoods and fruit trees. I will be back but don’t you up the prices for this feedback. And I expect a discount for giving it too 🙂
Randall Green – Somerset, KY 1-18-15
We were so happy to pull up and see what large trees! They were so large we couldn’t get them in the ground by hand. We had to hire a crew to plant them. They were on large. I will send pics of them in the fall when they are in their glory.
Raye Crutchton, Atlanta Ga
Good trees + good customer service. You can’t beat this—especially this day and time. The prices were reasonable too.
Zimmermans’ Lawn Care, Ann Arbor. MI
I wanted to say I loved Mr. Brown, your camel. I went to the store and bought him a couple of sundrops, lol. He guzzles them down. I wish id taken a pic of this. He was more interesting than the trees, but I have resold all of them, and we paid off our van! I will be back down this spring. I set up flea markets and sell the hound out of those flowering trees you sold me.
