Spring produces the urge to dig in the dirt and plant beautiful gardens. Guerin Nurseries has always made it easy. Now they make it fun with multiple shops nestled into over 40,000 square feet of greenhouses, offering everything from pansy to purses and trees to treasures.
Guerin Nurseries, owned by Phyllis and Glenn Guerin, has been making Granbury/Acton beautiful for over 30 years. Phyllis shares their philosophy:
“If you do what you like and like what you do, it shows.” It’s certainly evident that Phyllis and Glenn like what they do as Guerin’s continues to expand, with more plans for the future.
Guerin Nurseries started as a wholesale grower, but because of customer demands, it transformed into a retail operation known for its extensive selection of perennials.
“By growing these perennials, along with many other varieties, right on the premises, we are able to insure that only nurtured, healthy plants are sold to customers,” Glenn adds.
When you drive up to Guerin’s spacious parking area, it’s hard to realize there are seven beautiful acres. You can leisurely shop in the main greenhouse with 26,000 square feet of plants – the largest greenhouse in the metroplex area.
The new tropical greenhouse offers a wide selection of ferns, palms, bougainvilleas, alamandas, passion vines, bird of paradise and much more. Perfect for your pool or bringing the outdoors to your sunroom.
To keep your garden and lawn in top shape, stop in the Rustic Store for soils, mulches, fertilizers, insecticides and a complete line of organics.
Need to add some shade to your yard this summer? Then visit the tree and shrub area where you can select from many varieties of large trees.
Don’t miss the experience of the Home Store with a huge selection of beautiful items for you and your home. Give your taste buds a treat from the gourmet foods section, such as recently added flavored coffee beans and blended teas sold by the ounce. The Home Store also offers condiments, jellies, relishes, mixes and more.
While your husband shops for another tool, you can accessorize with jewelry, designer handbags, wallets, watches and scarves. Or you might select from colognes, candles and soaps. Add the finishing touch with home décor, pillows, lamps, decorative fans, artwork and mirrors. Before you leave, grab some creative inspiration from a gardening book or cookbook.
After shopping for yourself, pick up something for those you love. With so many choices, nothing makes a better gift for a special event or holiday than a gift card from Guerin Nurseries.
Don’t miss the popular Guerin Nurseries’ Anniversary Celebration with free hot dogs and beer. Lots of folks come out to help Phyllis and Glenn mark another year in the community.
The Guerins give back to the community through their work with Happy Hill Farm Academy, Susan G. Komen, Senior Source and the Alzheimer’s Association to name a few. Each year, Guerin Nurseries grows and donates the spring and fall colors planted at Happy Hill Farm Academy.
Even though Guerin’s has changed so much in the past few years, Phyllis and Glenn plan to add even more wonderful products. Expanding the Home Store with an outdoor room and house patio furniture, pottery, fountains and garden art is first on their list and then build an outdoor eatery – maybe steaks or hamburgers.
Treat your spring fever with a visit to Guerin Nurseries where you’ll be greeted by a friendly, helpful staff, ready to answer your questions and load your purchases in your car. Visit Guerin’s where everyone likes what they do. It shows!
