Family tree Nursery is fantastic! It is a family owned business that has been local in Kansas City for years! There is a wide variety of product, the staff is incredibly knowledgeable and more than willing to help with any questions!

Have had incredible buying experience from this place. They take lots of time with you to help decide the best landscaping plants for your sun/shade situation, the look you want, and the maintenance you want to do. Already liked them for that, but discovered this weekend they have the absolute best picture-taking Santa in all of KC, with hot apple cider and beautiful poinsettias of every imaginable variety. So worth a trip from anywhere in KC!

Always good, healthy plants. Staff all knowledgable and very helpful. Family owned business and they stand behind their product. The also give back to the community. I highly recommend this nursery.
Janna L

Highly recommended! I went in early in the season looking for Spring bulbs, and it wasn’t super busy. I spoke with a wonderfully helpful man there who knew seeds and what was available and when and how to plant them from years and years of personal experience. I love to know details and he had a depth of knowledge that impressed me fully. I had a similar great time speaking with someone outside in the trees and shrubs. I am absolutely going back for more, and to browse looking for ideas!

I went to pick out a sweet little Japanese Maple to complete the front yard landscaping in our new home. There were all shapes and sizes of beautiful trees to choose from. I was greeted by several employees and well educated by the gentleman that helped me select my tree. Beautiful everything & excellent customer service!! I won’t shop elsewhere.

I have shopped at the Farley location for 30 years, at least. Love the place and they stand behind their service.

I must say this may be my favorite nursery/greenhouse in the KC area. Great selection of bedding plants, and vegetables, but their tropical and succulent selections are amazing. The first time I visited, I got there about 30 minutes before closing, and my girlfriend asked if we could return the next morning. It’s not too small, and yet not too big to where it seems you’re just another customer.


Every time we visit Family Tree we are amazed how friendly and helpful they are. From getting the right tomatoes in the Spring to mums and terrariums this fall. Thanks for getting us hooked on succulents Sandy!

A Family Owned & Operated Nursery

What sets Family Tree Nursery apart is our passion for plants; a passion that began 50 years ago when a young dental student followed his passion and transferred to the horticulture program at Kansas State University. Ron Nelson opened the doors of the first store at 85th Street and Farley as a wholesale growing facility providing other outlets with high-quality gift plants, like Poinsettias and Mums in 1964.

This love for plants has since evolved into three retail locations; with the acquisition of the Shawnee store in 1981 and Liberty location in 1988 joining the Overland Park location.  We are also proud to say in 1986 we added our growing facility, with over 6 acres of covered greenhouses to grow our award-winning mums, poinsettias, perennials, bedding plants and hanging baskets and deliver them daily to our stores.

With over 100 full and part-time employees, under the helm of Ron’s son, Eric, since 2007. Family Tree Nursery continues to provide superior products with the knowledge, service and experience to back it up.

Our bedding plants look better because they’re grown better – we grow almost every bedding plant we sell at our own greenhouses. We travel nationwide scouting trial gardens and test sites to uncover the best varieties for our tough growing conditions and continually push to grow them bigger and better. We invite you to walk through the doors of any of our unique locations and experience the magic that has made Family Tree Nursery a premier garden center destination.

Family Tree Nursery is a team of passionate horticulturists providing a variety of gardening products that ensure a unique shopping experience. A well informed, courteous staff, backed by years of experience, knowledge and integrity, guarantees the success of our customers.
