Looking to add some green to your space? San Antonio is home to many great local nurseries and gardening shops. Here are three of our favorites to help get you started!

Rainbow Gardens

This gorgeous nursery is worth a visit for the views alone, but just try and stop yourself from picking up a plant or two once you get there. Rainbow Gardens is a San Antonio gem, boasting a huge inventory that’s constantly updated with new items. To whet your appetite, you can check out all the latest arrivals on their Instagram page before you go.

Shades of Green

In the market for some indoor plants that will thrive with just the sunshine through your window? Shades of Green has you covered. Want some outdoor plants you can keep on your patio or balcony? Yep, they carry those, too. There are so many options that it’d be hard to know where to start, were it not for the super-helpful staff. If you’re new to the world of plants, Shades of Green also sells all the gardening tools and supplies you’ll need to get you set up.

Fanick’s Garden Center

A family-owned business operating in San Antonio since 1939, Fanick’s Garden Center offers a wide selection of well-organized, healthy plants at their 70-acre site. Specializing in trees, shrubs, roses, and organic fertilizers, they also sell a variety of houseplants that are ideal for apartment living. Plus, the shop features cute animal statues throughout – and that counts for something, right? Backed by a friendly, knowledgeable staff, Fanick’s is a must-visit for all plant enthusiasts.
