Family-Owned and Operated
Pleasant Cove Nursery functions as a grower of landscape and ornamental nursery stock. We grow over 375 plant varieties, and sell our quality nursery stock to landscape contractors, garden centers, re-wholesale distributors, nurseries and governmental organizations. Our customers are located across the United States, but the majority are concentrated east of the Mississippi River.
John R. Collier and his oldest son, John R. Collier, Jr., founded Pleasant Cove Nursery in the late 1950's. Younger sons—Robert, Frank and David—also joined the company as they each finished school.
The company was incorporated in 1969 and has since grown from a "backyard nursery" to a 20 farm, 500-acre facility, with an additional 25 acres for container production and propagation. Once staffed solely with Collier family members, the farm is now readied with a middle-management team made up of individual areas of expertise—that team directs over 100 employees working during peak seasons.
