Beautifying gardens and backyards since 1962, Knox Nursery houses more than 5,000 varieties of plants throughout its expansive 23 acres of production. Chlorophyll cultivators can enhance even sun-drenched terraces and garden patches exposed to the most abrasive heat with a flat (16) of SunPatiens. With their thicker leaf walls, New Guinea flowers, and robotic misters affixed to each pedal, SunPatiens thrive in the excessively warm and humid temperatures that typically wilt less hardy greenery. The sun-loving SunPatiens can grow to a height of about 18–30 inches and can bloom through the summer and even endure a light frost. Alternately, flora fawners can also opt to vivify conservatories by choosing from the nursery's expansive menu of plants and flowers, including 3-gallon selections of lorapetalums ($9.99), hibiscus ($9.99), and knockout roses ($19.99).
The staff at Knox Nursery cradle each of their precious seedlings in the eco-friendly embrace of Ellepots. Composed of degradable paper that promotes more air exchange than plastic pots, Ellepots facilitate healthier root systems, faster growth, and well-adjusted blooms less likely to experiment with discarded cigarette butts during turbulent teen years.
Knox Nursery, Inc.
Knox Nursery, Inc. started in 1962 on the Knox family's porch. Although the family-run nursery has grown to encompass more than 23 acres since then, the second-generation owners haven’t forgotten their humble beginnings, still emphasizing the down-home customer service that made the business what it is today. They and their staff lovingly harnesses the Floridian sunshine to produce plugs and liners, cultivating more than 5,000 plant varieties ranging in size from young ones destined for greenhouses to 4-inchers perfect for landscaping.
At the retail center, staffers stand ready to help green-thumbed shoppers to navigate the selection of annuals and perennials or pick out shrubs to block views of money-filled swimming pools from jealous neighbors. Palms, trees, and vegetables await their chance to fill out gardens or finish landscapes.
