A family-owned business, Reid’s Nursery puts the customer first. We love all aspects of gardening and enjoy helping people get the most out of their yard and garden.
We now have fresh, aerated compost tea available everyday at the nursery. Compost tea is a microbial soil amendment. Bring your own container!
We carry many different types of trees. There are Mexican Sycamores, Fan-Tex Ash and Monterrey oaks for shade, Retamas, Kidneywood (attracts pollinators), Goldenball lead trees, Arroyo Sweetwood and Mexican plum trees for spring and summer flowering, along with cedar elms, southern wax myrtles, bald cypress, Possum haw, Lacey oak (a good choice for smaller yards), Texas persimmon, Eve’s Necklace, Texas Mountain Laurels, Yaupon Hollies, Montezuma cypress, live oaks and others. We also have shrubs such as Xylosmas, Texas sage, Sandankwa viburnums, gray cotoneaster, dwarf burford hollies and more.
Crape Myrtles should be in everyone’s yard, in our opinion. They have long-lasting blooms, they thrive in our hot, sunny summers and, once established, are low water users. Crape Myrtles come in a variety of sizes and colors from vibrant red to hot pink to purple to cool white. In the summer, they produce their fragrant, colorful blooms that make people look twice. In the fall, the leaves turn yellow, red and orange. In the winter, the interesting-looking branches are lovely and elegant. Though Crape Myrtles aren’t a Texas native, they are a well-adapted tree for this area and will beautify your yard.
We also have loquat, pomegranate and olive trees, along with other fruit trees. For summer color, we have Pride of Barbados as well as Mexican Bird of Paradise. Planting a variety of trees will look wonderful and provide seasonal interest.
On the benches are herbs such as lemon verbena, rosemary, Mexican Mint marigold, sweet marjoram and several different mints. We carry Fernleaf lavender, salad burnet, lime balm, culinary sage and other useful herbs, with more getting put out each week. We grow many of our herbs and always maintain them with natural methods, using organic products.
For the butterfly lovers, we have many plants that attract butterflies. We carry several different varieties of butterfly bush and Tropical Red milkweed, as well as different salvias and lantana plants, which are well-known butterfly magnets. We have several different passion vines which not only are beautiful to look at, they also attract butterflies. Check back for the new and returning varieties of flowers, herbs and vines that we offer.
