A Note from Roger Mayes:
LOUISIANA NURSERY was established in 1983 with one Baton Rouge location. The business has grown dramatically over the years to become one of the 10 largest independent retail gardening centers in the south. (45th in the US.)
We now have 4 Baton Rouge area locations, each with 2.5 or more acres, and each uniquely different. Our stores are definitely a fun place to visit at any time of the year.
Besides our year around stock of plants we also offer a unique gift department, several collectable departments and a huge Christmas decorating selection.
Our goals are to provide you with good selection, good quality and good service. We hope our web site will help you.
Our company provides a complete retail nursery along with complete lines of gardening supplies, accessories, gardening decor and an immense huge pottery yard.
