Founder Pete Pike served at the Naval Air Station in Chamblee, GA in the 1950’s when the idea to open his own Nursery took hold. With “more nerve than money”, he opened his first location. By 2006, Pike Nurseries expanded into Charlotte, North Carolina and the next year the Lindbergh City Center store opened right next to MARTA – the rapid transit train system. (Pictures from that location.)
Independent Garden Centers across the US met the struggle against “big box” stores by combining together. Armstrong Garden Centers from California bought into Pike Nurseries and formed Pike Nurseries Acquisition, LLC.
That allowed the stores to continue to operate and “serve [their] loyal customers without a disruption in business” across all 19 locations as well as their own growing facilities and a Landscaping Services division. Pike's strives "to provide horticultural expertise, the best quality plants and products, and exceptional service - all in the name of inspiring our communities to play in the dirt and garden without guesswork” all 19 locations.
High Tide Aromi Blossoms - dark yellow on petal makes flowers look creamy-colored from away.
Looked like my front yard needed some Native Azaleas (deciduous not evergreen) so I went to Pike's - now open regular hours -- 8am to 7pm -- to search. Found a "High Tide Aromi Azalea" hybrid and brought it home to plant in front of my house. That's it in the photo above.
Pike Nurseries offer such a variety of items that anyone and everyone can dream about the yard as they walk around the delightful displays.
Heading out to Pike's is like going on vacation!
The only difference is that when you get home, these souveniers demand immediate work!
