Need help here? Ask for Don, the kindest and most knowledgeable person I have ever encountered at a garden center. There's not a whole lot that he doesn't know, but he is simultaneously ready to admit when the conversation/questions veer outside his realm of experience (a fabulous quality in a nursery employee). We visited Shoal Creek after inheriting a vegetable garden in the house we just moved into. I am new to Texas gardening and Don patiently and happily explained all I needed to know with regard to making the best of the second growing season this summer. The nursery itself is beautifully maintained and their plants, containers, and supplies are priced no more highly than one would expect from a private owned nursery. This will be our go-to neighbourhood place from now on. more »

Not a comfortable place to be unless you look a certain way. I had employees with their eyes on me the entire time I was there. I don't steal. My mom's a police officer. I will never come back. I just wanted to gets some gloves and get pricing on some organic soil for my large front yard vegetable garden. more »

Love the variety and staff, always spend too much money so don't frequent too much but love to peruse and find little unique plants. Everyone is always so helpful and great when it comes to what pesticides or fertilizers will work for any issue. Definitely recommend Shoal Creek Nursery and their amazing staff! more »

Don't bother trying to call them on the phone. Rings and rings and either call gets disconnected, or someone answers "hello" and then hangs up immediately. Hours listed here differed from their website and I just wanted to call to find out the correct ones, and ended up spending ten minutes to find out. more »

Had a great experience. They met all of my slightly ridiculous questions professionally and with humor. This is the only place I will buy plants for my yard. Everything I have ever purchased here has done beautifully and is thriving. more »

I've tried this place twice with rude service both times. As sad as it was to go to Home Depot instead of this local nursery a block from my place, the service was better and the prices were much better at the chain store. The plant selection was not better, of course, but it had what I needed. Maybe I just went on a bad day for the staff. more »

I am shocked that I have not yet reviewed this amazing place, seeing as how almost all my houseplants are from here and they are ALL THRIVING! Great service, from the cute dog that greets you at the door to all the people that work there...incredible selection of the most beautiful plants, planters and anything you may need to maintain them.I love this place.Sometimes I duck in there just to be surrounded by an indoor forest without even buying anything. more »
