Great place. Good assortment of plants and very helpful staff. The only reason it gets 4 stars is that it's a bit pricey.

Always so nice visiting (and buying yet another new plant) and walking around, especially around the little pond 😉

Green Thumb Plant Nursery has become my local go-to neighborhood plant nursery and gardened supply store. My life as a plant parent and Gardner has thrived because of this store and business. If I am not looking for something to buy, I find a lot of joy in just walking around the nursery grounds. If I'm not buying items for my home, I can also make a quick stop to buy a house plant as a gift for a friend or a loved one. (Thank you, Green Thumb!

Green Thumb has such a great selection of both usual and unusual plants, and their staff is super helpful and informative. I brought in a drawing of my small patio and what limitations I had with sunlight/time of day, and got a list of suggested plants that were all winners!I love even just visiting the store. The mantis, is enjoying the flowers from GT.

I've passed by this nursery for five years and am kicking myself for not visiting it sooner. It looks tiny from the I-5 or from El Toro, so I've been sleeping on Green Thumb (ha). However, when you enter the nursery--WOW, is it huge! It has so much variety in plants and definitely the ones that plant enthusiasts want. The pricing is great too!
