Our Story

For 45 years, Frantz Wholesale Nursery, LLC has built a tradition of Quality and Excellent Customer Service.

It is not easy to be a stand-out grower. We realized a long time ago that there are a lot of mighty good ones in our industry. Back then our challenge was to build a reputation as a company that is willing to go the extra mile to work closely with our customers, to help solve your special needs. And of course, deliver only the finest quality plant material.

Founded by our parents Tim and Mitzi Frantz, we started with humble beginnings on 1.5 acres in 1978. Dad’s dream was to be self employed. He and Mom worked side by side, selling plants to local landscapers and garden centers. We have steadily grown over the 40+ years, today farming 500 acres of nursery stock in Hickman California. We ship our diverse selection of container grown trees, shrubs, and grasses to a diverse customer base West of the Rockies.

We value our employees and their families, and understand their importance to the company’s success. Our quality product is made possible by our highly skilled team, some whom have worked for the company for over 40 years.

We will always stay true to our roots and our community. As boys, we used to ride along with our father delivering trees and plants across the state. Each Summer we worked a different position, learning every job imaginable. Through this upbringing our family has built a culture founded on quality products, teamwork, and putting the customer first. Old fashion values that endure like the trees we grow – hopefully for generations to come.
