Our Company History

Minor’s Garden Center started back in 1932 when Earl Minor, Don Minor’s father, started in the nursery business selling plants and shrubs from the back of his pick up truck. As time went on, he managed a small retail sales yard on Appleton Avenue and Silver Spring Drive in Milwaukee.

The current location, 7777 North 76th Street, was purchased in 1968 and features over 20 acres with a wide variety of trees, shrubs, evergreens, perennials, annuals and much more. We are well known for our great selection of unusual and hard to find plants. With our vast assortment in various sizes, you have the ability to select your plants and complete your design all at one nursery.

Minor’s Nursery Division has approximately 120 acres of nursery stock under cultivation at several different locations. Our unique combination of sheer size, expertise and commitment to customer service has made Minor’s a household name among landscapers in the know.
