About Calloway’s Nursery
As young boys, they played among the cross timbers and tanglewoods of North Texas. The natural world inspired them. As they matured they were drawn into the nursery business. Their paths crossed many times.
Love of the garden center trade brought them together in early 1986. They held visions of a new kind of nursery; they pooled resources to bring their vision to reality.
By the Spring of 1987, Jim Estill, John Cosby and John Peters were off and running! They opened four “Calloway’s Nursery” stores that year. Stores unlike any seen before with greenhouses that presented a “sea” of color: wave upon wave…more than 60,000 bedding plants. Never had customers seen so many choices! Beautiful, healthy choices!
That’s because the vision that Jim, John and John held for their company was based upon a new level of quality and service. To insure it, they worked with the best growers all over the country, but especially in North Texas, to develop high standards. Most now know that “Calloway’s Quality” stands above accepted trade offerings.
Today, the company operates 18 stores and continues to grow, attracting not only loyal patrons, but also the finest cadre of nursery professionals in the state! Calloway’s employs more Texas Master Certified Nursery Professionals than any other retail organization.
Calloway’s Nursery. It’s home grown. Of, by and for Texans.
