Heartland Nursery is the dream of Pete and Sherry Mistretta. We were first a fruit stand on Blue Ridge, then grew into a small 200’ x 200’ garden center called Blue Ridge Gardens. It was a very small lot with only 19 parking spaces, plus some creative grass parking. Back then, our customers knew us as the garden center with plants on the roof- not because it looked great but because there simply wasn’t enough space! Pete and Sherry had three children: Jen, Sam, and Rosie. If you were a customer at the time, you saw them running around playing and exploring. We were on Blue Ridge from 1972 to 2002 until we opened a few miles down the highway as Heartland Nursery. The beautiful, state of the art greenhouse has 80,000 square feet under glass and over 120 parking spaces. The greenhouse has large parking spaces and wide, even aisles. Our roof opens, which makes plants on the roof impossible! Pete got to enjoy his dream facility until he passed away from pancreatic cancer in 2006. We are proud to be an independent and family run business for over 40 years. And now that we’re coming up on almost half a century we think it’s time for a change for the better. We’ve chosen to become Sprout Nursery, a more welcoming and friendly brand. Something we feel will reflect us more as a company .
