Buck Jones Nursery

Buck Jones Nursery is happy to be celebrating their fiftieth anniversary in 2022. While the fifteen-acre landscape supply nursery in Hickory Flat opened in 1992, owner Arthur A. “Buck” Jones and his wife, Mary Jane Jones began their company in 1972 from the headquarters located in Lawrenceville, GA.

The company is still family-owned with several members of the Jones family taking active rolls.  Buck was a man everyone admired, sadly passing away in 1999. He was dedicated to helping his customers become successful and inspiring them through plants. He instilled principles of respect for customers that are carried on today by a dedicated staff of experienced horticulturalists.

As the spring planting season begins, the staff at Buck Jones Nursery invites you to visit the Hickory Flat location. By working with high-quality growers from across the United States, the nursery supplies the newest and highest quality plants on the market.
