Kiefer Nursery was founded in the mid-1990s on a 12-acre portion of what was once part of Pine Grove Farm. The land on which Kiefer Nursery sits is a subdivided parcel given to one of the daughters of GV and Minnie Mann, the founders of Pine Grove Farm (est. 1910). Our office building was built in 1926 for their daughter and son-in-law (Mr. Basden). The nursery land was purchased in 1995 from John and Ellen Basden Hamm (the granddaughter of GV and Minnie Mann).
Kiefer Nursery was founded in September of 1995. Originally only a small retail nursery, Kiefer has grown into one of the largest nurseries in Durham, specializing in aquatics, perennials, shrubs, and trees. Since its inception, Kiefer Nursery has strived to offer value in the plants and products it sells. Kiefer is committed to maintaining a unique offering of unusual landscape perennials, shrubs, and trees for both retail and wholesale customers. Many of the plants grown at Kiefer Nursery are not available at other local nurseries or chain retailers.
We offer both retail nursery plants for the avid gardener and wholesale nursery crops to the Triangle’s finest landscape contractors. Our plant selection is second to none in diversity and value.
The unusual mixture of quality nursery plants, interesting landscape displays, a deer-resistant garden walk, and knowledgeable sales staff is the reason why customers have been purchasing their landscape plants from Kiefer since 1995.
With the addition of Miss Lily’s Pad, home and garden gift shop, Kiefer’s is truly a destination for the entire family. Visit our 50,000-gallon koi pond and feed the fish! Stroll through our informative deer-resistant garden. Or just relax in one of our outdoor living rooms. Kiefer Nursery is sure to offer you a unique garden shopping experience.
Kiefer’s is conveniently located in southern Durham. Kiefer Nursery is just minutes from Chapel Hill, Cary, Raleigh, Morrisville, and Hillsborough.
