Humble Beginnings

 

Rambo Nursery was founded in 1983 by Sam Rambo, whose humble beginnings consisted of one greenhouse where he grew annuals and perennials for local landscapers and retailers in his home town of Marietta, Georgia.

 

Going door to door, Sam sold hanging baskets, ferns, marigolds and poinsettias. The scope of the business soon expanded to growing trees and shrubs, setting the stage for establishing Rambo Nursery’s first wholesale yard in Acworth, Georgia.

 

Rambo Nursery has grown to encompass over a million square feet of heated greenhouse space and 120 acres of outside production. There are two facilities within 150 miles of The Home Depot stores it serves, making Rambo Nursery truly a local grower.

 

Rambo Nursery & The Home Depot

 

The relationship between Rambo Nursery and The Home Depot goes back some 20 years ago, when a Home Depot buyer first visited one of Rambo’s small garden shops and made a purchase of hanging baskets and 6-packs. This was a turning point for our founder. 

Today, Rambo Nursery is the exclusive vendor for 87 Home Depot stores in Georgia, Alabama and Tennessee, serving as a single-source supplier of locally grown annuals, perennials, roses, succulents and other specialty items. 

The Rambo team takes pride in providing high quality locally grown plants, supported by in-store customer service that keeps customers coming back year after year.

 

 

 

"We are consistently looking for innovation that will excite
and inspire the landscape professional and the home gardener.
A customer’s success in their garden is our top priority." 

    -Sam Rambo, President & CEO.
