North Haven Gardens:
Best Garden Supply/Nursery

For more than 70 years now, North Haven Gardens has been meeting the gardening needs of Dallasites, offering anything and everything you might need to make your garden, your lawn or, heck, even the interior of your home a beautiful oasis. That includes flowers, vegetables, trees and shrubs, seeds, décor and, yes, advice on what to plant, when to plant and where to plant it. They don’t have landscape design services, but they do have a landscape concierge service that will offer up some suggestions as well as gardening kits, indoor plants, native plants, plants for pollinator gardens and plants for a vegetable garden.

That long and loving legacy nearly came to an end about two and a half years ago when one of the 10 tornadoes that devastated North Texas on Oct. 20, 2019, slammed through North Haven, leaving the nursery at 7700 Northaven Road in shambles. It took a lot of dedication and a lot of hard work, but the North Haven crew had their business back up and running just about a month later, re-opening on Nov. 25, just in time for the holiday season. So if you need anything that has anything to do with gardening, make sure you check them out.
