BRATCHER’S NURSERY & LANDSCAPING is excited to be celebrating 40 years of a family owned business in Northeast Texas in the town of Blossom. The nursery was originated by Larry and Wynell Bratcher and is located two miles east of Blossom on Farm Road 1502. The business was founded in 1978. The first greenhouse was located in the backyard of the home of Larry and Wynell Bratcher.
Today, the nursery is operating 18 greenhouses and 10 acres of growing fields for larger plant material and trees. The Bratchers enjoy growing most of the plant material and trees. This enables the nursery to have plenty of material on hand for all landscaping needs for residential and business services. Bratcher’s nursery grows everything from Azaleas, Boxwoods, Hollies, Hydrangeas, Grasses and much more. They have also just recently added several perennial lines by popular demand. Larry Bratcher maintains and monitors the tree production and grows Live Oaks, Maples, Bald Cypress, Oaks and many more tree varieties. Many of the fruit trees and roses they carry are from popular wholesale distributors such as Dave Wilson’s nursery. Larry also grows all the Crape Myrtles of new and hardy varieties. The retail store has a broad selection of organic products, fertilizers, potting soil, weed killers, and soil amendments. Wynell added some fun lines for gardeners gifts such as garden flags, garden shoes, and pottery, as well as, gift cards. The outdoor nursery provides a large bedding plant area for tropical, annuals and perennials. They offer bulk hardwood mulch.
