A visit to Hicks Nurseries is a family tradition celebrated by many generations. We often hear from our customers that we are their “happy place”, their “breath of fresh air”, their “magical destination”. Create your own family tradition and make memories with loved ones all year long. After all, “it’s not just a nursery, it’s an experience”. Enjoy ample parking and safe, spacious grounds.
SUMMER DISPLAY GARDENS
As our customers have told us “It’s like a walk in the park!” and a shopping experience like no other. Whether you are looking for the perfect trees & shrubs or just want some inspiration, take a stroll through the paved walkways of our Landscape Inspiration Center in the nursery yard. Our 12 permanent, themed display gardens help you envision how these plants can be grouped together, grow and potentially can look in your own yard.
Our expansive nursery is the largest on Long Island with fresh material arriving constantly from the very best growers in the country, from spring all the way into fall. LEARN MORE
