Our fraser fir cut Christmas trees are among the freshest in town! These hail from the eastern slopes of the Smoky Mountains in North Carolina. We like frasers for their aroma and how they stay fresh in water well beyond the holiday season. Our trees have brightened homes in St. Louis for over 50 years! If you have the tradition of using a live tree for your Christmas focal point, we have the right tree for you. Our selection of spruce and pine is excellent.
The Christmas Store
We've never been your average run-of-the-mill nursery and we definitely aren't your ordinary Christmas Store!
We know it's very difficult to walk through the big box stores and see the inexpensively priced poinsettias this time of year and not be enticed into buying. Keep in mind, there is a difference. These plants are grown in large quantities under conditions that allow them to grow quickly and therefore, these plants are typically very soft and prone to breakage. They are referred to as unpinched, meaning no cutting back during the growing process which would produce a much stockier and stronger poinsettia.
There are poinsettias and then there are poinsettias from Rolling Ridge Nursery!
Container gardening doesn't have to stop when the growing season is over. Taking advantage of seasonal cuttings, berries and hardy shrubs to keep your pots going into spring! Short on time?? Just bring your containers in for us to plant or pick up a pre-made combo pot that you can just set right into your existing pots! Gardening couldn't be any easier!
Decorating the home for the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons has long been a tradition for many families over the years. The festive and colorful adornments often begin at the front door. Those large containers sitting on your front porch, that were overflowing with beautiful flowers through the summer months, can be given a new look. Think about adding a couple of small conical evergreens to those pots to enhance the front entry and make your home more inviting for the holidays.
A favorite flowering bulb for the holidays!
One of the more popular herbs, rosemary, given as a gift, is thought to bring good health and prosperity to the recipient. Our plants come in topiary form and windowsill size.
In 1894, Henry Schulz stabled his wagon team at the corner of Gore and Marshall, in the middle of pastureland. People would come out by train from the city of St. Louis to hire Henry’s team to move their goods, furniture, and families “to the country”, which Webster Groves was considered at that time. In 1959, Henry’s son-in-law, James McMillan, Jr, inherited the stable. Along with his sons, Jim III and Sandy, they began a small business first selling compost and straw, then evolving into what today is known as Rolling Ridge Nursery.
