Our History

Sun Nurseries Inc. has been growing plants for homeowners since 1973. The original 20-acre parcel was purchased in 1971 and has grown into the farm you see today. In the 70s, Erik and Minna Rosenbaum opened the nursery for sales part-time while Erik worked full-time as an electrical engineer for Bendix Corporation, and Minna worked for Giant Food. By 1981 the nursery was open full time.

Annette Fentress, their daughter, has taken over the family business and continues to grow the tradition of reasonably priced, high-quality, locally grown nursery stock. In 1988 the nursery added 94 acres, a few miles away in Carroll County, allowing Sun Nurseries to produce the tens of thousands of plants we offer for sale today. We are committed to producing quality plants for our customers and have been for 40+ years.

Our family values drive the decisions we make in all aspects of the business including product quality, customer education, and employee retention. When you visit the nursery, you will find our helpful staff of both Certified Professional Horticulturists and degreed professionals. We believe an educated customer is the best customer. To provide our services, our year-round employees are our best assets. Our nursery associates, managers, designers, and landscapers stay on our payroll full-time, year-round.
