Rebecca Rogers

Amanda Valle

Incredible service by all Fanick's Employees :)

matt dimmer

Very helpful people, very large selection of plants, shrubs and trees and Roses!!!!


I love, love this place. If you're in a hurry though, you may have a wait to check out since there's only a couple registers. That being said, every employee has given us individual attention and answered all of our questions. They had just what we needed, and great prices. Lots of selection on a variety of plants, trees, fertilizers and pest control, soils, and other tools, but if you're looking for succulents, they mainly deal in agave, aloe, sempervivums, cacti and some occasional wild cards (like our pink ice plant!).

Tiffany Garcia

Great family owned nursery. This place is huge and has such a good variety of just about everything. They are completely organic. Everyone there was very helpful and friendly. They were able to answer all my questions, and I did have quite a few since I’m pretty new to gardening. Even getting close to closing time Mark took the time to help my husband and I get everything we were looking for and JoAnn was so helpful over the phone prior to our visit as well as in person. I will definitely be visiting them again very soon to get some pomegranate trees. Thanks for the great friendly service.

Barbara McClain

Love this place! Great selection of plants that thrive in this area and very knowledgeable and helpful staff. My little one also likes to see the concrete statues of dinosaurs, frogs and ladybugs, among others

Chynna Patchell

Huge place! Lots to see and choose from i could spend hours digging through their green houses. I was able to find a pretty rare calathea white fusion here for only 10 bucks!!! They have huge plants that have been well taken care of as well as smaller 2-4 in pots for very reasonable prices. Lots of organic soils and ferts as well as organic pest controls. Will absolutely be returning

Antolin Zuniga

Very very large nursery , very well kept, they even have golf carts to help haul your plants. Courteous Staff, prices are fair in my book. A must See & Visit place.

Donna Dobberfuhl

Good people, lots of selection

Carolyn Stobaugh

Always a great place to shop for plants.

Bianca Maldonado

Talk about some of the nicest people! Franick's has beautiful grounds filled with all sorts of plants. A helpful garden associate assisted me with selecting a new rose to add to my garden.


I love Fanick's.... Not only do they normally have a very large selection of roses I always find what I am looking for. The staff is ready to answer all your questions, very helpful, friendly, and run by family. I not only have been a retail customer but they would also donate a beautiful plant or gift card for our school PTA carnival Raffle. Mrs. Fanick is such a kind lady I suggest everyone should at least go once.

Arolita Conner

My first time at Fanick's was great. Found the owner to be very helpful and knowledgeable. Very impressed and will return. The grounds are filled with beautiful plants as far as the eye can see. The best part was the personal touch given to their customers.

Barbara Ramzinski

Very good

steve murphy

Great place to go If you need a huge selection, great service, good prices and a comfortable atmosphere. The staff knows how to help you select what you want and need. In the process of redoing our yard, I’ve had the need for expert help. I was dealing with poor soil quality in some areas, too much shade in one area, too much sun in others. I had two gentlemen walk with me and select the proper plant for each area. It turned out beautiful. Can’t get this kind of service at the big box stores. Check out the before and after pictures. The back yard was done and looks amazing too.

Venessa Hill Shahan

Love this place so friendly and lots to choose from

Andrew Zimmer

Our first time here and it won't be our last! They have a wonderful selection of plants and it's clear that they take pride in their product. The staff was friendly but not intrusive, which is the perfect combination of service. We can't wait to plant our new beauties!

Barbara McGary

Great family business! Huge variety of plants at great prices. They work hard to help the customer. If you have any little ones, let them find the dinosaur and alligator

Mary E Harkins

FANICKS PLANT NURSERY. Has been around for many years. People come from far away to purchase plants here because they know they're reasonable and the Fanick family has for generations provided healthy product and great information re how you care for your plants and yard. You can get your Fanicks Plant Nursery card stamped each visit and save $. Thx Fanicks.

Kristin Villarreal

The guy at the counter was very helpful and polite! They have a huge variety of plants and flowers and even little displays of dinosaurs for the kids to look at.

Cindy Hammack

I love Fanicks. They are the best. Always friendly and very helpful.

Karen Orton

Love this nursery. It's got plants and pottery galore. People that work there are so helpful and something just ask and they'll find it for you

Rhipsime Meitler

This is the best place to go for trees. They have a wide selection of trees for the area and the people are a wealth of information.

Danika Lewis

Fanick's Nursery is in my opinion, one of the best nurseries in San Antonio. I frequent many, but I drive all the way across town from the Seaworld area to visit Fanick's whenever I can. They're family owned and so helpful. They're honest and let me know when a plant or tree I'm thinking of adding to my yard may not be the best choice for the soil in my area of San Antonio, and they show me alternative varieties that might work better. They have one of the largest selections as well. Fanick's holds a lot of free seminars, which I love to attend. I could go on and on...Highly recommended!

Genevieve Alvarado

Luv it...great quality nice staff & we love the classes!!

Paul Guadarrama

I have been going to fanick for Year's. They have great trees and the service is excellent. The owners Mark and Mike and staff or the best. I highly recommend fanick's to anyone. Paul Guadarrama

The best garden center I have found in San Antonio. I have been going there for years. Recent renovations have made it even better.

Candice Martin

Loved the tree seminar today!! Great hands on class!

sandy g

I have never been into gardening and I recently decided to plant some trees and decided to try fanicks and it just blew my mind I have never seen a nursery like this before , it is so big that you can walk around for hours! I want to thank Glenn who came to our rescue as an inexperienced gardeners and recommended the best compost , fertilizer and mulch we needed. The best thing is the owners are hands on and are there to answer any questions you may have. Day one Mark helped and day two Mike was there! Thanks guys I will be a returning customer and already have recommended your business!

wendy hercules

Such fun exploring all the plants and features!! Friendly and knowledgeable staff!

Great selection. Very helpful staff. Easy free parking on the street and in front of the property. Easy to walk around their lot. Prices were fair.

Patricia Baber

great service, found what I was looking for...bought 2 azaleas and plant food. Will definitely be going back. This was my first trip.

Natalee Ziegler

Huge selection! I was looking to plant some trees but didn't know where to start. Mark came to the rescue. He knew exactly what I needed based on my soil type, growth rate of the tree and amount of shade I am eventually looking for. So friendly and so helpful. I will definitely be back for any future gardening/landscaping needs. Thank you Mark!

Judy Salazar

First time going with my mom and brother who are already frequent buyers. It was a magical experience! I love the quality of the plant, the feel was peaceful, the sellers gave you your space to explore and everyone gave us great tips on our plant care. Glenn was awesome and the cashier was very knowledgeable and kind. I wish I can give 10 Stars

Annette Ferguson

Wonderful local nursery that deals with native plants. They only sell what grows here, unlike the box stores. Mark Fanick is always a wealth of knowledge and so patient and helpful.

Farrahh L Calk

My husband heard about this nursery in the radio... we took his 91 year old mom with her walker and she loved it!!! It was easy to get around inside, clean and what beautiful plants!!

Jessica Medel

Great place to buy plants my daughter and son-in-law bought me beautiful plants there


Our first time visiting! What a beautiful hidden Gem! You can easily get lost in the beauty of this place. Mark was amazing and provided very valuable information on hedges and on where to find everything. A must visit if you are a gardening fan!

Johnny Sagan

Very nice nursery. They have lots of plants to choose from. Staff very friendly.

Delores Moore

Excellent as usual. Wide variety of plants. We were looking for plants for the vegetable garden and found what we wanted. There were several varieties of each plant we selected and they were all healthy. The sales personal we talked with were helpful and courteous even on this busy Saturday befor Easter. Enjoyed seeing all the beautiful blooming plants.

Louise Licari

Got all the veggie plants & rose bush I went for. Always enjoy going here!


Great place with incredible selection, knowledgeable and friendly staff and good prices. Definitely worth the drive.

Paula Harris

Fabulous! Gorgeous Nursery with Spectacular Customer Service. Glad I found this place. Very helpful & friendly staff. Well worth the trip if you are traveling from out of town. Prices are extremely reasonable & their inventory is vast. Will definitely be back!

Kelly Wenzl

Best garden center in SA- hands down! Oldest family nursery with sweet charm and knowledgeable staff. They will sell you best products out there- Foxfarm soil conditioner saved our lawn during the summer. Nematodes are needed to get rid of bugs in the lawn. And best part is they are organic and natural! Learn from the best.

Ellie Martinez

For 25 years I have been gardening in San Antonio and frequently visited all the nurseries except for Fanick”s. Reason being the distance and not being familiar with the area. Last Tuesday my daughter drove me over there and believe me it is well worth the effort to find them. Mark Fanick assisted me so patiently with my long list of plants that I was interested in and answering my many questions.For a wonderful experience I urge you to go a little out-of-the-way but well worth it.

S Segner

Fantastic selection of quality plants.

Erica Garcia

My cousin's and I had an amazing time shopping here for some vegetables and pretty plants for our new garden

Steven Reynolds

Beautiful place

Jessica Kruse

This place is a gem! It's a little put of the way from where we live in Thousand Oaks, but so worth the drive. The plants are excellent quality, the customer service is wonderful, and the prices are the best I've seen in town. We would have spent nearly twice as much at a couple other nurseries we go to in town.

Paul Mulhern

Great selection for the flower or vegetable garden. Good quality organic mulch, compost and fertilizer Helpful, knowledgeable staff. Been goin here for years, trust them to give good advice.

L nunya

New to growing citrus and purchased a meyer lemon bush. Staff was very friendly and courteous, even went or out of their way to help me and answer questions. Great selection with good stock that sells fast.

Adela Paez

Really nice family atmosphere they have cute little sculptures or dinosaurs and other animals.

Adam Vega

Best nursery in San Antonio, hands down. These folks really want your gardening ventures to succeed!

Javier Valdez

Very friendly and knowledgeable just let them know what you're looking for and your budget and they will show you what they have available. If you have questions about your plants they have answers.

Nick Windy

They look amazing and huge variety. You've got to get down there before their gone. Ask for Glen he knows everything and is great. Great place to get every type of plant needed. The staff is very knowledgeable when you want to make your garden great.

Andrew H

Amazing nursery, and the staff is very helpful. Great selection of roses, crepe myrtles, succulents and lots if things you'd never find at the chain home stores. It is worth it to peel yourself away from those chain garden centers and explore your local shop like Fanicks, especially if you want your garden to stand out a little. For example I bought a windmill palm and some garlic vines which look great in my yard, two things I couldn't find at the national retailers.

Bonny Badour

This Garden Center is so much more than the name implies. Their expertise and knowledge of plants and trees for the surrounding area is unsurpassed!

Michael Allsop

I live on the west side of town and it is worth the drive to come here. These guys know what plants work in what areas. Great advice. Have gone to a couple of the Saturday classes and these have been very helpful.

Abel Siller

Very helpful staff. Awesome selection of roses, fruit trees, and landscaping plants!

Andy Bloodworth

James is way to humble he makes my trip everytime i go to fanicks

Felix Buxo

This is a great garden center that tends to carry more unique plants and sizes. A bit confusing to find so use Google maps and just listen carefully to the directions. The staff is always friendly, it is well organized and there's plenty of parking. If you are a gardener, it's well worth the drive.

sabina neal

They have it all and lots of good Mexican food places nearby

Priscilla Franklin

Very helpful workers and great sale prices!

Lucy Duncan

Had a 20% sale this weekend so lots of customers. Such a beautiful place and good products and staff.

Tito Con

Great Service ans very Knowledgeable!


This place is great. They have a large selection - but the best part is their knowledge and helpfulness. I like them way better than milbergers and other nurseries for this reason. They also sold me the frog brand of soil conditioner that really helped my plants look beautiful.

Jim Russell

My first visit. Great selection!

Ruby Ramos

Love this place, never boring

David Whitmore

Fantastic place! The Staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. They were able to answer every one of my questions completely. Never pushed products and even gave me contacts for more information. An old-fashioned way of dealing with customers, but I won't go anywhere else because of it. Y'all need to check them out for all of your gardening needs.

Speed Racer

One of the oldest & most knowledgeable nurseries around with a great, helpful, & courteous staff. Great year round selection tailored to San Antonio region. Every heard of a long lived Fan-Tex Ash? The only Ash tree recommended for planting & it was created by Fanniks & Texas A&M! They can help with what to plant, when to plant, how to plant it, etc. They have many replacement parts for garden tools and a great selection of garden equipment as well as a huge lot which is kind of hidden from the street view. We ship at many local nurseries and like them the best for their selection, advice, and helpfulness.

William Mehnert

Overpriced. Nearly everything is more expensive than Rainbow Gardens.

Kelli Olivarez

Excellent location, beautiful in HUGE variety of plants & top notch customer service!!!!! Was my 1st time & for sure will be back, thank you!!!!!

Ton Ton

Stopped by here a week ago or so to check it out also to see if they had some citronella plants for the house. I am amazed at how big the place is with all the plants and supplies that they have for them. Plenty of flowers, herbs, and trees. Staff are friendly and seem knowledgeable. Only complaints I have are the fact that I didn't receive my points card after a purchase, I didn't realize it until after I left and the fact that the number listed online and business card does not work whatsoever. Tried calling to no avail. Other than that, I would recommend just watch out for stowaways.

Terri Bedore

Love this place! So much variety and VERY knowledgeable staff. We've gotten 6 trees (delivered and planted!) and many dozens of plants from here over the last 5 years.

Private Name

Always helpful! No matter how busy they are, they always take the time to stop and help. Mike & Mark are super knowledgeable as well as the rest of the staff. I go weekly it seems and always refer everyone to them at every chance I have. Love Fanicks!!
