About Us

Our History

Our story began in 1976 when Frank Kirby and George A. Beere purchased an existing nursery, Harmony Hills Garden Center, at a small location near West Ave and Blanco road.  Another existing garden center, Hollywood Park Garden Center at Thousand Oaks and Hwy 281, was purchased around 1978.  The names of both nurseries were changed to Rainbow Gardens in 1980.  Around 1985, two larger sites (6-7 acres large!) were purchased and the two current Rainbow Gardens locations (8516 Bandera Rd., and 2585 Thousand Oaks Dr.) opened.

Over the years, Rainbow Gardens has grown and flourished.  We’ve become one of San Antonio’s leading garden centers, while most competitors closed their doors.  Our interesting display gardens, quality plants, knowledgeable staff and huge inventory make coming to Rainbow Gardens an exciting event for the whole family.  We are proud to have been voted San Antonio Express News Reader’s Choice Gold Awards for Best Nursery in 2011 – 2015, 2017, and 2018.

Successfully Growing Citrus in Containers

Citrus is a big draw here in Texas. Who doesn't enjoy a slice of lemon wedged on their refreshing glass of iced tea? Who doesn't love the unmistakeable scent of citrus bursting from orange slices after a well-played soccer game. Citrus is synonymous with fresh. It's...
