Who We Are:
Rainbow Gardens has been serving the gardeners of South Texas with our two garden centers in San Antonio since 1976. Through the years, we’ve developed these park-like sites into garden centers that offer more choices for the home gardener than any other garden center in the region. Our professional staff has decades of experience, helping novice and master gardeners alike. We offer a diverse selection of plants and products that will make your garden experience complete.
Stroll down our paved and crushed granite paths under the shade of century old live oaks and soak in the garden experience. Display gardens, educational signs, expert-led classes and events, along with helpful advice from our state-certified nursery professionals all contribute to your gardening success. Our vegetable and herb selection at our Thousand Oaks location can challenge and surpass all other San Antonio nurseries. Unique features at the Bandera Road store like our old mill, butterfly habitat, and enchanted gnome forest make gardening fun 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, 2018, 2020, and 2021!
