Arbor Farms Nursery is a family owned and operated garden center and nursery that is located in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Built on land that was once a working farm; the nursery still boasts a century old red barn that serves as a focal point for the 22 acre nursery. The owners, Dave and Raquel Geller, formed the business as a partnership with a friend, Dave Wenk, in 2000. Dave Geller and Dave Wenk were college roommates at Purdue University. Dave Geller earned a degree in Horticulture in 1991. Raquel earned a degree in Biology from Purdue in 1991. Dave and Raquel became sole proprietors of the nursery in 2005.
The nursery now employs 15 throughout the year. Most of the employees are avid gardeners themselves and bring experience and a passion for the industry with them. The nursery also employs a full-time landscape designer, Amy Oliver, who has a degree in Landscape Horticulture and Design from Purdue University.
Services include tree planting, design and consultation, delivery and plant selection assistance. Staff members are experienced in diagnosing disease and insect issues and can help customers select the appropriate treatment. Arbor Farms Nursery inventories over a thousand different shade and ornamental trees, shrubs and perennials. Annual, vegetable, and tropical plants are available in the spring. New plant varieties are being introduced all the time and the staff members make an effort to listen to their customer needs and choose plants that are superior in growth, disease resistance and/or flowering.
The nursery carries a good selection of landscape chemicals, natural landscape stone, bulk and bagged soil, mulch, grass seed, straw bales, and straw blankets. A wide selection of birdbaths, fountains, benches, ceramic pots, hanging baskets and other garden accents are also available to complement your landscape.
