Prickett's Nursery History

Prickett's Nursery began back in 1941. Harry C. Prickett received his nursery license and grew and sold specimen Chrysanthemums and Fuchsias. In 1945, Harry and his wife Nelle moved to our present day location here in Rincon Valley. His son Harold became very interested in the nursery business and purchased 3 1/2 acres adjacent to his father's property. He and his wife Docia built a home on the property and moved from Oakland with their 3 young children, Mick, Jerry & Pat.

By 1947 Harry and his son Harold and wife Docia spent all their time developing what is now Prickett's Nursery. In 1965 Harry passed away, leaving the entire operation to Harold and Docia. Their 3 children, Mick, Jerry and Pat grew up at the nursery and as their abilities grew from weeding, watering and growing plants, so did their interest.

In 1982, Harold retired, selling he and Docia's ownership of the nursery stock to their 3 now grown children, Mick, Jerry & Pat. The siblings ran a very successful nursery until deciding to retire in June 2008, turning over ownership of the nursery business to Jerry's daughter Denise Baxter and two long time employees, Deanna Tubbs and David Kinney.

The new trio, Denise, Deanna and David reopened the nursery in October 2008 with renewed energy and vision in it's original location, leasing the property space from former owners, Mick, Jerry and Pat until their plans to develop the property came to fruition 7 years later. With the desire to keep a nursery alive and growing here in Sonoma County, the trio found not 1 but 2 new spaces to call home! One remaining in Rincon Valley and the other in Healdsburg!

Our new Santa Rosa location is only 1 1/2 miles east on Hwy 12 at Melita Rd. in the Valley of The Moon Plaza. (5875 Sonoma Hwy) Opened June 2015.

Our Healdsburg location opened February 2015!  Formerly Healdsburg Nursery at 12950 Old Redwood Hwy.
