“I luv that you guys not only share this knowledge, but promote and support growing food by offering fall veggie starts. I will be visiting….. home grown food and urban farming is a growing (no pun) movement and by offering seasonal starts you are helping folks who might feel too challenged starting from seeds (especially newbies) and would have otherwise not been introduced to the delicious, healthy, and empowering experience of growing your own food. I have planted a lot of my fall veggies but I will still come and get my Hicks fix.” –Alphie C.

“Hicks Nursery has the best Santa! He is so good with the kids and always brings out their smile, even if they seem a little scared. We have been going to the same Santa @ Hicks for 3 years now and our son loves him. They also have a great little walk through, with mechanical x-mas scenes. Don’t forget to stop & look at the reindeer! Great place!” –Jen C.

“My parents brought me to Hicks when I was a kid, and I always loved it. As an adult, and now as a home owner, I’ve recently come back after a long period of absence. What a wonderful place, filled with really good products and some of the most knowledgeable people I’ve seen in any retail establishment. It’s nice to go here, get the organic lawn products I need, and also have my questions answered. Sure, you might pay a few dollars more than “Lowes Depot”, but it’s well worth it. Nothing like rediscovering a great place. Can’t wait to bring my son here for the holidays later this year. I can’t thank you enough as I work to get my lawn the best on the block.” –Jeff K.
