Morgreen Nursery, @MorGreenPlants
In 1986, long time friends, Charles Moore and Kyle Rice bought Fant's Nursery located on Poplar Avenue in Collierville. Eli Lilly Agrarian and Collierville Resident, Charles Moore, saw the need for a full service Nursery/Landscape Company located in the area during the early growth of Collierville. Charles recruited the people he knew best, his wife, Joyce Moore, his son Eddie, just out of college, and Eddie's long time friend, Mike Omar to help him realize his dream of owning his own business.
Morgreen's commitment to offering locally grown products and exceptional service at fair prices paid off quickly. Within only five years of business, Morgreen outgrew their original one and one-half acres on Poplar Avenue. Six acres were purchased just around the corner, at 468 Highway 72, and became our current home. Morgreen's expanse allows the unique opportunity to provide a variety of visual landscapes as well as a broad scope of mature plants and trees for an ever growing customer base.
In 1996, we were saddened by the loss of Charles Moore, our beloved patriarch . His commitment and contribution to Morgreen's core business practices and prolonged success were, and continue to be highly revered . Within a few years, Eddie Moore and Mike Omar were able to buy out the remaining investors (Joyce Moore and Kyle Rice) to become Co-owners of Morgreen, Inc.
Today, in our 24th year of business, our desire to please and our commitment to excellence has grown stronger. Our pledge to provide superior service and a beautiful product remains our passion, one project, one client at a time.
