Store Description

Originally opened under the Woolworth Nurseries® banner in 1961, our San Jose location became SummerWinds Nursery in 2002. This fixture in the landscape industry in South San José succumbed to a devastating fire in 2012 and reopened in spring 2013, with the welcoming support of the community. SummerWinds San José has brought back its outstanding selection of specialty fruit trees, vegetables and pollinator plants—catering to our edible garden customers. Sue, our perennial buyer and beekeeper, ensures stock is of the highest-quality plants for your habitat garden. Stay tuned for more on this store's upcoming spring face lift!
