Redbud Lane Nursery is located in Holly Springs, Georgia where Paul & Phyllis Long have watched the nursery "grow" since 1973. Paul began his career working at his father's side when he was old enough to carry a flower pot; Phyllis took a semester off from college to help out and the two have never looked back. Known as Long's Nursery until 1976 and then as Long & Patrick Nursery during a successful 20 year partnership, Paul and Phyllis once again became sole owners in 1996 and renamed the company Redbud Lane Nursery. Today the highly skilled staff includes Chief Production Officer Brian Bell and Chief Administrative Officer Patrick Long who is the 3rd generation of Long's with this company and the 6th generation in agriculture. This dynamic team has over 100 years of combined experience in the Southeastern plant arena.
