Welcome to Newman’s Nursery
We are the premier Santa Fe Garden Center
Newman’s Nursery started in 1974 when Lee and Susan Newman moved out to Santa Fe with their two children after graduating from Northern Arizona University. With a little more than an old pick-up truck and a lot of determination they started out doing contract work for the Forest Department thinning and planting trees in the forest. After a few years of saving everything they could they were able to start up a nursery. The two of them leased a greenhouse at the current location of Jackalope Pottery. After several years of hard work the store was moved to the south end of Cerrillos Road, where it is today.
In the mid 1990’s Lee and Susan moved to the southern desert of New Mexico to further expand their drought tolerant growing. The southern location, Animas Creek Nursery, is just south of Caballo, New Mexico where they grow the largest collection of xeriscape trees and shrubs, fruit trees, shade trees, flowering shrubs and the best collection of roses in New Mexico.
