About Us

Sleepy Hollow Nursery began in 1975, and has been continuously operated for 45 years at the same location. We are located at the foot of Harrison Ferry Mountain in McMinnville, TN bordering Highway 8 on the North and East sides - and Collins Scenic River on the South side. My cousins, Steve and Kate Dodson Smith (Aunt Kate & Uncle Steve) started the nursery with their partner, Tom Rowland in 1975. My brother, Mark, and I worked there in the summers; spraying, suckering, pruning, etc. After graduating from MTSU in 1983, I bought the nursery and have been the broke sole owner since. We strive to grow the best quality plants we can grow for a fair price. In the 90's we added several hoop houses to grow container material, but we remain mostly a field grown operation. We also expanded our field grown production to include two additional farms, but our largest farm is the original, main farm . We grow a general line of nursery stock which includes: evergreen shrubs and trees, flowering shrubs, shade and ornamental trees, and native shrubs and trees. We specialize in American Holly cultivars, Upright Holly cultivars, Boxwood cultivars, and Southern Magnolia cultivars.  If you need a quote on plant material, please contact us. We strive to please every customer by providing high quality plants and top notch customer service. Thanks for visiting our site!
