Wallitsch Nursery and Garden Center

Business is blooming at Wallitsch Garden Center. The homegrown company has been beautifying Louisville area gardens for more than 65 years.

The business started by selling cut flowers out of a small greenhouse purchased from a local estate. From there, Wallitsch branched out to offering potted mums and pansies, and later to offering bedding plants and small shrubs.

Today, Wallitsch Garden Center offers so much more than ever before. Jim and Mary Wallitsch have transformed Wallitsch Nursery into a lifestyle center offering full-service retail garden services.

Wallitsch Garden Center was started in 1946. Since 1996, the garden center has operated under the husband and wife team of Jim and Mary Wallitsch. With the third, and soon fourth, generations learning the family business, Wallitsch Garden Center plans to impact Louisville's gardening community for years to come.
