Plants, plants and more plants are now available at Sunshine Garden Nursery.

The new business has a wide variety of ornamental plants, trees, shrubs and cactus.

Located just east of FM 803 and Henderson Road, it’s the first full service nursery to open within miles west of Los Fresnos.

Katy Salinas and her son, Miguel, run the outdoor shop that opened to the public during a ribbon cutting held Saturday, Aug. 31. The event was hosted by the Los Fresnos Chamber of Commerce.

The Salinas said they have been working at the nursery for the last seven months to get it going.

“We bought the property from a friend of ours,” said Katy Salinas. “We wanted to do something with the land and here we are.”

The Salinas said they specialize in tropical plants.

About a half a dozen palm trees, including coco plumose and royal palms as well as several types of cactus are for sale.

Other trees include live oak and wild olive.

The Salinas said they want to make the property a place where people gather for such events like a farmer’s market, fundraisings and children activities.

The nursery opens from Thursday through Saturday right now but anybody is welcome to stop by or call at any time as the Salinas work at the place just about every day of a week.

For more information, please call 956-371-0475.
