Brief History of Our Nursery Business

Sunny Nursery was founded on July 1, 1996 by Manuel Villalobos and Leonor Macias in Riverside, CA.  Before starting up Sunny Nursery, Manuel had been working with plants since 1989 when he worked in a partnership with his brother in another nursery and Leonor was an employee managing sales and bookkeeping for that same nursery. Three years after getting married, we decided to form our own family-owned business with our innovating ideas for a new nursery, which we called Sunny Nursery.  With much enthusiasm, we were determined to grow the best groundcover plants in southern California. We began with only 2 acres and new materials to begin producing an inventory of plants to be easily available for customers of small and large orders. We also made time to personally visit customers and market our plants. We were soon able to broaden our customer list. To this day, Sunny Nursery has expanded to 10 acres of growing ground covers in the same location we began back in 1996. We are known for our specialty of growing up to date groundcovers that our clients love.
