Sacramentans are positively crazy about their gardens—and about this family-owned nursery, which has been in business since 1936. In addition to its huge plant inventory, Capital Nursery is known for its knowledgeable, trained sales staff. Many are California Certified Nursery Professionals. The company’s landscape division offers custom design and installation services. The nursery also broadcasts a live gardening radio talk show, “The Capital Nursery Garden Show,” every Saturday from 10 to 11 a.m. on KTKZ 1380 AM.
