For thirty-one years, Marc and Richard shared a passion for preserving and popularizing perennial garden plants. While Students at the University of Georgia, the two friends discovered a mutual interest in gardening and started Goodness Grows in 1977 as a simple landscaping business. After moving their business to Crawford, Georgia and starting with a few marigold seedlings they put into pots, the business quickly evolved into a "backyard nursery" filled with perennials, herbs and native plants. In 1983 they purchased land in Lexington, Georgia and began working on the plant-growing and retail business that exists today. Come view this expansive nursery on a beautiful 45 acres!
