About Us: is the online segment for Patron Gardens Nursery. Patron Gardens is a family owned, fully licensed and insured nursery located on our 230 acre farm in Southern Indiana. All of our nursery stock is grown on this farm that has been in our family for over 200 years. Our trees and plants are watered either by natural rainfall or irrigation from one of our many lakes. Established in 1998, our nursery offers over 150 varieties of nursery items. Patron Gardens is large enough to have a wide variety of nursery items yet small enough that the owner personally inspects every order that is packaged. Our mission is to provide healthy, premium quality trees and plants at a fair price.

Our Guarantee:

We strive to bring you healthy plants and trees. We ship US Priority Mail which usually means you get the order within 2-3 days after shipping. We guarantee that our plants and trees will arrive alive and healthy. If you find they are unacceptable for any reason, please contact us immediately and we will do our best to insure your satisfaction.


Shipping cost is $10.50 for the first item and $2.50 for each additional item there after. We ship by U.S. Priority mail and attach a Confirmation of Delivery. Priority Mail delivery to most areas takes 2 to 3 days. We may use UPS on large orders. Most items are shipped within 3 days of receipt of payment. Extreme weather conditions in early spring could result in slight delays in shipping.

We are not responsible for damage by the USPS. Insurance is available by request, email us for fees. In our 8 years of shipping trees and plants, we have had only 6 items received with damage.

We ship nursery items beginning March 15 to June 1. Due to excessive heat we cannot ship in the summer months. Fall shipping begins on October 1 and continues until November 15.
