G & S Growers
3237 Haney Drive, Cookeville
We are Gus and Sheila Rich, a retired couple that has a love of plants of all kinds. It is an absolute miracle to see how what appears to be a dead stick can grow into a large, flowering plant. As we work with plants we are continually reminded of how great God is!

We are one of a growing breed of "backyard growers" that expanded our love of plants into a business venture. We started propagating plants in the fall of 2013, just to see if sticks would come to life, and they did! The "bug" bit us and we were hooked! Now we have to draw the line on how many plants we propagate or they will surely take over our life (they already have).
The first plants were large enough to sell in the late spring of 2016 and now we want to sell plants so we can grow more varieties. This is being a lot of fun and some of our customers become our friends as we share our passion for plants.
2017 brings us to our first full year of business and we are making big changes: a new sales area, better parking, many new flowering plants and trees, and even a few patented plants. We are still a backyard operation though, and we don't want to change that! We are here to give you our personal advice and assistance.
