Fairview’s History

Purchased in 1960 by Tom and Jo Ann Dewar, our Triangle garden center was simply 18 acres of Raleigh farmland surrounded by more farmland. As the surrounding population in Holly Springs, Cary, and Apex grew, so did the market for plants, flowers, gardening supplies and more. Fairview Garden Center met our customers’ needs through growing our business and moving from wholesale to retail services.

Building a Healthy Future

With its first greenhouse built in 1973 and complete renovations in 2003, today Fairview Garden Center is an enjoyable place to stroll through rows and walkways of trees and flowers of all varieties. Our Raleigh plant nursery remains a family owned and operated business by three generations of passionate gardeners. We welcome our fellow gardeners from the Raleigh, Holly Springs, Cary, and Apex areas to come join us!
