Our Company

Greenhouse1Santa Fe Greenhouses is a full-service retail greenhouse and tree nursery located on a lush 5-acre oasis just off Cerrillos Road on Rufina St. in Santa Fe, New Mexico.  This year we are celebrating our 26th year in business.

We specialize in waterwise (xeric) plants that need little or no extra water once established and we offer a broad selection of award-winning and exclusive plants. 

With literally thousands of plant varieties to explore on property including hardy perennials, ornamental grasses, native trees and shrubs, groundcovers, cacti and succulents - this is a gardener's paradise. 

Besides being a favorite horticultural resource for local gardeners, we've become an attraction for visitors from around the country. We invite everyone to experience our beautiful display gardens, garden center and greenhouse.

Stroll our garden paths and charming greenhouses to discover our many unique and interesting plants.
