In 1983, Joe Quinnan returned to his home town of Needham with a fresh degree in horticulture from Cal Poly and opened Hillcrest Gardens. We’ve been a small, family-run nursery ever since. We strive to offer high quality plant materials that are well cared for and well presented. Our expert horticulturalists are on hand to answer questions and help gardeners make good choices.

We’ve always tried to make visiting Hillcrest Gardens a special experience. We work hard to make our atmosphere enjoyable and our displays inspirational. Coronavirus is putting a damper on some of the experience this spring, but we hope our customers will appreciate buying from a retailer committed to safety above all else.
