The History of Miller Nursery
Quality Since 1966…
Miller Nursery was founded in 1966 by Jack Miller. The company started out primarily by doing landscaping work in Johnston, Iowa. They had a few trees growing in the ground and some shrubs growing in tin cans, but overall it was a humble beginning. In the 1980’s Jack Miller retired and Pete Click took over as owner. He added 2 shade houses and the other shade structures you see today.
In 1995, Jim Poulson, a long-time employee of Miller Nursery, purchased the business. From that time until now the nursery has undergone many changes. The layout of the shrub and perennial area has changed several times, a new retail office area was built, and recently, a new watering system was installed that allows us to produce better perennials. In January of 2005, Miller Nursery was incorporated by the present owner, Jim Poulson.
For the past 20 years we have been both a full service retail nursery and a landscaping company. We truly believe that the plant material, the custom designs, and the professional landscape installation that we provide are of the highest quality. We would like nothing better than to earn your business and to allow you to see that for yourself.
