Schmittel’s Nursery has been proudly serving the St Louis and St Charles Missouri communities for close to 25 years.  With over 15 acres, our nursery has the largest inventory of quality, locally grown trees, shrubs, annuals, and perennials in the area.  Our staff is experienced and committed to providing our customers with customer services and information they simply cannot get at the big box stores.  Whether you need a full landscape from design and installation or a six pack of annuals to take home, our goal is to show our customer there is no substitute for quality and top rate service.

This year we have implemented our propagation program which has allowed us to provide more perennials and shrubs for our customers and insight on how they grow in our environment. Our program allows us to sell at a lower price for our contractors as well while providing a superior product. 

We know you can shop anywhere but we hope to earn your business each and every time you come in.
