Built in the 1920s, long before Inland Empire Way, US 195, or even Interstate 90 existed, Nissen Greenhouses opened as a supplier of bedding plants and vegetable starts. These plants were grown in the rich bottomland soil for which Hangman Valley was known. In the 30s, Adolph Nissen sold to Henry Wallace, who continued, under the name of Wallace Greenhouses, to grow bedding plants as well as produce for the local supply house.
Decades later, having sold their greenhouse operation down the street, Cecil and Kay Jared bought the place from Henry´s widow and renamed it Hangman Valley Gardens. Various family members have held the reigns since the mid 1990´s. In 2007, they handed them over to longtime employee Terese Palaia, and Blue Moon Garden & Nursery, LLC was born.
We are a full service nursery and garden center just southwest of downtown Spokane. True to our motto: “Nice plants, nice people“, we proudly offer a wide selection of healthy annuals, perennials, trees, shrubs and native plants at a reasonable price. Most of what we offer is grown right here at Blue Moon Nursery. We choose what to grow according to what our Interior northwest climate prescribes.
We want you to be successful with our plants and beginning with hardy, healthy stock goes a long way toward that goal.
