Welcome to Sanders Nursery & Distribution Centers
Sanders Nursery & Distribution Center is one of Oklahoma’s largest and most respected nurseries, building upon the traditions of superior quality, fair pricing and great service established by its founders.
In February 1999, Northeast Oklahoma nurseryman Bob Berry bought the original 50-year-old Sanders retail-wholesale business based in Inola, Oklahoma, from the Sam Sanders family. Berry had begun his career around 1957 while attending Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, where he graduated in 1961, and started the Tri-B Nursery just west of Hulbert, OK.
In 2000, Berry and friends bought the 80 acres in Broken Arrow, now the home of Sanders Nursery, from farmer George Stunkard, the nursery’s chief operations manager. Since then, the Broken Arrow and Inola nurseries have served the public and the wholesale markets together as the Sanders Nursery & Distribution Center.
Sanders is part of the Berry Family of Nurseries, founded in 1993 by Bob Berry and his son Burl Berry. The Berry Family of Nurseries (BFN), acquired in 2010 by Insight Equity, recently made Irving, Texas its headquarters. Operating multiple nurseries in multiple states, it is the largest wholesale nursery in the country.
Our nurseries feature retractable roofs, automated watering systems, 24 sliding doors for vehicles loading and unloading, 600-foot aisles designed for trucks and carts as well as people, and inventory accessible instantly at strategically placed computer kiosks.
We serve a multi-state area, shipping thousands of fresh products weekly to nurseries in surrounding states, but our primary focus is the customers who walk through our doors every day. We are delighted to serve our consumers and wholesalers with the best prices and highest quality products.
The Sanders Team understands the needs of our customers and it is our goal to always provide the expansive variety and selection of top quality trees, plants and flowers for you. We want to help you “garden like a pro,” so we work hard to expand our selection and our ability to provide you with great resources and products.
