Creating one-of-a-kind spaces came naturally to Tricia Hunt. It was born into her, some might say.

As a young girl, Tricia watched her mother, a landscape designer, work. She absorbed her techniques, while the world of plants and flowers and creating beautiful spaces absorbed her tiny, sprouting soul.

“Growing up, I thought everyone loved gardening and being in the yard.”

While raising her own young family, Tricia started her own fledgling business, creating and hand-finishing garden planters from her garage. Word quickly spread of these amazing planters, and Tricia suddenly found herself—and her natural talent for creating beauty—in high demand. 

She bought the present-day Millstone Nursery, located in the heart of Germantown on Poplar Avenue, in 2008. More than two decades later,  her sweet, Southern-instilled attentive customer service continues to grow—along with Millstone’s inimitable selection of high-quality plants, perennials, annuals, garden planters, gardening tools, décor and much more.

“Everything else just falls away when I garden. It makes me feel calm and reminds me to enjoy the present but also to be excited about the season of what comes next.”
