Round Rock Gardens was established in 1972 as Murffy’s Nursery along the Chisholm Trail in historic ‘Old Town’ Round Rock. Over 35 years later, it is the longest operating garden center/nursery in Central Texas – some even say we are an institution.
The Round Rock Garden Center is dedicated to native plants and organic gardening. You will find the best selections of hardy natives as well as perennials, herbs, vegetables, trees, shrubs & roses — all suited to our climate.
