Growing more than just flowers
WildAugust was officially founded in 2015 by Jimmy & Jennifer Wilson. Originally begun as Lucy's Garden in 2005, the tiny retail nursery specialized in heirloom roses and locally native plants. In an attempt to garner attention for the roses, Jennifer began creating bouquets with them in 2013 and selling them at a local farmers' market. Her hope was that customers would see the roses in the bouquets and want to grow them in their own yards and gardens... but that's not what happened at all. Requests for more bouquets began pouring in, and in 2014 Jimmy and Jennifer decided to cultivate a plot of land specifically for cut flowers. The experiment was successful beyond their expectations, and in 2015 Wild August was reborn as a nursery, cut-flower farm, and flower shop. One year later, Jennifer left her career as an elementary-school teacher to pursue Wild August full time. Today Jimmy and Jennifer have just under one acre of land in cut-flower production as well as the small, heirloom-rose nursery that started it all. Wild August continues to expand to meet customers' wishes, and now welcomes guests to its very own farmers' market each weekend. What began as a dream has quite literally blossomed into a beautiful and thriving operation, and the Wilsons hope to continue to share the beauty of God's creation through their flowers and gardens.
Wild August Nursery and Flower Farm is located in Harlingen just south of Expressway 83, between Stuart Place and Dilworth Roads.
