Nashvillians have been shopping with three generations of the Moore family. John and Nell Moore and their son, Paul, first opened for business in 1980. Selling mainly color and bedding plants, they soon expanded to a full-service garden center offering a complete range of flowers, shrubs, and trees, along with all the necessary supplies. Of course, garden chat and friendly conversation were always available.
During its 18 years of business in Belle Meade, the store became a neighborhood fixture. In 1998, Paul moved the company to larger facilities just down the road in Bellevue.
Today Moore & Moore is owned by Duncan Borders, John and Nell’s grandson. Duncan purchased the store in 2006 and quickly added a 5,000 square foot greenhouse to make year-round indoor shopping possible. He brought in an extensive line of garden gifts and home décor and made the store a major destination for Christmas decorations and gifts.
