Since 1975, family-owned and operated Tom’s Thumb Nursery has made its mark on Galveston Island by offering the very best in plants, garden products, landscaping services, and customer care in the area. Over the years it has expanded into one of the island’s most unique boutiques carrying specialty gifts, nautical decor and designer outdoor furniture.

Whether you’re looking to add a personal touch to your island home, seasonally shopping or wanting to liven up your yard, a trip can easily turn into an entire afternoon.

We also offer a complete line of gardening supplies, outdoor art, and advice to get any project going. With treasured tropicals, a plethora of palms and endless hues of hibiscus, Tom’s Thumb lends itself as the island’s premier botanical sanctuary. Stop by to consult with any of our knowledgeable staff and check back for seasonal care updates.

Thank you for shopping local, Galveston!


We’d like to thank everyone for their patience at #TomsThumbNursery! We know lately that sometimes stock levels are low & things sell out quickly.

We’re doing our absolute best in replenishing, however, we’re experiencing a shortage from our suppliers who have experienced damage from the winter freeze as well.

Don’t hesitate to ask us for an alternative at the Nursery or to be added to the call list when things arrive. You may fall in love with something totally different!
