I like this nursery. It is very serene and has a positive energy. Very good selection of trees, I'd say the best nursery in San Antonio if you are looking for fruit trees or plants in general.I drive from the other side of town just to go here. And they offer planting service, which I have taken advantage of several times. The rocky soil here is a real PITA as anyone who was tried to dig deeper than a foot down will know.Highly recommend.

Rainbow Gardens
After hearing that Rainbow Gardens was voted the Best Of San Antonio three years in a row, I decided to check it out. When I first arrived I was greeted multiple times throughout the nursery. The staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. I would highly recommend this nursery to anyone here and around San Antonio, they're plant selection and quality was unlike anything else you can find here in San Antonio.

After 40 yrs of shopping...I took a sick plant back, only to replace for another. "Manager" would not look at me in the face. Said it was All My fault. Made excuses for the dirt I used, etc. The bugs were crawling out of it !I am a seasoned gardener..but he talked over me. A 6$ plant. What happened to the customer being right. I didn't want my $ back..

my son uses your nursery only. Has for many years. I am looking for jasmine plants and gardenias. When will you have them in? Will they grow in Alpine, Texas? Maybe inside?

Ruben Flores has good work ethic and passion to his job. I had him to fix my sprinkler system two years ago and he did excellent job. Frank

Tips & Advices
A plant guarantee covers the buyer that if a plant doesn’t survive the guaranteed amount of time (usually one year, but sometimes up to 5), the plant will be replaced. This does not cover annuals, which have a life cycle of only 1 year.
How often to water a grass lawn depends on the climate, the type of soil that surrounds your property, and how deep the root system of your grass grows. A general rule for watering is: every day during summer in warm climates. This rule can be modified if lawns are older, or the climate cooler. For mature well-rooted lawns, deeper but less-frequent waterings are recommended as being healthier than daily 15-minute rinses.
Fruit trees should be watered different frequency of times depending when they were planted. Younger trees, up to the second growing season, should be watered twice a week. Make sure to give up to 1 full gallon of water weekly to newly planted trees during their growing season, and more when it’s gaining  eaves. Once the tree reaches mature fruit-bearing stage, waterings can be cut back, as the roots are sunk and can find ground water.
The question of when to plant fruit trees really depends on climate. The general rules are: You should not plant fruit trees when the ground is frozen, when the peak daytime temperature is more than 90 degrees Fahrenheit, or when the forecast shows extreme weather (i.e. a tornado warning). Aside from those rules, the suggested planting times are either fall (which most people recommend) or spring (for bare-root trees).
There are many kits sold on the market that measure soil pH levels. Dyes, test strips, and electronic pH meters are all formulated to assist the home gardener. Many people choose to simply shake up soil and distilled water, and then measure the pH with a hand-held meter However, some people consider this method not very useful, and suggest using a lab for greater accuracy.
