COVID-19 Update

Update April 25, 2020: Thornton Nursery is now OPEN in accordance with Governor Whitmer’s Executive Order 2020-59. We’re closely monitoring and following guidelines from the CDC.

A message to our friends, neighbors and incredible customers –

We’re living in unprecedented, uncertain times. The coronavirus pandemic that has swept the globe has hit home for all of us, and we recognize the stress and strain this has caused each of you. In times like these, it is critical that each of us do our part to support our community. 

In keeping with precautionary guidelines, Thornton Nursery has made the difficult decision to delay opening for the season. This situation is ever-changing, and our team continues to monitor all updates and adjust to new recommendations accordingly. While our timeline is uncertain, we vow to keep you updated and informed regarding our official season opening.

Until then, we’ll be practicing some social distancing of our own and taking all necessary precautions. The trees, shrubs and plants we pride ourselves on will continue to receive the tender loving care they need, and we’re still available to answer any questions you may have regarding inventory or product care. We’ll also be posting updates and new content across our website and social media profiles.

Since 1964, Thornton Nursery has been committed to growing and supporting our community. We remain dedicated to our friends, neighbors, customers and family through these trying times. Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions or concerns on any of our social media pages, by email at or by phone at (248) 887-2217.

Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to growing with you in a healthier future! Until then, be safe and be well.

With sincere well-wishes, 


The Thornton Nursery Team
